Merle Haggard

Merle Ronald Haggard (born April 6, 1937) is an American country music song writer, singer, guitarist, fiddler and instrumentalist. Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band The Strangers helped create the Bakersfield sound, which is characterized by the unique twang of Fender Telecaster and the unique mix with the traditional country steel guitar sound, new vocal harmony styles in which the words are minimal, and a rough edge not heard on the more polished Nashville Sound recordings of the same era. more »

When I was young man
I worked on my own
You had the big chore
Of makin' a home

Now that I'm the keeper
Of all that was yours
I'm head of the family
And I'm boss of the chores

Living without you
Is a chore on its own
I understand what all you did
Now that you are gone

Sometimes it sprinkles
Sometimes it bores
When you're head of the family
And you're boss of the chores

When I lost you, darlin'
The kids lost a mom
Now it's me and the children
And there's work to be done

Look out for the babies
And I scrub all the floors
Cause I'm head of the family
And I'm boss of the chores

Living without you
Is a chore on its own
I understand what all you did
Now that you are gone

Sometimes it sprinkles
Sometimes it bores
When you're head of the family
And you're boss of the chores

Sometimes it sprinkles
And sometimes it bores
When you're head of the family
And you're boss of the chores
