What is your favorite Merle Haggard Song?
Trying Not To Love You is mine.
Tough call though, Merle is my all time favorite country artist.
Nobody wrote, or sang as well as him, IMO.
Today I started loving you again
Mama Tried is my favorite but Ramblin' Fever is right up there.
Living with the shades pulled down
Working Man's Blues~
Are the Good Times really over
tough to pick one I like rainbow stew, stay here and drink and the way i am.
Someday We'll Look Back
Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down
Tough call when so many of his songs were so good.
I'll say "It's All In The Movies", but ask me a fews minutes later and I might name another tune.
Love that one, too.
All good stuff - can't possibly pick just one. Two more that I like: That's the Way Love Goes and
Misery and Gin.
His vocals are perfect.
Merle and Willie did a duet album not too long ago.
"Unfair Weather Friend" hit home with me, absolutely love the song.
As far as Merle alone, Gosh so many favorites to choose from. I guess I will say "Stay here and Drink" is tops because I learned all 6 cover solos on guitar not too long ago.
Lonesome Fugitive is probably my favorite quintessential Merle tune. Gotta love the James Burton picking on Working Man Blues tough.
As others have said, it's a tough assignment to just pick one favorite. Two of his songs that I perform come to mind: "Daddy Frank (The Guitar Man)" and "If We Make It Through December." I play these as a medley, so I'm counting them as one.
Oh, has anyone mentioned "Silver Wings" yet?
Stay Here and Drink
Silver Wings, but only because I like all of his songs, just pulled that one up first. I don't know if there is such a thing as a favorite Merle song, 'cause man, he's Merle they're all good! Here man, sing us a few bars of these yellow pages from the phone book. Wow, that's really good Merle! I'm good with that.
