Recorded by Merle Haggard
Written by Tommy Collins

[C]It’s a big house on a hilltop
Fine [F]carpets on the [C]floor

Expensive polished marble
Are the [D7]steps up to the [G7]door
Vines [C]are climbing up to the roof top
As if there’s [F]something they’d like to [C]hide
People call it the Fool’s Castle
And I’m the fool [G7]that lives [C]inside
The [F]girl is gone that warmed the [C]castle
Now it’s dark the flame has [G7]died
It’s a [C]big house on a hilltop
Without [F]love and without [C]pride
People call it the Fool’s Castle
And I’m the fool [G7]that lives [C]inside
She used to live here I thought she was lucky
She had what [F]most girls only [C]dream of

I gave her diamonds silk and satin
I gave her [D7]everything but [G7]love
And with my [C]giving I gave her nothing
She wanted [F]only to be by my [C]side
Yes they call it the Fool’s Castle
And I’m the fool [G7]that lives [C]inside
Repeat #2[/chordpress]

Who is Merle Haggard?
– Merle Ronald Haggard (April 6, 1937 – April 6, 2016) was an American country singer, songwriter, guitarist, and fiddler.
Haggard was born in Oildale, California, during the Great Depression. His childhood was troubled after the death of his father, and he was incarcerated several times in his youth. After being released from San Quentin State Prison in 1960, he managed to turn his life around and launch a successful country music career. He gained popularity with his songs about the working class that occasionally contained themes contrary to anti-Vietnam War sentiment of some popular music of the time. Between the 1960s and the 1980s, he had 38 number-one hits on the US country charts, several of which also made the Billboard all-genre singles chart. Haggard continued to release successful albums into the 2000s.
He received many honors and awards for his music, including a Kennedy Center Honor (2010), a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award (2006), a BMI Icon Award (2006), and induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame (1977), Country Music Hall of Fame (1994) and Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame (1997). He died on April 6, 2016—his 79th birthday—at his ranch in Shasta County, California, having recently suffered from double pneumonia.
