[C]You say that it’s alright if I go out at night
We have an understanding you and [G7]I
You say that life’s too short to get the most out of each day
Well I’m tired of your understandin[C]g ways
[F]Just for once I’d like to know yo[C]u worry
And [G7]be home waiting [F]for me at the [C]door
[F]Just for once I’d like to know yo[C]u love me
And [G7]I wouldn’t make yo[F]u worry a[C]nymore
You never seem to care if I go anywhere
And you don’t worry if I’m someti[G7]mes late
You never get upset you say everything’s ok
But I’m tired of your understandin[C]g ways
Hey [G7]I’m tired of your understandin[C]g ways[/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, 2016â€”his 79th birthdayâ€”at his ranch in Shasta County, California, having recently suffered from double pneumonia.
