Written and Recorded by Merle Haggard
[C]Listening to the [F]wind
Trying to hear the voice of a [C]distant friend
Wishing you and I were [G7]close again
Listening to the [C]wind
Listening to the [A#]bre-[F]eze
As it whispers through the [C]poplar trees
Do you think I mean [G7]way back then
Do you listen to the [C]wind
Listening to the [F]night
Wishing we could hold and squeeze [C]each other tight
I can almost hear the [G7]stars so bright
Listening to the [C]night
Listening to the [A#]so-u[F]nds
Of a highway through some [C]distant town
I can almost hear the [G7]pale moon light
Do you listen to the [C]night
Listening to my [F]mind
Searching through my thoughts for the [C]perfect time
Using tricks and tele[G7]pathy at times
Do you listen to your [C]mind
Listening to the [A#]bre-[F]eze

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.
