Written and Recorded by Merle Haggard
[G]The old man from the mountain’s coming home home home
Thought I’d better warn you
So I [A7]called you on the [D7]phone
Get [G]rid of Joe the grinder you [C]better be there [G]alone
Cause the old man from the [D7]mountain’s coming [G]home
I’ve been a-working in the sawmill
I’m [C]all up-tight and [G]tense
And I got wind that someone’s
Been [A7]digging under my back [D7]fence
Thought [G]I’d better call [C]you let you know [G]today
That the old man from the [D7]mountain’s on his [G]way
Been working my dang fool head off all for a dollar bill
Now I need a bunch of good loving
So I’m [A7]coming down the [D7]hill
Don’t [G]want no friendly Henrys [C]warming up my [G]bed
And the old man from the [D7]mountain means what he [G]said
Repeat #1 x2[/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.
