Recorded by Merle Haggard
Written by Jimmie Dickens and Merle Haggard
[C]Down through the ages men have [F]died for their women
And they’ve [C]done so so many [G7]times
[C]But each time I loved one I [F]always lost one
And I [C]guess the right one is [G7]so hard to [C]find
So I’m shopping for dresses with [F]no one to wear them
One [C]in each color and one in each [G7]style
Maybe [C]someday I’ll find me a [F]lady to wear them
And [C]my shopping will be [G7]done for a [C]while
I bet somewhere a lady is [F]shopping for britches
Com[C]paring the value and appraising each [G7]pair
Maybe [C]someday the good Lord [F]will get us together
And [C]we’ll both have a new [G7]wardrobe to [C]wear

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.
