Recorded by Merle Haggard
Written by Liz Anderson and Donna Austin
[G7]Today’s the [C]day I leave forever
This [F]town where we once loved together
[C]Now that love is gone I guess I’m [G7]free
I’ll leave [C]behind both you and sorrow
And [F]take just what I’ll have tomorrow
[C]When there’s miles and miles and miles
[G7]Between this town and [C]me
This town’s not big enough for [F]both of us to [C]be
I can’t go [G7]anywhere without your memo[C]ry
In every window pane your [F]face is all I [C]see
This town’s not big [G7]enough to hold both you and [C]me
I’ll drop the dreams I’ve held so tightly
[F]Shed my tears and travel lightly
[C]Anything to ease my heavy [G7]load
I’ll find a [C]town in far-off places
[F]Where the windows have no faces
[C]Many miles from anywhere [G7]along this lonely [C]road
This town’s not big enough for [F]both of us to [C]be
I can’t go [G7]anywhere without your memo[C]ry
In every window pane your [F]face is all I [C]see
This town’s not big [G7]enough to hold both you and [C]me[/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.
