Recorded by Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson
Written by Leona Williams
A/A time 
 
G 
Most of my life I’ve been runnin’ around
 
Playin’ and  
G7 
havin’ a  
C 
ball
 
And  
D7 
maybe I’ve been on a party too long
 
These memories are fond to  
G 
recall
You see we’ve got this thing about women
 
Smokin’ and  
G7 
good 
 
alcoh
C 
ol
 
But  
D7 
now we’re lookin’ for a home life
With clean smellin’ sheets
 
And all the soft places to  
G 
fall
The women we’ve known have been many
 
But they don’t under
G7 
stand us at  
C 
all
 
Though  
D7 
we’ve spent many a long hours
 
Hopin’ some old lover would  
G 
call
Surely somebody somewhere still wants us
 
Or don’t nobody  
G7 
want us at  
C 
all
 
We’re  
D7 
lookin’ for a home life
With clean smellin’ sheets
 
And all the soft places to  
G 
fall
C 
Most of our lives we’ve been  
G 
outlaws
C 
Slept with our backs to the  
G 
wall
 
I’m a  
C 
rambler I’m a seeker and  
G 
we’re gettin’  
F#m 
weaker
 
And a  
Em 
whole lot more likely to  
D7 
fall
 
We’re  
G 
tired of the rocks and the brambles
 
Those  
G7 
barbed wire fences and  
C 
all
 
And we’re  
D7 
lookin’ for a home life

With clean smellin’ sheets

 
And all the soft places to  
G 
fall
C 
Most of our lives we’ve been  
G 
outlaws
C 
Slept with our backs to the  
G 
wall
 
I’m a  
C 
rambler I’m a seeker and  
G 
we’re gettin’  
F#m 
weaker
 
And a  
Em 
whole lot more likely to  
D7 
fall
 
We’re  
G 
tired of the rocks and the brambles
 
Those  
G7 
barbed wire fences and  
C 
all
 
And we’re  
D7 
lookin’ for a home life

With clean smellin’ sheets

 
And all the soft places to  
G 
fall

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.
