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#

Of a highway through some  
C

I can almost hear the

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
 
As it whispers through the  
C 
poplar 
 
trees
 
Wishing you and I were  
G7 
close 
 
again
 
Just listening to the  
C 
wind

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.
