Merle Haggard – I Think I’ll Stay Here And Drink (Live)

Ook voor de oldie van deze week blijven we nog even bij de drink songs. Merle Haggard zorgt weer voor enkele muzikale hoogstandjes in dit I Think I’ll Stay Here And Drink. Het werd zijn 26 #1-hit in 1980.

Songtekst :

Could be holding you tonight,
Could quit doing wrong, start doin’ right.
You don’t care about what I think.
I think I’ll just stay here and drink.
Hey puttin’ you down don’t square no deal.
Least you know the way I feel.
Take all the money in the bank.
Think ‘ll just stay here and drink.

Listen close and you can hear,
That loud jukebox playin’ in my ear.
Ain’t no woman gonna change the way I think.
Think ‘ll just stay here and drink.

Instrumental Break.

Hurtin’ me now don’t mean a thing.
Since lovin’ you, don’t feel no pain.
My mind ain’t nothin’ but a total blank.
I think I’ll just stay here and drink, yeah.

Instrumental fade out.
