Haggard, Merle - There Won't Be Another Now Lyrics

The porch swing is squeaking and the night is like it should be
The stars in the sky putting on a show for you and me
I got a lot of words to say if only I knew how
There may be another morning but there won't be another now

We were kids together and I've loved you all the years I've known you
With hungry eyes I watched you as your young body has outgrown you
Something deep inside of me makes me want to kiss your mouth
There may be another morning but there won't be another now

I need you, I want you, I love you, can't you feel it?
If you don't give your love to me I just may have to steal it

Your eyes hold the secret and I like the look your using
That certain look of innocence is fighting lust and loosing
Slowly the oak tree disappears and the willow starts to bow
There may be another morning but there won't be another now
You're the one that I've been waiting for and there won't be another now

    A Beautiful Loving Song """ by Merle """ 💘


    we loved ...we played ...we cried ...we grew apart and then we read in the paper one of us died .......................................then there was nothing only one ticket on this ride .

  7. Allene Jimenez

    Thank you Marianne for this beautiful song!

  8. David Mombourquette

    I've really enjoyed all of the Merle tunes you've posted here Marianne. I'm 58 now and grew up with some rural kids who always had his music playing in the pick-up trucks on 8 tracks. I was a town kid who was into classic rock and didn't appreciate the depths of his lyrics, of the brilliance of his guitar playing and musical arrangements. What's amazes me is how brilliant his music became, and how much richer his voice was, after he got older (probably also the effect of a lot of cigarettes, whiskey and late nights on the road!). Even when he covers tunes from other singers (like "I'm so tired of it all", by Hank Williams and "I still can't say goodbye" by Chet Atkins), he makes every song his own. His last duet with Willy ("Live this Long") and his last recording ("Kern River Blues") are brilliant songs by two masters and should have both received a Grammy and CMT. Thank you for keeping the memories alive for Merle's lifelong fans, and introducing aging rockers like me to the wonderful world of a true American musical and poetic genius.

    No one had a better voice. The deep smooth and calming sound puts you in a trance like state. The only artist I can listen to for hours and hours and hours.

  24. John Jackson

    I first began to realize his importance and mastery as a songwriter when the album TULARE DUST -: A Songwriters' Tribute To Merle Haggard came out. Tom Russell and Dave Alvin produced it, and it is magnificent. This song is another I have never heard.

    Marianne Menon

    Yes I have the album John and it is indeed a great tribute....Glad you could listen to for you a "new" old song...It;s one of my favorites by Mr Haggard....Thank you for your kind comment!! ....
