Merle Haggard - After Dark Lyrics




After dark when the lights turn on all over the world
Gamblers and musicians, lovers and harlots all turn on
I bid a hearty good mornin' to the evenin' that beckons me on
And dares me to sleep while the night half of the world moves along

After dark when the lights turn on all over the world
You'll find gamblers and musicians, lovers and harlots all turn on
I'll bid a hearty good mornin' to the evenin' that beckons me on
And dares me to sleep while the rest of the world moves along

    I bid a hearty good mornin'
    to the evenin' that beckons me on
    And dares me to sleep while
    the night half of the world moves along

    And dares me to sleep while

  14. Nina Garcia

    Listening to Merle's old songs, made me remember a song that I once heard. It was sung by Merle but it was a song by Wyn Stewart "It's Such a Pretty World Today", I wonder if you have it, I think it is not in any of Merle's album, maybe he sang it in a show.

    +Nina Garcia I'll see if I have him doing that on any of the live recordings I have.
