Merle Haggard - For All I Know Lyrics




For all I know you never cared about me
And chances are I never crossed your mind
Maybe you won't understand me calling
But darling it's been such a long long time.

For all I know there may be someone with you now
But may be he won't mind the friendly call
You've already made it clear that you stopped loving me
And for all I know you never cared at all.

I can't help it if I sound like I've been crying
'Cause darling I've been crying all night long
I just call to let you know just how much I need you
And for all I know you may be there alone.

Surely you must know I'd give the world to see you now
And could be you'd like to have me one more time
You've already made it clear that you stopped loving me
But for all I know I may have lost my mind.

And for all I know I may have lost my mind.

    For all I know you never cared about me
    And chances are I never crossed your mind
    Maybe you won't understand me calling
    But darling it's been such a long long time.

    For all I know there may be someone with you now
    But may be he won't mind the friendly call
    You've already made it clear
    that you stopped loving me
    And for all I know you never cared at all.

    I can't help it, if I sound like I've been crying
    'Cause darling I've been crying all night long
    I just call to let you know how much I need you
    And for all I know you may be there alone.

    Surely you must know
    I'd give the world to see you now
    And could be you'd like to have me one more time
    You've already made it clear
    that you stopped loving me
    But for all I know I may have lost my mind.

Not to say , be honored that you're his sons which I know you are! Don't give up your dreams! Merle would be proud! I miss him as you do,I'm sure! Rest In Peace Merle !

    A lot of folks say Merle was one of the best singers ever....It's quite possible. I know he is my favorite......Not only one of the best vocalist,but his ability for writing songs is legendary....William Shakespeare would've loved "The Hag".

    Yes Ma'am...I'm sure Ol Merle,and your late Jim,are smiling....Sorry for your loss,you'll be together again...Best wishes,Maynard in Deep Gap,NC

    Rick Willis

    Janelle Klintworth I love his music also. My bedroom has several pictures of Merle hanging on my wall, along with my Kentucky Wildcats. I'm so glad Merle was alive during my lifetime. I saw him in concert in Cincinnati back in 1968. I was only 8 years old. But remember it like it was yesterday. I grew up listening to "The Great One." I'm 57 now and may be gone soon. I have cancer again. Not looking like I'll make it this time. But I look forward to meeting Merle in Heaven.

    Tom Page

    Rick Willis Go Big Blue !

    Ronny Lee

    God bless you...

  56. william o'brien
