Merle Haggard - I'm Free Lyrics




Though I haven't got a penny to my name
I've got wealth beyond compare just the same
In my mind the greatest treasure there could be
Just to live the way I live because I'm free.

I'm not bound to anyone that takes my time
Or pleasures that will pray up on my mind
And I walk the roads and do just as I please
My life belongs to me cause I'm free.

I'm free from social ties that tend to bind me
Or to live the life that wasn't meant for me
Competing for the things that have no meaning
I'm wealthy in my mind because I'm free.

The ribbons of the land that keep me a knowing
There's always something new for me to see
A whistle in the wind then I'll be going
To live the way I live because I'm free.

Though I haven't got a penny to my name
I've got wealth beyond compare just the same
In my mind the greatest treasure there could be
Just to live the way I live because I'm free...

    Though I haven't got a penny to my name
    I've got wealth beyond compare just the same
    In my mind the greatest treasure there could be
    Just to live the way I live because I'm free.

    I'm not bound to anyone that takes my time
    Or pleasures that will pray up on my mind
    And I walk the roads and do just as I please
    My life belongs to me 'cause I'm free.

    I'm free from social ties that tend to bind me
    Or to live the life that wasn't meant for me
    Competing for the things that have no meaning
    I'm wealthy in my mind because I'm free.
    *****************
    The ribbons of the land that keep me a knowing
    There's always something new for me to see
    A whistle in the wind then I'll be going
    To live the way I live because I'm free.

    Though I haven't got a penny to my name
    I've got wealth beyond compare just the same
    In my mind the greatest treasure there could be
    Just to live the way I live because I'm free.....

    A whole lot of his music didn't get the deserved recognition.
