Merle Haggard - Little Hotel Room Lyrics




A one man celebration ain't what I had in mind
As I sit here sippin' on a glass of wine
There's a working telephone beside my bed
The way the calls are coming in, you'd think the line was dead

Oh, there's no place like home
And it's lonesome in this little hotel room

The plaster on the ceiling just about to fall
There's a picture hanging crooked on the wall
The music on the radio plays on
For a moment there, I thought they were playing our song

Oh, there's no place like home
And it's lonesome in this little hotel room

From the window I can see a falling star
I wonder if you see it where you are
And wouldn't it be something if it's true
That you would make the same wish that I do

Oh, there's no place like home
And it's lonesome in this little hotel room

  4. Judy Bingham

    Ray can add "glamour" to a simple country song. He's the Master!

  5. Wayne Schwartz Jr

    This song is very awesome! Ray Charles and Merle Haggard definitely had voices that mix together well! I purchased the CD this song was on from Camelot Music and the very first time I listened to it I fell in love with this song.

  6. Classroom Goddess

    On of my favorite albums as a teen. This is how I learned about Ray Charles, fore I already knew Merle and the rest of the people on this album.

  7. Ken Byng

    This track was recorded back in the 80's. The vocals are just sublime, and the beautiful atmospheric steel guitar in the background is from the incomparable Buddy Emmons. 

  8. Douglas Hamilton

    Fuck Me......Incredible.

  9. RockyMountainRose

    Love this by Ray and Merle. Freddy Powers wrote this and I think it is one of the best country songs.
