Merle Haggard - Why Do I Have To Choose Lyrics

Why do I have to choose and see everybody lose
To walk around and sing the blues, well darling I refuse

A love is hard to find, a love of any kind
But a love like hers and mine creates it's own design

So why do I have to choose, see everybody lose
To walk around and sing the blues, well darling I refuse

And when I think of her and then I think of you
The love is not the same but either love is true

Why do I have to choose to see everybody lose
Walk around and sing the blues, well darling I refuse

Why do I have to choose, see everybody lose
Walk around and sing the blues, well darling I refuse

    BEST voice in country music-Merle Haggard! Wonderful the two of them!

  5. Hank Logsdon

    Two great country singers, pickers, writers, and entertainers!!!

  6. Conway Conway

    I miss you Merle

  7. Jamie Martin

    Who are the 2 people who gave a thumbs down. Apparently not American.

  8. PasswordBosco

    Two of the best ever. When Merle Haggard was 14 his family was so poor that for a time they lived in a boxcar on a railroad siding in Bakersfield Ca. Just shows how talent, ambition and drive can take you to success and to anywhere you want to go, if you risk it and go for it.

  9. Johnny World

    Music's definition. Long live Willie.. R.I.P Merle.

  10. Jeffrey Stevens

    Why am I'm tear-jerked on this song? We love you Willie, and miss you Waylon!

    Jamie Martin

    Waylon is not on this one.
