Merle Haggard - Will You Visit Me On Sundays? Lyrics




Just outside these prison bars the hanging tree is waitin'
At sunrise I'll meet darkness and death will say hello
Darling touch your lips to mine and tell me that you love me
Promise me again before you go.

Will you visit me on Sundays, will you bring me pretty flowers
Will your big blue eyes be misty will you brush away a tear
A grave is filled with silence but if a sleeping man could hear
Darling would I hear your footsteps up there.

Promise me that time won't separate me from your mem'ry
That you'll remember me until the days of silver hair
If not for you I know I'd lose my mind before the morning
Hold me close and tell me that you care.

And will you visit me on Sundays, will you bring me pretty flowers
Will your big blue eyes be misty will you brush away a tear
A grave is filled with silence but if a sleeping man could hear
Darling would I hear your footsteps up there.

Will you visit me on Sundays, will you bring me pretty flowers
Will your big blue eyes be misty will you brush away a tear
A grave is filled with silence but if a sleeping man could hear
Darling would I hear your footsteps up there...

    Just outside these prison bars
    a hanging tree is waiting
    At sunrise I'll meet darkness
    and death will say hello
    Darling put you lips to mine
    and tell me that you love me
    promise me again before you go

    Will you visit me on Sundays,
    Will you bring me pretty flowers
    Will your big blue eyes be misty,
    will you brush away a tear
    A grave is filled with silence,
    but if a sleeping man could hear
    Darling, will I hear your footsteps up there.

    If not for you I know

    Hold me close and tell me that you care

    Will you visit me on Sundays,
    Will you bring me pretty flowers
    Will your big blue eyes be misty,
    will you brush away a tear
    A grave is filled with silence,
    but if a sleeping man could hear
    Darling, will I hear your footsteps up there.

    Will you visit me on Sundays,
    Will you bring me pretty flowers
    Will your big blue eyes be misty,
    will you brush away a tear.....

    He could a very good impression of Marty Robbins and others. He named a son after Marty Robbins. Both were GREAT singers, may they rest in peace.

    Merle nails this! Conway Twitty does an incredible version of this on his original 1970 Hello Darlin' album, my favorite version by far.

  13. Betty Lyons

    oh my God this song breaks my heart, love it , only Merle could sing this

    Kenny Dobbins

    I'm pretty sure Johnny Cash could sing it to.

  14. Harold Martin

    He had full stereo from both lungs back then.

    Michael Cummins

    And he could always breathe in key.

  15. Bj Cordes

    he gave us so very, very much. his songs made us laugh, dance and cry. I saw him the first time in 1966 I'm 64 now and never stopped going to his concerts. his music and that unique, incredible voice will live forever. thank you, Merle. God bless your soul.

    @1974Pbass Thanks for the info. I had no idea they did it. I guess I'm going to have to scout around the tube and see if I can find it. I'd love to hear their version.

  22. Gary Hudgins

    ivan, you're correct. "Sing Me Back Home" was written for Merles friend on his way to the gas chamber. (Death penalty in CA) This song was originaly done by Conway Twitty.

    John Hostetler

    I George jones

  23. Triangelina

    I haven't hear this song before. Great.
