Merle Haggard - You Babe Lyrics




Sometimes this ol' world's a drag, it really puts me down
I try so hard but nothin' comes around
Then I look up to find that I've no reason to be blue
I've already found the whole wide world with you

And if there's nothin' else I do
To spend my whole life through
Lovin' you, babe, you babe
I'll always be in command
Just as long as I'm the man
Lovin' you, babe, you babe

And I can stand real tall
Stand up to it all lovin' you, baby, just you

One time this old rocky road block was just too tough
I felt like sayin', "Lord, I've had enough?
Then I heard something special that a deaf man couldn't miss
I heard it in the whisper of your kiss

And if there's nothin' else I do
To spend my whole life through
Lovin' you babe, you babe
I'll always be in command
Just as long as I'm the man
Lovin' you babe, you babe

And I can stand real tall
Stand up to it all lovin' you, baby, just you
Lovin' you babe, you babe

    Sometimes this ol' world's a drag,
    it really puts me down
    I try so hard but nothin' comes around
    Then I look up to find that I've no reason to be blue
    I've already found the whole wide world with you

    And if there's nothin' else I do
    To spend my whole life through
    Lovin' you, babe, you babe

    I'll always be in command
    Just as long as I'm the man
    Lovin' you, babe, you babe
    And I can stand real tall
    Stand up to it all lovin' you, baby, just you
    ***************
    One time this old rocky road block
    was just too tough
    I felt like sayin', "Lord, I've had enough?
    Then I heard something special
    that a deaf man couldn't miss
    I heard it in the whisper of your kiss

    And if there's nothin' else I do
    To spend my whole life through
    Lovin' you babe, you babe

    I'll always be in command
    Just as long as I'm the man
    Lovin' you babe, you babe
    And I can stand real tall
    Stand up to it all lovin' you, baby, just you
    Mmm lovin' you babe, you babe.....

    Love The Hag and everything he ever sang! Every night, headphones on, I drift off to dreamland and wake in the a.m. still listening to the Great Merle! Sometimes I change it up and listen to Noel and Ben Haggard, singing their Daddy’s songs! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Loved Merle since the 60's even before I saw him in concert with Buck Owens. His music will play on in my home for ever.

  9. Hagfan789

    I sure loved the music Merle put out in the 80's & 90's. It just had a certain sound about it. This album & his Blue Jungle hits..his work with George Jones..all good
