THIS SONG IS FOR YOU (Freddy Powers / Mary Lou Powers) Merle Haggard - 1985 This song is for you and you know who you are Won't embarrass you by callin' out your name But you're here every night servin' up the drinks And wearin' your superficial smile You still wear the wedding band on your left hard-workin' hand For a memory of a man who's chained and bound Lord knows you need a man and an understanding hand Before you run completely out of love You can't stay in love with a memory You can't stay in love with a dream Yet you've fallen in love with a picture on the wall And the sad part is the picture is not of me That cold December day they took her man away Never dreaming of the gentle heart they broke Now she waits by the phone, she waits there all alone But the only one who ever calls is me Now I'm a prisoner of a slave to one way love I wish they'd let him go, so I'd be free Break these chains that bind and release this heart of mine Before I run completely out of love You can't stay in love with a memory You can't fall in love with a dream Yet you've fallen in love with a picture on the wall And the sad part is the picture is not of me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
