When Did You Stop Loving Me

George Strait

When did you stop loving me?
How long have I been a memory?
I’ve gotta know for my own sanity
Tell me when did you stop loving me?

Was it that night that you stayed out until dawn?
You know that night has haunted me for so long
Or was your love already cold?
Tell me please, I’ve gotta know
Darling, when did you stop loving me?

There was a time when you worshiped where I stood
Heaven knows I’d bring it back if I could
Now I can tell when we make love
It ain’t me you’re thinking of
Tell me when did you stop loving me?

Darling when did you stop loving me?

Branded Man

Merle Haggard

I’d like to hold my head up and be proud of who I am,
But they won’t let my secret go untold.
I paid the debt I owed them, but they’re still not satisfied,
Now I’m a branded man out in the cold,

When they let me out of prison, I held my head up high,
Determined I would rise above the shame.
But no matter where I travel, the black mark follows me,
I’m branded with a number on my name.
If I live to be a hundred, guess I’ll never clear my name,
‘Cause everybody knows I’ve been in jail.

No matter where I’m living,
I’ve got to tell them where I’ve been,
Or they’ll send me back to prison if I fail.

Now I’m a branded man out in the cold.

If I Could Only Fly Lyrics

Merle Haggard

I almost felt you touching me just now
I wish I knew which way to turn and go
I feel so good and then, then I feel so bad
I wonder what I ought to do

If I could only fly, if I could only fly
I’d bid this place goodbye to come and be with you
But I can hardly stand and I got no where to run
Another sinking sun and one more lonely night

The wind keeps blowing, somewhere, everyday
Tell me things get better, somewhere, up the way
Just dismal thinking on a dismal day
And sad songs for us to bare

If I could only fly
If we could only fly
If we could only fly
There’d be no more lonely nights

You know, sometimes, I write happy songs
Then some little thing goes wrong
I wish they all could make you smile

Coming home soon and I wanna stay
Maybe we can, somehow, get away
I wish you could come with me when I go again

If I could only fly, if I could only fly
I’d bid this place goodbye to come and be with you
But I can hardly stand and I got no where to run
Another sinking sun and one more lonely night
