Hungry Eyes written and recorded by Merle Haggard
C F C A canvas covered cabin in a crowded labor camp G7 Stand out in this memory I revived C F C Cause my daddy raised a family there with two hard working hands G7 C And tried to feed my mama's hungry eyes
F C He dreamed of something better and my mama's faith was strong G7 And us kids were just to young to realize C F C That another class of people put us somewhere just below G7 C One more reason for my mama's hungry eyes
F C Mama never had the luxuries she wanted F C But it wasn't cause my daddy didn't try F C She only wanted things she really needed G7 C One more reason for my mama's hungry eyes
F C I remember daddy praying for a better way of life G7 But I don't recall a change of any size C F C Just a little loss of courage as their age began to show G7 C And more sadness in my mama's hungry eyes
