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

Repeat #3
