Red Bandana Written and recorded by Merle Haggard
C F We left home when were barely past eleven-teen C G7 We've been back and fourth and all around through hail and rain C F I've loved you half of your life and I’ll keep on loving you C G7 C But I can't change and live the way you want me to
F We spent a lot of time out on the highway C G7 Coming from some town we played along the way C F After thirty years and knowing me the way you do C G7 C You know I can’t change and live the way you want me to
G7 C That red bandana tied around your auburn hair G7 C You look like you ought to be somebody's wife somewhere G7 D# You ain't never going to be no Bobby McGee but your trying to C G7 C But I can't change and live the way you want me to
F Every time you leave the stage I know you've had your fill C G7 And I wonder why you grew up and why I never will C F Hey I'm forty-one today still going on twenty-two C G7 C But I can't change and live the way you want me to
