This Song Is For You
Recorded by Merle Haggard
Written by Freddy Powers and Mary Powers

This song is for you you know who you are
I won't embarrass you by calling your name
F G7
You're here every night severing up the drinks
Wearing your superficial smile

You still wear the wedding band and your left hard working hand
C7 F
For a memory of a man who's chained and bound
Lord knows you need a man and an understanding hand
G7 C
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 the picture on the wall
F G7 C
The sad part is that the picture is not of me

That cold December day they took her man away
Never dreaming of a gentle heart they broke
F G7
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
C7 F
I wish they'd let me go so I'd be free
Break these chains that binds and release this heart of mine
G7 C
Before I run completely out of love

Repeat #3
