Red Bandana  Merle Haggard

We left ho[D]me when were barely past eleve[G]n-teen
We've been ba[D]ck and fourth and all around through h[A7]ell and rain
I've lov[D]ed you half of your life and Ill keep on lov[G7]ing you
But I can't change and li[A7]ve the way you wa[D]nt me to.
We sp[D]ent a lot of time out on the hi[G]ghway
Comi[D]ng from some town we played al[A7]ong the way
After 3[D]0 years and knowing me the w[G]ay you do
You know I[D] cant change and li[A7]ve the way you w[D]ant me to .
T[G]hat re[A7]d bandana tied around your a[D]uburn hair
You loo[A7]k like you ought to be somebody's wif[D]e somewhere
You ain't never going to be no bobby Mcgee but your try[G7]ing to
But [D]I can't change and li[A7]ve the way you wa[D]nt me to
Every ti[D]me you leave the stage I know you've h[G7]ad your fill
And I wo[D]nder why you grew up and why I n[A7]ever will
Hey I'm 4[D]1-today still going on 2[G7]2,
But [D]I can't change and l[A7]ive the way you w[D]ant me to
I[D] can't change and liv[A7]e the way you wa[D]nt me to
