Branded Man  Merle Haggard


Merle Haggard
[G]I'd like to hold my head up and be [C]proud of who I [G]am
But they won't let my secret go un[D]told
I [G]paid the debt I owed them,but they're [C]still not satis[G]fied
Now I'm a branded [D]man out un the [G]cold
[G]When they let me out of prison,I [C]held my head up [G]high
Determined I would rise above the [D]shame
But no [G]matter where I'm living,the [C]black mark follows [G]me
I'm branded with a [D]number on my [G]name
Repeat verse 1
[G]If I live to be a hundred,I guess I'll [C]never clear my [G]name
'Cause everybody knows I've been in [D]jail
No [G]matter where I'm living,I've got to [C]tell them where [G]I've been
Or they'll send me back to [D]prison if I [G]fail
Repeat verse 1
Now I'm a branded [D]man out un the [G]cold
