  2. One of my all-time favorites, and my dad’s music of choice when he was in Vietnam. Love them both. Thanks, Merle. Swingin’ doors, a jukebox and a barstool.

    1. Its hard to imagine a situation where a little Merle doesn’t fit the bill.

  3. Kinda startling that this song is even more relevant now than when it was penned. “Poet” is a title too often conferred on songwriters when it doesn’t really fit, but Haggard’s best songs have a poet’s ear for the perfect word or image. He was also the best kind of journalist. Rest that ramblin’ fever in your soul…

  4. Merle’s passing marks the end of an era in country music, but his music will live on.
