Branded Man
Merle Haggard

G                                  C              G
I'd like to hold my head up and be proud of who I am
                                  D
But they won't let my secret go untold
  G                                     C              G
I paid the debt I owed them,but they're still not satisfied
                  D              G
Now I'm a branded man out un the cold

G                                C               G
When they let me out of prison,I held my head up high
                                  D
Determined I would rise above the shame
       G                           C                  G
But no matter where I'm living,the black mark follows me
                   D            G
I'm branded with a number on my name


Repeat verse 1


G                                      C              G
If I live to be a hundred,I guess I'll never clear my name
                                    D
'Cause everybody knows I've been in jail
   G                                   C               G
No matter where I'm living,I've got to tell them where I've been
                           D           G
Or they'll send me back to prison if I fail


Repeat verse 1

                  D              G
Now I'm a branded man out un the cold

About the artist behind Branded Man Chords:

Merle Ronald Haggard (born April 6, 1937) is an American country music singer, guitarist and songwriter.

Emerging from prison in the 1960s, Merle Haggard has become one of the true giants of country music, as a singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist. With his hard biting electric guitar, he almost singlehandedly[citation needed] introduced the electric sound to country music[citation needed]. Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band "The Strangers" helped create the Bakersfield Sound, characterized by twangy telecaster guitars, tight vocal harmonies, and a rough edge not heard on the polished Nashville Sound recordings of that era. By the 1970s, he was aligned with the growing outlaw country movement, and has continued to release successful albums through the 1990s and into the 2000s. His songs display unflinching personal honesty about such universal themes as love, loss, regret and redemption.
