Branded Man

Song Author Merle Haggard Lyrics by: Merle Haggard Performer: Merle Haggard Submitted by: Anonymous

[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 [D7]untold
I [G]paid the debt I owed them but they're [C]still not satis[G]fied
Now I'm a branded [D7]man out in the [G]cold

When they let me out of prison I [C]held my head up [G]high
Determined I would rise above the [D7]shame
But no [G]matter where I'm living the [C]black mark follows [G]me  
I'm branded with a [D7]number on my [G]name

[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 [D7]untold
I [G]paid the debt I owed them but they're [C]still not satis[G]fied
Now I'm a branded [D7]man out in the [G]cold

If I live to be a hundred I guess I'll [C]never clear my [G]name
Cause everybody knows I've been in [D7]jail   
No [G]matter where I'm living I've got to [C]tell them where I've [G]been
Or they'll send me back to [D7]prison if I [G]fail

[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 [D7]untold
I [G]paid the debt I owed them but they're [C]still not satis[G]fied
Now I'm a branded [D7]man out in the [G]cold


[Tag:]Now I'm a branded [D7]man out in the [G]cold


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

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

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

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

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

[tag:]Now I'm a branded man out in the cold
