Someday When Things Are Good - Merle Haggard cover on 3 string cigar box geetar

Someday When Things Are Good by Merle Haggard and Leona Williams

[C] Someday when things are good I'm gonna [F] leave you
I [C] can't seem to go when things are [G] bad.
I'll be [C] one more love that you can [F] dream of.
And [C] one more man that [G] you can say you've [C] had.

You'll always be the kind to dream of [F] yesterday.
And a [C] way of life I never under- [G] stood.
And [C] someday soon I'll be just one more [F] memory.
And you'll [C] call my name when [G] things are not so [C] good.
repeat verse one

Yup, Vinnie.  That hat is the THING.  I bet you would do a good 'Today I Started Loving You Again.'  I truly do.
