Branded Man Lyrics

Artist: Merle Haggard
Album: Branded Man

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 payed the debt 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.
Now I'm a branded man out in the cold.
