MERLE GO 'ROUND
Kurt Fortmeyer)
Dad Zone Music ASCAP

When I have a day like this that I want to forget
I turn to a good old friend someone I’ve never met
He might be a stranger but he knows the words to say
To put my mind at ease and to take my pain away

I need a little bit of Bakersfield when I start feeling down
California honkytonk is the best cure that I’ve found
12 inch long play vinyl has such a soothing sound
When life treats me like it did today that makes my Merle go ‘round

My soul comes alive when it’s baptized in misery and gin
And it helps my feelings break out from the prison they’ve been in
When my poor heart has lost its way so lovesick and alone
I let his records play and they sing me back home

I need a little bit of Bakersfield when I start feeling down
California honkytonk is the best cure that I’ve found
12 inch long play records have such a soothing sound
When life treats me like it did today that makes my Merle go ‘round

As I lay me down to sleep with a teardrop in my eye
Tonight “Swinging Doors” will be my lullaby

I need a little bit of Bakersfield when I start feeling down
California honkytonk is the best cure that I’ve found
12 inch long play records have such a soothing sound
When life treats me like it did today that makes my Merle go ‘round
When life treats me like it did today that makes my Merle go ‘round

Country done Right! I'm a cal native and been through Bakersfield a few times. My dad played country with some of the greats, so this one hits "home". Good production, and great Job!
