Apropos of Nothing: Merle Haggard: “Working in Tennessee” (2011)

“Well, the water came in, the water went out. / I saw the Hall of Fame floatin’ about. / Look at me! / Working in Tennessee.”

Man’s got half a lung missing and he’ll still kick your ass up the street and back again.  Full of piss and vinegar and swinging like a wrecking ball, Haggard lays down yet another classic (is anyone keeping score?).  Why?  Because he can and you can’t.  Consider yourself privileged.
