If you haven't heard Merle Haggard sing "Roses In The Winter" you're in for a treat!

Sit down, relax with your favorite cup of hot chocolate, and listen to the perfection that is Haggard's voice.

This is one of his least known ballads, but one of his best. His lyrics "We'll find roses in the winter/we don't have to wait until June" challenge you to think about finding good things during bad times.

"Roses In The Winter" is off Haggard's 29th studio album, Serving 190 Proof. It was released in 1979 and reached Number 17 on the Billboard country albums chart.

Haggard called Serving 190 Proof somewhat of a therapy album. He was at a crossroads in his career. At the time he was 42 year-old, and was unsure if he wanted to continue his career in music. Thank goodness he did!

According to an article titled "The 24 Most Underrated Merle Haggard Songs", "Roses In The Winter" is the #1 underrated Merle Haggard song. The author describes the album as, "one of his best, generating at least four of his better known songs, but this track went unnoticed at the time.  An homage to finding light in the darkness, it will give you hope at the first listen.  Yet, other than a few of us devoted fans, no one has ever heard of it."

Listen to "Roses In The Winter" below.

Lyrics Below

We'll have roses in the winter
We'll have good times with the bad
We'll have roses in the winter
Love is all we have to have

There'll be a garden every season
'Cause love makes the sun shine every day
We'll be blessed with spring forever
With love and roses all the way

If we keep saying all the right words
And keep our harmony in tune
We'll find roses in the winter
We won't have to wait till June

We'll find roses in the winter
We'll have good times with the bad
We'll have roses in the winter
Love is all we have to have
