"Always Wanting You" was released in 1975 and became Merle Haggard's 20th number one hit.

Reportedly, Merle wrote the song for Dolly PartonĀ because he fell in love with her when recording her song Kentucky Gambler, but knew he could never have her. So sad and sweet...

LYRICS BELOW

Always wanting you, but never having you,
Makes it hard to face tomorrow 'cause I
Know I'll be wanting you again.


Always loving you but never touching you,
Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand.

I'd been better off if I'd turned away and never
Looked at you the second time
'Cause I really had my life all together
Till your eyes met mine.

And there I saw a yearning and a feeling 'cross
The room that you felt for me.
Wish I'd had a way of knowing that the things we had in
Mind could never be.

Always loving you but never touching you
Sometimes hurts me almost more than I can stand.
