Merle Haggard was somewhat of a fixture at the Austin City Limits concert series from about the mid-1970's to the 90's. 1991 was the last time he performed ACL, and it was a memorable show indeed. 'Under the Bridge', Merle's anecdote of a fired railroad worker from Saginaw, Michigan is a classic, delivered with storyteller's charm. And 'Sometimes I Dream' is performed in Merle's signature raw twang.

LYRICS BELOW

I lost my job in Saginaw working on the railroad
After twenty years they just put me on the side
Now I'm hungry in the street with no place to hang my hat
And nothin' but an empty dream to ride
But under the bridge, I can make believe I'm living in a castle
Under the bridge, my baby and me
And I can pretend that I'm a king and this is my kingdom
Under the bridge making believe
Hey, the doors are always open to any old weary traveler
And you'll find some great grub feedin' here below
Any old bridge can be a palace, call it what you want to
It's a place to be when you got no place to go
Under the bridge, I can make believe I'm living in a castle
Under the bridge, my baby and me
And I can pretend I'm a king, this is my kingdom
Under the bridge making believe
Hey, under the bridge making believe

 

'Sometimes I Dream'

There's no magic way for me to get over you
There's not much I can say, not a thing left to do
Seldom I laugh and seldom I ever cry
But there's times when I drink too much and times when I lie

Sometimes I hate myself and wish I could scream
Sometimes I give up on love but sometimes I dream

Sometimes I dream looking out through my window
Speeding through the night in a long limousine
There's a curse on my heart and I'll never love again
Forever a lonely man but sometimes I dream

Sometimes I dream looking out through my window
Speeding through the night in a long limousine
There's a curse on my heart and I'll never love again
Forever a lonely man but sometimes I dream
