This unforgettable country singer wears his heart on his sleeve in this emotional and purposeful song dedicated to the woman of his dreams.
Merle Haggard has always been known as a man who tells a story through his music and in this gratuitous track from his 1987 album, Chill Factor, he speaks of a love so great that he’s been saved by it – and therefore is “Thanking The Good Lord.”
“The pieces are all falling together / The picture is coming in view / When I thought the end was upon me / I found my purpose in you”
An upbeat and spirited song, “Thanking The Good Lord” features classic country instruments and sounds like a steel guitar which help this beloved tune bring back memories from years past and the lyrics remind us all to be thankful of the special people we have in our lives.
