      Merle Haggard - Leonard Música y Letra

      When Leonard finally came to California
      He was twenty-one years old as I recall
      He loved to write a song and pick the guitar
      And he came to hang a gold one on the wall.
      
      The town in which he lived is not important
      But you'll know which town I mean by the time I'm thru
      He soon became a famous entertainer
      But Leonard was a name he never used
      
      He was on his way to having what he wanted
      Just about as close as one could be
      Hey! once he even followed Elvis Presley
      And he wrote a lot of country songs for me.
      
      But he laid it all aside to follow Jesus
      For years he chose to let his music go
      But preaching wasn't really meant for LEONARD
      But how in the hell was Leonard s'posed to know.
      
      Well, life began to twist its way around him
      And I wondered how he carried such a load
      He came back again to try his luck in music
      And lost his wife and family on the road.
      
      Spoken:
      After that he seemed to bog down even deeper
      And I saw what booze and pills could really do
      And I wondered if I'd ever see him sober
      But I forgot about a Friend that Leonard knew.
      
      Well, Leonard gave me lots of inspiration
      He helped teach me how to write a country song
      And he even brought around a bag of groceries
      Hey! back before Muskogee came along.
      
      Really I'm not trying to hide his showname
      Or the town in which this episode began
      Spoken:
      [Somehow I had to write a song for old Tommy]
      If just to see the smilin' faces in the band.
      
      When Leonard finally came to California
      He was twenty-one years old as I recall
      And he loved to write a song and pick the guitar
      And he came to hang a Gold one on the wall...
