UPDATED: RIP Merle Haggard

Fortunately, we still have Merle Haggard in his music, which will live forever. Here’s one of my faves. Please note the last verse of “Working Man Blues.”

“Hey, hey the working man, working man like me. I ain’t never been on welfare, and that’s one place I won’t be because I’ll be working, long as my two hands are fit to use.”
