Branded Man
(Merle Haggard)

G                                 C              G
I'd like to hold my head up and be proud of who I am
But they won't let my secret go untold
  G                                   C              G
I paid the debt I owed them, but they're still not satisfied
                  D              G
Now I'm a branded man out un the cold

G                               C               G
When they let me out of prison,I held my head up high
Determined I would rise above the shame
       G                         C                  G
But no matter where I'm living, the black mark follows me
                   D            G
I'm branded with a number on my name

Repeat verse 1

If I live to be a hundred,I guess I'll never clear my name
'Cause everybody knows I've been in jail
No matter where I'm living,I've got to tell them where I've been
Or they'll send me back to prison if I fail

Repeat verse 1

Now I'm a branded man out un the cold
