    Lyrics

    (Merle Haggard)

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

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

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

    --- Instrumental ---

    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 'em where I been
    Or they'll send me back to prison if I fail.

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

    Now I'm a branded man out in the cold...
