#9 – Merle Haggard, Motorcycle Cowboy

Merle Haggard: Motorcycle Cowboy

In his Motorcycle Cowboy video, Merle straddles a Harley and sings about marrying his “stringy-haired blonde biker babe” as bikers circle the happy couple. Merle’s body of work stands with country music’s best. Heck, I could probably write the rest of this blurb using just Hag song titles. Here goes: “Why Am I Drinkin’? I Must Have Done Something Bad. I Must’ve Been Drunk, but I Don’t Want To Sober Up Tonight and there’s No Reason To Quit. I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am, a Big Butter and Egg Man. I’m Goin’ Back To The Barroom Again, go thru those Swinging Doors into A Bar In Bakersfield, get a Misery and Gin and Drink Up And Be Somebody with my Bar Room Buddies. Me and The Farmer’s Daughter will Chase Each Other Around the Room. I know It’s Not Love (But It’s Not Bad). Mama Tried, but I Can’t Break The Habit. So I Think I’ll Just Stay Here And Drink.” Shazam.

    “James Gang Rides Again” definitely top 5.

  • Tyler

    I was excited to see Meat Loaf’s Bat out of Hell album as the opening artwork for this, but then it only gets number 3? It’s one of the most badass albums ever made, capped off by a sweet bike, unfortunately not a Harley, which may have warranted it’s number 3 spot. Oh well, as Prince would say, “Game. Blouses.”
