Better Off When I Was Hungry
Written & Recorded by Merle Haggard

(No Capo)

Intro.:  (A) x 4 bars

I (A)read they're havin' (D)rain in Cali-(A)fornia
And (D)Lord, I hope that (A)you're not gettin' (E)wet
That's the (A)only way on (D)earth I have for (A)knowin' how you're (D)doin'
When you (A)left you said you (D)call but you ain't (A)yet

(Chorus)
And I (A)think I was better (D)off when I was (A)hungry
And (D)fightin' off the (A)wolfs from our front (E)door
But I (A)wrote this song and it (D)came on strong and (A)left you once too (D)often
Now I (A)think I was better (D)off when I was (A)hungry

Solo:  |(A) |(D) |(A) |(A) |(A) |(E) |(A) |(A)

My (A)guitar brought us (D)here to Bonmat (A)Texas
And I (D)bought you every-(A)thing your eyes could (E)see
But the (A)mansion couldn't (D)hold you could no-(A)body's arms to (D)warm you
I (A)guess I gave you (D)everything (A)but me

(Chorus)
And I (A)think I was better (D)off when I was (A)hungry
And (D)fightin' off the (A)wolfs from our front (E)door
But I (A)wrote this song and it (D)came on strong and (A)left you once too (D)often
Now I (A)think I was better (D)off when I was (A)hungry
