one of the best songs Merle ever wrote, and one he is singing in concert again, after many years of leaving it on the shelf. Lovely version by Steve Young on the 'Tulare Dust Songwriters' Tribute to Merle Haggard' cd as well.

Shopping for Dresses


SHOPPING FOR DRESSES
Jimmie Dickens, Merle Haggard, R. Q. Jackson
As recorded by Merle Haggard on "Going Where the Lonely Go" (1982)

Down through the ages men have died for their women
And they've done so, so many times
But each time I loved one, I always lost one
And I guess the right one is so hard to find.

So I'm shopping for dresses with no one to wear them
One in each color and one in each style.
Maybe someday I'll find me a lady to wear them,
And my shopping will be done for awhile.

I bet somewhere a lady is shopping for britches
Comparing the values and appraising each pair.
Maybe someday the good Lord will let us together
And we'll both have a new wardrobe to wear.

But I'm shopping for dresses with no one to wear them,
One in each color and one in each style.
Maybe someday I'll find me a lady to wear them,
And my shopping will be done for awhile.
