Ooh, another tune I ain’t heard in years…

…from the great Merle Haggard, at Willie’s Place, Sirius Ch. 64: “…And she had the likeness of a girl I’d seen in my dreams…but lights can do wonders, with makeup and faded blue jeans…”
A cut from Merle’s 1980 album Back to the Barrooms, “Make Up And Faded Blue Jeans” seems to be one of those forgotten Hag singles. I don’t even remember the last time I heard and don’t have a clue as to how it did on the charts, but I always did like it. Single-wise that was a pretty strong album, though; it also featured “Misery and Gin,” “Leonard,” and my favorite tune from Merle’s stint at MCA Records, “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here And Drink.”
