Love Somebody To Death Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

I ain't never robbed or beat up on nobody
I ain't never failed no lie detector test
But tomorrow I'm gonna be the town's most wanted man
But tonight I'm gonna love somebody to death

I'm gonna shave shower shine my shoes and shampoo
Break out my pinstriped suit with the matching vest
Climb in my four hundred horse wide track rollin' apartment van
Tonight I'm gonna lay some heart to rest

Tomorrow my face will be all over the post office wall
The town will put a price upon my head
I'm gonna be some happy lady's most wanted man
'Cause tonight I'm gonna love somebody to death

Gonna grab her, kiss her, squeeze her
Please her and show her no mercy
Premeditated lovin' at its best
It'll take seven days to get the smile off the corpus delighted

Yeah, tonight I'm gonna love somebody to death
See that shady character smilin' on the six o'clock news
Front page color Associated Press
You'll be looking at some happy lady's most wanted man
'Cause tonight I'm gonna love somebody to death

I'm gonna grab her, kiss her, squeeze her
And baby it's gonna be you think about it now
