This Song Is Mine Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

Sometimes songs are done by singers
That don't mean them
And at times I've done the same
And couldn't sing them

At times I've written songs
About some things I didn't do
But these are my words and mine alone
These words are true

I've written words in many ways
To make them rhyme
And at times I've stolen notes
That weren't mine

Sometimes I changed my style all around
To make it new
These are my words, this is my way
And it's for you

'Cause I love you
With all of my heart, my soul and my mind
These are my words, these notes are mine
And this song is mine

'Cause I love you, honey
With all of my heart, my soul and my mind
These words are mine, these notes are mine
And this song is mine
