013 - I’ll probably do that again, I’m Merle Haggard!

His mama tried to raise him better, oh she tried, she tried...... she didn't succeed, Mighty Merle Haggard everybody! Hopping trains at 10 yrs old, escaping children's prisons, local jails multiple times & we say “again” a lot in this episode. Literally born in a train box-car, childhood was tough for young Merle. He tried to walk away from his life of crime several times, but it wasn't until he met his hero, Lefty Frizell, that Merle started to change his ways! Hop a train with us, sit a spell & hear the story of: Merle Haggard, the Poet of the Common Man!
