Merle Haggard -- Branded Man
Merle Haggard -- "Mama Tried" Despite all my Sunday learning, Towards the bad, I kept on turning. 'Til Mama couldn't hold me anymore. And I turned twenty-one in prison doing life without parole. No-one could steer me right but Mama tried, Mama tried. Mama tried to raise me better, but her pleading, I denied. That leaves only me to blame 'cos Mama tried.

On one hand I count the reasons, I could stay with you And hold you close to me, all night long. So many lover's games, I'd love to play with you On that hand there's no reason, why it's wrong But on the other hand, there's a golden band To remind me of someone who would not understand On one hand I could stay and be your lovin' man But...
"On the other hand" - Randy Travis. (Live).
