This week Jim Adams has prompted us with choosing songs pertaining to Begin | End | Finish | Start for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday. This week I pay homage to the late great Merle Haggard with “Today, I Started Loving You Again”.
I’ve written about Merle Haggard and Bonnie Owens in a past blog. Merle and Bonnie were married at the time this song was released in 1968 and they wrote several songs together. She was the ex-wife to Country Music legend Buck Owens and Merle’s 2nd wife. Here is a link to more on them from a post back in August.
No artist has ever written with conviction as Merle Haggard. His songs project his feelings at the time they were written. The lyrics to “Today, I Started Loving You Again” was written as a love at first site type of ballad. The words penned show a greater emotional turmoil of a broken heart.
Listen carefully and you will feel the pedal steel guitar and all the soul it brings into this song. Wait for it! There is just nothing more country than that instrument…well, maybe a fiddle.
Today I started loving you again I'm right back where I've really always been I got over you just long enough to let my heartache mend Then today, I started loving you again What a fool I was to think I could get by With only these few millions tears I cry I should have known the worst was yet to come And that crying time for me had just begun Cause today I started loving you again I'm right back where I've really always been I got over you just long enough to let my heartache mend Then today I started loving you again Well today I started loving you again I'm right back where I've really always been I got over you just long enough to let my heartache mend Then today I started loving you again Then today I started loving you again Source: Musixmatch Songwriters: Merle Haggard / Bonnie Owens Today I Started Loving You Again lyrics © Sony/atv Tree Publishing, Sony Atv Tree Publishing, Sony Atv Music Publishing France
