Merle Haggard – Nobody's Darlin' But Mine lyrics

Come lay by my side little darlin'
Come lay your cool hand on my brow
Promise me that you will always
Be nobody's darlin' but mine

You're as sweet as the flowers of springtime
You're as pure as the dew from the rose
And I'd rather be somebody's darlin'
Than a poor boy that nobody knows

Be nobody's darlin' but mine love
Be honest be faithful be kind
And promise me that you will always
Be nobody's darlin' but mine

Goodbye little darlin' I'm leaving
I'm leaving this cold world behind
So promise me that you will never
Be nobody's darlin' but mine
