Montego Bay

This song is by Merle Haggard and appears on the album A Portrait Of Merle Haggard (1969).

I showed her most of Tennessee that's all I could afford
I even thought of stealing so I could show her more
But she never did seem happy and I often heard her say
Hey, I like it here but I love Montego Bay

Oh, I should have gone with her at least I would know
What about Montego Bay that makes its pull so strong
All I've got's old mem'ries of the way she used to say
Hey, I like it here but I love Montego Bay

Why couldn't I convince her, why couldn't I make her see
There's no way Montego Bay needs her more than me
When she left she seemed so happy, I can still hear her say
Hey, I like it here but I love Montego Bay

Why couldn't I convince her, why couldn't I make her see
There's no way Montego Bay needs her more than me
When she left she seemed so happy, I can still hear her say
Hey, I like it here but I love Montego Bay
