Lyrics to I Can't Be Myself by Merle Haggard from the The Lonesome Fugitive: The Merle Haggard Anthology (1963-1977) album - including song video, artist biography, translations and more! . Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band The Strangers helped create the Bakersfield sound, which is characterized by the unique twang of Fender Telecaster and the unique mix with the traditional country steel guitar sound, new vocal harmony styles in which the words are minimal, and a rough edge not heard on the more polished Nashville Sound recordings of the same era.
Merle Haggard - "I Can’t Be Myself". When discussing timeless Merle Haggard songs, this one doesn’t get as much attention as others in his catalog, but the vocal performance on this 1970 single stands as one of his best. About a man who feels restrained by his new relationship, this song definitely made an impact, having been covered by Vince Gill & Paul Franklin, as well as by LeAnn Rimes. 13. Merle Haggard - "The Bottle Let Me Down". A very understated performance, one aspect that made this song stand out was the great sax work by Strangers member Don Markham. 11. Merle Haggard - "Always Wanting You". The lead single from his 1973 holiday album Merle Haggard’s Christmas Present, this tender number about a man who wasn’t able to provide a bountiful Christmas for his family touched a nerve with millions of fans who ached along with every line.
The other hit was "I Can't Be Myself," a haunting admission that the singer "can't be myself when I'm with you," and it's only one of many great originals on Hag. The tempo picks up twice, each time at the end of the side, when he kicks out the self-deprecating "I'm a Good Loser" and the nostalgic rave-up "I've Done It All," but the heart of this is in the gentler material, such as the melancholic elegy of "Shelly's Winter Love," the sighing heartbreak ballad "If You've Got. Time," and "The Farmer's Daughter," an affecting tale of a father giving away his daughter in marriage. The Sidewalks of Chicago.
