If We Make It Through December

December 29, 2020

“If We Make It Through December” written and recorded by Merle Haggard, 1973. Johnny Gimble on fiddle, Bobby Wayne on lead guitar.

“I got laid off down at the factory
And their timing’s not the greatest in the world
Heaven knows I been workin’ hard
I wanted Christmas to be right for daddy’s girl
Now I don’t mean to hate December
It’s meant to be the happy time of year
And why my little girl don’t understand
Why daddy can’t afford no Christmas here.”
