Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Star Lyrics

Merle's #1 song includes live performance.

Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Star at All About Vinyl Records.com

The Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Star Lyrics was written by Merle Haggard with Freddie Powers. 

It was the first song released off the album "Chill Factor" and quickly became a #1 song.

The song would spend fifteen weeks on the country charts.

This live performance was in 1996 at Church Street Station in Orlando, Florida. 

It's a great tune and even better live performance.

As you watch the video understand why I believe Merle is one of the chosen  few great voices in country music. Powers must have helped write this line for Merle.

"Can you really make a wish come true?  Do you shine on just a chosen few?"

Was Merle his favorite also?

When the good Lord was passing out true country voices did he grab Merle and place him at the front of the line?

I believe Merle Haggard is the single most influential singer-songwriter in country music history and may be the most well-rounded country talent to ever take the stage. 

Enjoy this live performance and please take time to listen to all of Merle's other songs on this site. 


Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Star Lyrics
Written by Merle Haggard with Freddie Powers
#1 song recorded in 1987    


Twinkle, twinkle lucky star
Can you send me luck from where you are

Can you make a rainbow shine that far
Twinkle, twinkle lucky star

Can you really make a wish come true
Do you shine on just a chosen few

Is it over? Have I gone to far
Twinkle, twinkle lucky star

Like two ships on the ocean, we drifted apart
And you found an island at sea..

Now I'm still driftin' with this pain in my heart
Won't you send her sweet love back to me?

Twinkle, twinkle lucky star
Can you send me luck from where you are

Can you make a rainbow shine that far
Twinkle, twinkle lucky star.

Like two ships on the ocean, we drifted apart
And you found an island at sea

Now I'm still driftin' with this pain in my heart
Won't you send her sweet love back to me

Twinkle, twinkle lucky star
Can you send me luck from where you are

Can you make a rainbow shine that far
Twinkle, twinkle lucky star
