When My Blue Moon
Turns to Gold Lyrics

Merle Haggard duet with Janie Fricke.

Merle Haggard When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold Lyrics

When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold lyrics was written by Wiley Walker and Gene Sullivan in 1940.

The song was the B-side on Merle's 1977 #2 hit Ramblin' Fever.

I first heard this song by Elvis in the fifties.

It was released on a 45rpm EP (extended play 45) with two songs on each side.

I personally have four copies of that 45rpm record.

Nearly sixty years later Merle Haggard sings this song live in concert at the worlds largest honky-tonk, Billy Bobs in Fort Worth, Texas.

Merle and Janie Fricke - Country harmony at its best.

The entrance of the talented Janie Fricke singing back-up on this number was a welcome bonus for me on this song.

Merle's smooth voice with Janie singing back-up produced one of the best version's I have ever heard on this tune.

Merle and Janie did have a #1 duet back in 1984 on the first single that Haggard and Fricke worked together on titled "A Place to Fall Apart."      

Watch this really nice video of the live performance.  Pay close attention to Janie as she is obviously enjoying this wonderful song with Merle. Her voice blends perfectly.

Where has all the good country music gone?

Enjoy...


When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold Lyrics
Written by Wiley Walker and Gene Sullivan
Recorded by Merle Haggard in 1977
B-side of #2 hit Ramblin' Fever

When my blue moon turns to gold again
When the rainbow turns the clouds away

Then Someday they'll live again sweetheart
When my blue moon turns to gold again

Memories that linger in my heart
Memories that makes my heart grow cold

Then some day they'll live again sweetheart
And my blue moon again will turn to gold

When my blue moon turns to gold again
When my rainbow turns the clouds away

When my blue moon turns to gold again
You'll be back within my arms to stay

You'll be back within my arms to stay
