Hi
I'm trying to find the lyrics to this song "I HAD A LITTLE GAL"sung by Merle HAGGARD on two live shows
1 - BONNAROO MANCHESTER TN June 14, 2009
2- 20th FINGERLAKES GRASSROOTS FESTIVAL OF MUSIC AND DANCE TRUMANSBURG NY July 22, 2010

The melody is the same as "THIS MORNIN' THIS EVENIN' SO SOON" but not the words
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you so much

There's a YouTube video here (click), if somebody has the time and the "ear" to transcribe it. It's tough to understand.
While it uses "this morning, this evenin', so soon" at the end of each verse, the tune is more like "Fishin' Blues" (You get a line and I'll get a pole, honey)

Thank you for replying
The YOUTUBE video you told about comes from the 20th Fingerlakes Grassroots Festival and words are very hard to understand.
Hope somebody will have time to hear and transcribe the words

Merle did a version of "I HAD A LITTLE MULE) in 1971 with Johnny GIMBLE
And another in 1977 in an album called "LEGENDARY PERFORER" but the song was called "THIS MORNIN' THIS EVENIN' SO SOON"
SAme melody but different words

You told about "FISHIN' BLUES" but I know this song by the name of "THE CRAWFISH HOLE"
