I thought the Cowpie would have the lyrics for all three songs, but I found only one. Click here for Sam Hill.
The others will show up soon, I'm sure.

CAROLYN
Singer: Merle Haggard
Writer: Tommy Collins

Carolyn, let me tell you what I heard about a man today
He didn't come home from work and he went away
Till he came to a city, bright in the nightime, like day
There they say he met up with
Some women dressed in yellow and scarlet
Their warm lips, like a honeycomb, dripped with honey
And somethin' about the smell of strange perfume
Made him feel warm and not alone.

Yes, Carolyn, a man will do that
Sometimes on his own and sometimes when he's lonely
I believe a man might do that, Sometimes out of spite
But Carolyn, a man will do that always
When he's treated bad at home.

Yes, Carolyn, a man will do that Sometimes on his own and sometimes when he's lonely
And I believe a man might do that sometimes out of spite
But, Carolyn, a man will do that always
When he's treated bad at home.

Tulare Dust
Merle Haggard 1971

Tulare dust in a farm boy's nose
Wondering where the freight train goes
Standing in a field by the railroad track
Cursing the strap on my cotton sack

I can see Mom and Dad, with shoulders low
Both of 'em picking on a double row
They do it for a living because they must
That's life like it is in the Tulare dust

The California sun was something new
That winter we arrived in forty two
And I can still remember how my Daddy cussed
The tumbleweeds here in the Tulare dust

The valley fever was a common fate
To the farmworkers here in the Golden State
And I miss Oklahoma but I'll stay if I must
And help make a livin' in the Tulare dust

The Tulare dust in a farm boy's nose
Wondering where the freight train goes
Standing in a cotton field by the railroad track
Cursing this strap on my cotton sack

I see Mom and Dad, with...(fade)

Thanks. It's one of our oldest threads which were missing lyrics. Since Joe's link isn't working any more, I thought I'd look up Sam Hill from Merle Haggard. Didn't find out if he wrote it or not...

From Sam Hill

Sam Hill
performed by Merle Haggard

There's a certain hill outside of town called Sam Hill
And a certain guy used to go there every day
They said a certain girl lived up in Sam Hill
Aw, a pretty girl, not hep to city ways
 
This certain guy would come down the hill a smilin'
Headed back to town at the crack of dawn
And he had 'em all a wonderin' what he was doin'
Yeah, wonderin' what in Sam Hill's goin' on
 
We knew this certain guy was not a goldminer
Cause he never took a shovel or a pick
He only took a little box of candy
And disappeared in Sam Hill mighty quick
 
We tried to follow him to his destination
But he had a secret path and soon he was gone
And he had us all a wonderin' what he was doin'
Yeah, wonderin' what in Sam Hill's goin' on
 
I know that you have wondered too about Sam Hill
You've probably asked "What in Sam Hill's goin' on?"
All I can say in answer to your question
Is the goin's on are still goin' on
 
This certain guy's still takin' up his candy
He's 99 and all his youth is gone
But he climbs that hill and still comes down a smilin'
And we're wonderin' what in Sam Hill's goin' on
Wish I knew
What in Sam Hill's goin' on
 
He won't tell us'
What in Sam Hill's goin' on
He just snickers
What in Sam Hill's goin' on

Merle recorded many Tommy Collins tunes and T C did indeed write
a song called SAM HILL and chances are this was it...
