Merle Haggard sings an intriguing song entitled "Leonard." Does anybody know who this song is about?

bob,
great site and some valuable information. I had always assumed the Leonard Merle was singing about was Roy Rogers but could never quite make the story connect with Roy.(Leonard Sly) This was a awakining.Thanks
