Merle Haggard ‘That’s The Way Love Goes’ KLAW Classic [VIDEO]
What could be better for a songwriter than to have one of your songs reach the top spot on the country charts? Well, if you are Lefty Frizzell and Sanger Shafer, then you hit the jackpot with their song hitting #1 not once, but two times with two different singers.
Written originally for Johnny Rodriguez, ‘That’s The Way Love Goes’ hit #1 the first time in 1974, then once again ten years later almost to the day with our KLAW Classic artist, Merle Haggard. From 29 years ago today, here’s your classic, ‘That’s The Way Love Goes’.
Since this song hit the top spot twice, we thought we would give you a two-for-the-price-of-one deal as well. Here’s your bonus Johnny Rodriguez video from 1974.
