Biography

Apart from her solo career, singer Bonnie Owens is well known for the work she did with her former husbands, Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. Born Bonnie Campbell on October 1, 1932, in Oklahoma City to a pair of sharecroppers and one of eight children, she first met Buck in the mid-'40s when he had a local daily 15-minute radio show. Once Buck discovered that Bonnie could sing, he helped her get a job with him on another radio show in 1947. The following January, Buck and Bonnie married, but the union was short-lived. By 1951, after giving birth to two sons, the marriage was over. Since neither could afford a divorce, they stayed legally married, but separated, for several years. Bonnie and the two boys left for Bakersfield, where she worked as a cocktail waitress. It was during this period that Bonnie met Fuzzy Owen and guitarist Roy Nichols, who would be instrumental in the career of Haggard.

    Lyrics
    I turn on my radio each morning around nine
    To hear the man announcing it's country music time
    He plays the record hits to fit most every girl and guy
    Then he plays a song and it's my hi-fi to cry by
    I wonder how the man who wrote this song knew the same

    Lyrics
    Oh you're the number one heel in the country
    You're the top of the list it's plain to see
    And I'm the number one fool that still loves you
    Yes you'll always be number one with me
    I gave you my love with no reservation your every wish with my every command

    Lyrics
    All of me belongs to you all the time you're the only one that's ever on my mind
    There's no way that I could ever be untrue
    There's not one single part of me that don't miss you through and through
    All of me belongs to you
    Eyes are worthless if you're not here to see

    Lyrics
    Who cares for fame or fortune
    Who cares for wealth or gold
    Because I find a fortune
    Within my arms I hold
    A tiny turned up nose
