Merle Haggard - I Take a Lot of Pride in What I Am (text piesne)



I TAKE A LOT OF PRIDE IN WHAT I AM
(Merle Haggard)
« © '68 Tree Publishing, BMI »

Things I learned in hobo jungle
Were things they never taught me in a class room
Like where to find a hand out
While bummin' through Chicago in the afternoon
Hey I'm not braggin' or complainin' I'm just talkin' to myself man to man
This ol' Middle fat I'm chewin' didn't take a lotta doin'
But I take a lot of pride in what I am
I guess I grew up a loner
I don't remember ever havin' any folks around
But I keep thumbin' through the phonebooks
And looking for my daddy's name in every town
And I meet lots of friendly people but I'll always wind up leavin' on the lam
Hey where I've been or where I'm goin' didn't take a lotta knowin'
But I take a lot of pride in what I am
I never travel in a hurry
Because I got nobody waitin' for me anywhere
Home is anywhere I'm livin'
If it's sleepin' on some vacant bench in City Square
Or if I'm workin' on some road gang or just livin' off the fat of our great land
I never been nobody's idol but at least I got a title
And I take a lot of pride in what I am
I never been nobody's idol...
I take a lot of pride in what I am
I take a lot of pride in what I am
