I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am
Recorded by Merle Haggard

Am
Things I learned in hobo jungle
D7 G
Were things they never taught me in a class room
Am
Like where to find a hand out
D7 G
While bumming through Chicago in the afternoon


Hey I'm not bragging or complaining
C
I'm just talking to myself man to man
Am D7 Am D7
This ole mental fat I'm chewing didn't take a lotta doing
Am D7 G
But I take a lot of pride in what I am

Am
I guess I grew up a loner
D7 G
I don't remember ever having any folks around
Am
But I keep thumbing through the phone books
D7 G
And looking for my daddy's name in every town


And I meet lots of friendly people
C
That I always wind up leaving on the lam
Am D7 Am D7
Hey where I've been or where I'm going didn't take a lotta knowing
Am D7 G
But I take a lot of pride in what I am

Am
I never travel in a hurry
D7 G
Because I got nobody waiting for me anywhere
Am
Home is anywhere I'm living
D7 G
If it's sleeping on some vacant bench in City Square


Or if I'm working on some road gang
C
Or just living off the fat of our great land
Am D7 Am D7
I never been nobody's idol but at least I got a title
Am D7 G
And I take a lot of pride in what I am


Am D7 Am D7
I never been nobody's idol but at least I got a title
Am D7 G
And I take a lot of pride in what I am
