The Way I Am by Merle Haggard written by Sonny Throckmorton C
F Wish I was down on some blue bayou
G7 With a bamboo cane stuck in the sand C
F But the road I'm on don't seem to go there
C So I Just dream keep on being the way I am
F Wish I enjoyed what makes my living
G7 Did what I do with a willing hand
F Some would run but that ain't like me
C I just dream and keep on being the way I am
C The way I am don't fit my shackles G7 C The way I am reality
F I can almost see that bobber dancing
C But I just dream keep on being the way I am Repeat #3 Tag: F
C I just dream keep on being the way I am
