I Can't Be Myself
Written and Recorded by Merle Haggard

C G7 C
It's a way of mine to say just what I'm thinking
G7 C
And to do the things I really want to do
And you want to change the part of me I'm proud of
G7 C
So I can't be myself when I'm with you

G7 C
Oh you never liked the clothes I wear on Sunday
G7 C
Just because I don't believe the way you do
But I believe the Lord knows I'm unhappy
G7 C C7
Cause I can't be myself when I'm with you

I can't be myself and be what pleases you
F C G7
And down deep inside I don't believe that you want me to
And it's not my way to take so long deciding
G7 C
That I can't be myself when I'm with you

Repeat #3
