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