I TAKE A LOT OF PRIDE IN WHAT I AM (Merle Haggard) Merle Haggard - 1969 Dean Martin - 1969 The Stonemans - 1970 Henson Cargill - 1972 Clint Black - 1994 Also recorded by: Charlie Cushman; Chris Fyfe; Dale Watson; Jack Greene. Things I learned in the 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 old mental fat I'm chewin' didn't take a lot o' doin' But I take a lot of pride in what I am I guess I grew up a loner Don't remember ever havin' any folks around But I keep thumbin' through the phone books And lookin' for my Daddy's name in ev'ry town And I meet lots of people But I always wind up leavin' on the lam Hey, where I've been or where I'm going didn't take a lot o' knowin' But I take a lot of pride in what I am I never travel in a hurry 'Cause 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 working 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 This old mental fat I'm chewin' didn't take a lot o' doin' And I take a lot of pride in what I am Oh, where I've been or where I'm going didn't take a lot o' knowin' But I take a lot of pride in what I am (Contributed by Mel - February 2010)
