The Way I Am
Merle Haggard

The Way I Am

Wish I was down on some blue bayou
With a bamboo cane stuck in the sand
But the road I'm on don't seem to go there
So I Just dream keep on being the way I am

Wish I enjoyed what makes my living
Did what I do with a willing hand
Some would run but that ain't like me
I just dream and keep on being the way I am

The way I am don't fit my shackles
The way I am reality
I can almost see that bobber dancing
But I just dream keep on being the way I am
