Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am.
Merle Haggard.
Album: Pride In What I Am.

Intro: Cmaj7 Am7 Cmaj7 Am7 C

         Dm
Things I learned in a hobo jungle,
Dm                            G7       Cmaj7   C6
Were things they never taught me in a classroom,
     Dm
Like where to find a handout,
Dm                     G              C
While thumbing through Chicago in the afternoon,
C
Hey, I'm not bragging or complaining,
C                             F6 Am Dm7
Just talking to myself man to man,
Dm7                     G7             Dm            G7
This old mental fat I'm chewing didn't take a lot of doing.
      Dm                           Cmaj7 C6
But I take a lot of pride in what I am.

          Dm
I guess I grew up a loner, 
                      G6     Cmaj7           C6
I don't remember ever having any folks around.
           Dm
But I keep thumbing through the phone books,
                   Cmaj7                     C6
And looking for my daddy's name in every town,
C6           
And I meet lots of friendly people, 
                                    Dm  Am Dm7
That I always end up leaving on the lam,
                                 G7
Hey where I've been or where I'm going, 
       Dm            G7
Didn't take a lot of knowing,
      Dm                           Cmaj7 C6
But I take a lot of pride in what I am.

        Dm
I never travel in a hurry, 
                   G6          C           C6
Cause I got nobody waiting for me anywhere,
        Dm
Home is anywhere I'm living,
                                G7            Cmaj7  C6
If it's sleeping on some vacant bench in City Square,
          Cmaj7
Or if I'm working on some road gang, 
Cmaj7                                   F6  Am Dm7
Or just living off the fat of our great land,
                      G7           Dm            G7
I never been nobody's idol, but at least I got a title,
      Dm                           Cmaj7 C6
And I take a lot of pride in what I am.

        Dm7           G7           Dm            G7
I never been nobody's idol, but at least I got a title,
      Dm            G7              Cmaj7 C6
And I take a lot of pride in what I am,
  Dm            G7              Cmaj7
I take a lot of pride in what I am,
  Dm7           G6              Cmaj7 C6 C
I take a lot of pride in what I am...
