***********************************************************************


F#    B    F#   B   Db
INTRO


Verse 1
--------

            F#                E  B
Wish I were down on some blue bayou,
              F#                Db
With a bamboo cane stuck in the sand.
                 F#                E  B
But the road I'm on, don't seem to go there,
          F#                Db              F#
So I just dream and keep on being the way I am.


Verse 2
--------
 
         F#                  E  B
Wish I enjoyed what makes my living,
           F#              Db
Did what I do with willing hands.
           F#                     E    B
Some would run, oh but that ain't like me,
          F#                Db              F#   F#7
So I just dream and keep on being the way I am.


Chorus
-------

          B                F#
The way I am, don't fit my shackles,
          Db       F#
The way I am, reality.
                             E   B
I can almost see that bobber dancing,
          F#                Db              F#
So I just dream and keep on being the way I am.



F#   B   F#  Db   F#  F#7
INSTRUMENTAL



*Repeat Chorus*


       F#                Db           F#       B   
I just dream and keep on being the way   I am.

     F#         B              F#       B
Yodelaaaeeeeey,   Yodel Oh del ayeeeeeee   (to fade)
