I Can't Believe Myself Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

It's a way of mine to say just what I'm thinking
And to do the things I really want to do
And you want to change the part of me I'm proud of
So I can't be myself when I'm with you
Oh you never liked the clothes I wear on Sunday
Just because I don't believe the way you do
But I believe the Lord knows I'm unhappy cause I can't be myself when I'm with you
I can't be myself and be what pleases you
And down deep inside I don't believe that you want me to
And it's not my way to take so long deciding that I can't be myself when I'm with you
I can't be myself and be what pleases you...
No I can't be myself when I'm with you
