The Way I Am Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

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 bein' the way I am

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

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

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

I just dream, keep on bein' the way I am
