I Take a Lot of Pride in What I Am

This song is by Clint Black and appears on the compilation Mama's Hungry Eyes: A Tribute to Merle Haggard (1994).

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

I guess I grew up a loner
I don't remember having any folks around
But I keep thumbing through the phone book
And looking for my daddy's name in every town
And I meet lots of friendly people
That I always end up leaving on the lam
Where I've been and where I'm going
Didn't take a lot of knowing
But I take a lot of pride in what I am

I never travel in a hurry
'Cause I've got nobody waiting for me anywhere
Home is anywhere I'm living
If it's sleeping on some vacant bench in City Square
Or if I'm working on some road gang
Or just living off the fat of our great land
I never been nobody's idol
But at least I've got a title
And I take a lot of pride in what I am

Never been nobody's idol
But at least I've got a title
And I take a lot of pride in what I am

I take a lot of pride in what I am

I take a lot of pride in what I am
