​Being Me

This song is by The Grascals and appears on the album Long List of Heartaches (2006).

Mama loved the Bible, daddy loved the bars
So both of them reliable, perhaps the way I are
Got a little devil and an angel around me, lordy dee
Well, okay well I admit it, the only thing
I'm really good at's being me, lordy dee

I'm a semi educated, honky tonkin' fool
Jack Bean's sedated, rated redneck, kinda cool
My hero is a country poet, who never even heard of me, lordy dee
Well, okay wellI admit it, the only thing
I'm really good at's being me, lordy dee

Tried to be a husband, tried to play it straight
In three weeks she'd changed her mind that we should procreate
Tried to work a day job, I gave up my guitar
And we both started bookin' me back in the music bars
Well, okay well I admit it, the only thing
I'm really good at's being me, lordy dee

I got a bunch of serpents underneath my clothes
That's where all those classy girls touched you, a ten feet pole
Got a little devil and an angel around me, lordy dee
Well, okay well I admit it, the only thing
I'm really good at is being me, lordy dee

Tried to be a husband, tried to play it straight
In three weeks she'd changed her mind that we should procreate
Tried to work a day job, I gave up my guitar
And we both started bookin' me back in the music bars
Well, okay well I admit it, the only thing
I'm really good at's being me, lordy dee

Well, okay I admit it, the only thing
I'm really good at's being me, lordy dee
Oh, lordy dee

Lordy dee
Lordy dee
