I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am - Merle Haggard

        C       C/B     C/A     C/G
        C       C/B     C/A     C/G

Verse 1:

         Dm
Things I learned in a hobo jungle
        Dm             G              C C/B     C/A     C/G
Were things they never taught me in a classroom                          
     Dm
Like where to find a handout
      Dm              G              C  C/B     C/A     C/G
While bummin' through Chicago in the afternoon.                          
C
Hey, I'm not braggin' nor complainin',
                                  F     F/E     F/D
I'm just talkin' to myself man to man.           
          Dm             G              Dm            G
This ole' mental fat I'm chewin' didn't take a lot of doin'.
      Dm            G               C   C/B     C/A     C/G
But I take a lot of pride in what I am.                                  


Verse 2:

          Dm
I guess I grew up a loner, 
        Dm            G          C      C/B     C/A     C/G
I don't remember ever havin' any folks around.
           Dm
But I keep thumbin' through the phone books,
    Dm             G               C    C/B     C/A     C/G
And lookin' for my daddy's name in every town.
      C
And I meet lots of friendly people, 
                                    F   F/E     F/D
but I always wind up leavin' on the lam.
          Dm             G              Dm            G
Hey, where I've been or where I'm goin' didn't take alot of knowin',
      Dm            G                    C      C/B     C/A     C/G
But I take a lot of pride in what I am.


Verse 3:

        Dm
I never travel in a hurry, 
         Dm         G                    C      C/B     C/A     C/G
'Cause I got nobody waitin' for me anywhere.
        Dm
Home is anywhere I'm livin',
        Dm               G               C      C/B     C/A     C/G
If it's sleepin' on some vacant bench in City Square,
          C
Or if I'm workin' on some road gang,
                                        F       F/E     F/D
Or just livin' off the fat of our great land.
        Dm            G            Dm            G
I never been nobody's idol, But at least I got a title,
      Dm            G               C   C/B     C/A     C/G
And I take a lot Of pride in what I am.

        Dm            G            Dm            G
I never been nobody's idol, But at least I got a title,
      Dm            G               C   C/B     C/A     C/G
And I take a lot Of pride in what I am.

  Dm            G               C       C/B     C/A     C/G
I take a lot of pride in what I am.

  Dm            G               C       C/B     C/A     C/G
I take a lot of pride in what I am.
