Ringtones Ringtones: Send I Take a Lot of Pride in What I Am Ringtones to your Cell

(Merle Haggard)

Things I learned in hobo jungle were things they never taught me in a class room
Like where to find a hand out while bummin' through Chicago in the afternoon
Hey I'm not bragging or complaining I'm just talking to myself man to man
This old mental fat I'm chewing didn't take a lotta doing
But I take a lot of pride in what I am.

I guess I grew up a loner I don't remember ever having any folks around
But I keep thumbin' through the phone books
And looking for my daddy's name in every town
And I meet lots of people but I'll always end up leavin' on the lam
Hey where I've been or where I'm going didn't take a lotta knowing
But I take a lot of pride in what I am.

I never travel in a hurry cause I got nobody waitin' 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 got a title
And I take a lot of pride in what I am.

This old mental fat I'm chewing didn't take a lotta doing
But I take a lot of pride in what I am
Oh where I've been or where I'm going didn't take a lotta knowing
But I take a lot of pride in what I am...
