The Way I Am

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, ah, 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…

**********

Wish I were 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 and keep on being the way I am.

Wish I enjoyed what makes my living,

Did what I do with willing hands.

Some would run, oh but that ain’t like me,

So I just dream and keep on being the way I am.

The way I am, don’t fit my shackles,

The way I am, reality.

I can almost see that bobber dancing,

So I just dream and keep on being the way I am.

The way I am, don’t fit my shackles,

The way I am, reality.

I can almost see that bobber dancing,

So I just dream and keep on being the way I am.

I just dream and keep on being the way I am.

Yodelaaaeeeeey, Yodel Oh del ayeeeeeee (to fade)
