America

Things I learned in a hobo jungle were things they never taught me in a classroom,

Like where to find a handout while bummin’ through Chicago in the afternoon.

Hey, I’m not braggin’ nor complainin’, I’m just talkin’ to myself, man to man,

This ol’ mental fat I’m chewin’ didn’t take a lot of doin’,

But I take a lot of pride in what I am

I guess I grew up a loner, I don’t remember ever havin’ any folks around,

But I keep thumbin’ through the phonebooks and lookin’ for my Daddy’s name in every town.

And I meet lots of friendly people but I always wind up leavin’ on the lam,

Hey, where I’ve been or where I’m a’goin’ didn’t take a lot of knowin’,

But I take a lot of pride in what I am.

I never travel in a hurry, because I got nobody waitin’ for me anywhere,

Home is anywhere I’m livin’, if it’s sleepin’ on some vacant bench in city square.

Or if I’m workin’ on some road gang or just livin’ 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.

I never been nobody’s idol but at least I 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.
