Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Things I learned in a hoboe jungle
Were things they never taught me in a classroom

Left allemande that corner, run home a dosado, and the men star left
Turn the partner right, left allemande that corner
Swing your own and promenade
It didn't take a lot of doin' (knowin')
But I take lot of pride in what I am


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru, dosado
Touch 1/4, scoot back
Cast off 3/4, boys trade, boys run
Ferris wheel, centers pass thru
Swing the corner, promenade
It didn't take a lot of doin' (knowin')
But I take lot of pride in what I am


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I grew up a loner
Don't remember havin' any folks around


*I keep thumbin' through the phone books
Lookin' for my daddy's name in every town

I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am
 
 

Things I learned in a hobo jungle
Were things they never taught me in a classroom
Like where to find a handout
While thumbin' through Chicago in the afternoon

Hey, I'm not braggin' or complainin'
Just talkin' to myself man to man
This ole' 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 phone books
And lookin' for my daddy's name in every town

And I meet lots of friendly people
But I'll always end up leavin' on the lam
Where I've been or where I'm 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
'Cause 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

Lyrics by Merle Haggard.
