    Lyrics

    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

    Now I'm not braggin' or complainin'
    I'm just talkin' to myself man to man
    This ol' mental fat I'm chewin' didn't take a lotta 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 looking for my daddy's name in every town

    And I meet lots of friendly people
    But I'll always line up leavin' on the lam
    Hey where I've been or where I'm goin'
    Didn't take a lotta knowin'

    But I take a lot of pride in what I am I never travel in a hurry
    'Cause I've 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've never been nobody's idol but at least I got a title
    And I take a lot of pride in what I am

    I've 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
