i can’t be myself lyrics – hank williams jr.

it’s the way of mine to say just what i’m thinking
and to do the things i really want to do
and you want to change the part of me i’m proud of
so i can’t be myself when i’m with you

oh, you never like the clothes i wear on sunday
just because i don’t believe the way you do
but i believe the lord knows i’m unhappy
’cause i can’t be myself when i’m with you

no i can’t be myself and be what pleases you
and down deep inside i don’t believe that you want me to
and it’s not my way to take so long deciding
that i can’t be myself when i’m with you, no it’s not my way

/ hank williams jr lyrics
