I'm A White Boy Lyrics - Merle Haggard

Some folks call me a ramblin' man 

I do a lot of thumbin' and kickin' cans 

And it wouldn't do an ounce of good to call me names 

'cause daddy's name wasn't Willy Woodrow 

And I wasn't born and raised in no ghetto 

Just a white boy lookin' for a place to do my thing 

 

Well I'm out to find me a wealthy woman 

And a line of work that don't take no diploma 

I ain't got much to lose, but got a lot to gain 

Well some might call me a good time fella 

I ain't black and I ain't yella 

Just a white boy lookin' for a place to do my thing 

 

Yeah I don't want no handout livin' 

And don't want a part of anything they're givin' 

I'm proud and white and I got a song to sing 

 

Well I've said a few things and I'll admit it 

If you wanna get ahead you gotta hump and get it 

I'm a white boy lookin' for a place to do my thing 

Hump and get it now 

 

Well I'm a small town boy been around a little 

I like guitars andd I like a fiddle 

And that's the kind of soul it takes to fan my flames 

Well I'm a blue eyed Billy kinda frail and ruddy 

So I'll have to work to be somebody 

I'm a white boy lookin' for a place to do my thing 

 

I don't want no handout livin' 

And don't want a part of anything they're givin' 

I'm proud and white and I got a song to sing 

Well I've said a few things and I'll admit it 

If you wanna get ahead you gotta hump and get it 

I'm a white boy lookin' for a place to do my thing 

I'm a white boy lookin' for a place to do my thing
