William Clark Green - What It Takes To Be Me Lyrics




I bet you thought I was a better man
Now you know the truth
I been out singin' the songs
About the wrong I done
Guess it finally got through to you

She left her stain on the linens
I really thought you would never tell
No, I don't expect to be forgiven
'Cause I'm so wrapped up in myself

And I deserve everything for all the work I done
Even if I lose everybody that I ever loved
They just don't understand
What it takes to be me
And I don't know who they are
But I will prove 'em wrong
Probably my friends
I'm suspicious of everyone
I would give anything just for them to see
What it takes to be me

I don't know who I am anymore
Tell me what have I become
There is something I discovered
That attracts lots of lovers
While my wife and my kids are at home

You'd think I'd learn my lesson
Yeah, you'd think I'd stop runnin' around
Oh but every time that it happens
I tell myself that they'll never find out

And I deserve everything for all the work I done
Even if I lose everybody that I ever loved
They just don't understand
What it takes to be me
And I don't know who they are
But I will prove 'em wrong
Probably my friends
I'm suspicious of everyone
I would give anything just for them to see
What it takes to be me

And I deserve everything for all the work I done
Even if I lose everybody that I ever loved
They just don't understand
What it takes to be me
And I don't know who they are
But I will prove 'em wrong
Probably my friends
I'm suspicious of everyone
I would give anything just for them to see
What it takes to be me

To be me
Yeah
What it takes to be me

  1. bibli ography

    its a little selfish

  2. David Abbott

    good song/nice lyrics - but give the fiddle some credit too - i'm a sucker for throwing in a fiddle

    Joshua Stiles

    I'm with you. This show us taped locally, it's kinda a song swap. that might not be his fiddler. I don't catch the show each week and don't remember this one.

  3. The Bear

    I came across this song on ya'lls youtube channel. I am born and raised south Texas now living in Alberta Canada, and fighting personal demons yearning to be back home. I would LOVE to shake the hand of William Clark Green and his band. This song is deep on MANY levels. Thank You for this song.
