where have i been
and where am i go'in
guess there's no way a knowin'

but, i am growin'

that's that's the ? i give to me

who i am?
who do i be?
who do i see
in me?

the ? is
what it 'tis
the ?
is what it is.

i know where i been
i know where i be
but do i see
when it's time for a change
the me
that i've been
forgive my-Self for my past sin

do where do i go
how do i grow
when will i know
just go with the flow
an old car just in tow
an old car
that just won't go

where will i be
when i be me
when will i finally see
just who i be?

will i ever know
will i ever grow
will it ever show?

will the wind ever blow
in my direction
will life ever begin'
in this direction

will i ever forget
what i forgot
maybe not
but yet
place your bet
you alway's get
what you get

but the wind does blow
don't you know
from the south, the east, the north or the west
so i just do our best

to be me
to see me
just who i am
God damn

i am who i am
i ain't who i ain't
i ain't no saint

i am
who i am
who i be
i just be me

an old oak tree
or maybe a mesquite

a weepi'n willa'

from the day i was born
i had a thorn
'till the day i die
wonderin' why?

i'm always
wonderin' aways
goin' my
my own ways

i be me
who i am
God damn

i be a tree
full of leaves

i be that tree
that you see
by side of the road
carryin' it's own load

i be a flower
who hour after hour
just live's for today
anyway...then it goes' it's own way

i be who i am
my names not sam
it's steve

a flower or a tree
i be
just me
that's steve
