I am what I am and I am strong 
Cause I got my land and I got my song 
I am what I am and I am belong 
Cause I got my land and I got my song 
Harmonica Bridge: ( 
Tell you a story, about a girl named Kimberly 
Who all the cowboys wanted cause she was wild and free 
But now theres fussing and theres fighting We all taking sides 
While the cowboys are playing their old games of conquer and divide. You see 
Kimberly was special, a rare and wild soul 
Nearly every man who met her, their hearts she always stole 
But there are always those exceptions of the cold and callous kind 
That wanted just her body and leave the mess for us behind 
Now the prince of the cowboys, his name was Barnett 
He wanted to leave his mark, you know, so we did not forget 
So he said "Mine mine mine, all for me" 
It's great to be a cowboy in the wild west roaming free 
So he brandished all his bullets he put a gun right to our head 
He said "I'm giving you all a choice now, you're either with me or your dead 
You know I got to have this kim, I cant get her off my mind 
And I aint gonna stop until shes mine, mine" 
Where do i stand? 
Got this hole in my heart and a line drawn in the 
sand. It's all gray. 
There are no black and whites so who am I to say 
I am what I am and I am strong 
Cause I got my land and I got my song 
I am what I am and I am belong 
Cause I got my land and I got my song

Now its come to a showdown and its all push and pull 
Got these lawyers having field day while the cowboys are funding schools 
I guess it boils down to how you see it, do you see Kimberly, 
Or just another god damn hole in the ground just another opportunity? 
Where do i stand? 
Got this hole in my heart and a line drawn in the 
sand. It's all gray. 
There are no black and whites so who am I to say 
You are wrong 
but you never know what you got until its gone 
And one day 
the little people will ask what you did and what we said 
I am what I am and I am strong 
Cause I got my land and I got my song 
I am what I am and I am belong 
Cause I got my land and I got my song 
I am what I am and I am strong 
Cause I got my land and I got my song 
I am what I am and I am belong 
Cause I got my land and I got my song
