"I Am" as written by and Pat/hotchkiss Monahan....
I never been on a railroad, as many times as they pass me by
I never crashed in the desert or seen a rodeo
I don't know much about the world wars or Vietnam
I've yet to read about Uncle Tom
Never climbed a real rock or seen Colorado
Am I the son I think I am
Am I the friend I think I am
Am I the man I think I wanna be hey
I never had a day where money didn't get in my way
I never listened to much Elvis
I can't remember a warm December
Am I the son I think I am
Am I the friend I think I am
Am I the man I think I wanna be hey
'Cause I'm here for my sanity sanity
I am here for you
I'm here for your fantasy sanity, I am here
I am
Am I the son I think I am
Am I the friend I think I am
Am I the man I think I wanna be
'Cause I'm here for my sanity sanity I am here for you
Whether or not I'm walkin' in
Whether or not I'm walkin' out
I'm always here for you

    General CommentHe's spent all his life making dreams, but is just now realizing how short life really is. As he's allready well-into his life, he realizes just how much time he's spent dreaming about the man he'd like to be. He's always thought of himself by the things he wants to do, rather than the things he's done.

    General CommentUncle Tom is a book written around the time of the civil war, it is about the daily life of a black slave at that time, the book showed how slaves in the south really lived and educated the north who would then try to free them by using the underground railroad, we learned about that in our U.S. History class and when i first heard my teacher say Uncle Tom i first thought of this song

    and i completely agree with you bizzysignal

    Thanks Mr. Pawluk
