Shooter Jennings The Outsider Lyrics

Times are changing you bet

Seems the older I get

The less I seem to fit

In a young person’s world!

And the higher I climb,

The more I see design

How they keep us all confined

Rubbing oyster of their pearls!

[Chorus:]

And I am the outsider

A horse with no rider

I am the fighter

When the darkest day is done!

And I am the survivor

Not lay down and die-er

Long distance driver

And I will overcome!

My daddy he picked cotton

Not a day was misbegotten

But everyone’s forgotten

About his climb to the pearly gates.

And next to him I had an easy road

But I have my own heavy load

A bitter kiss has been bestowed

Upon the son of a rebel saint

[Chorus:]

And I am the outsider

A horse with no rider

I am a fighter

When the darkest day is done!

And I am the survivor

Not laying down and die-er

A long distance driver

And I will overcome!

Yes I will!

Every human has a right

To form a union, rise up and fight

From six minutes to midnight

With an old flowing cup…

For every child born a bastard

For every momma’s life that’s past her

For every inside job disaster

We ain’t giving up!

[Chorus:]

And I am the outsider

A horse with no rider

Shelter provider

When the judgement day has come!

And I am the survivor

Not lay down and die-er

Ain’t no [?] can fighter…

And I am only one
