I'm Not for Everyone

  • Some people clap on the one and three
    Some people clap on the two and four
    Some people don't join at all
    'Cause they got no rhythm
    And that's alright
    Some people, they drink too much
    Some people don't drink enough
    Some people are just like me
    I hope y'all forgive 'em

    I'm like scotch and zydeco bands
    I'm like B-side Townes Van Zandt
    I'm always speaking my mind
    When I'm better off biting my tongue
    I'm a bad joke at the wrong time
    Hell, I'm a legend in my own mind
    I'm good for some but I'm not for everyone

    If I was sweet tea, it'd be a bit bitter
    If you took a drink, you might reconsider
    If I was a church, I'd be hanging with the sinners
    Talking 'bout Hendrix and Heaven
    If I was a bar, I'd be a dive
    A free jukebox in a double-wide
    Neon lights saying "Come inside"
    And I'd be "Open 24/7"

    I'm like scotch and zydeco bands
    I'm like B-side Townes Van Zandt
    I'm always speaking my mind
    When I'm better off biting my tongue
    I'm a bad joke at the wrong time
    Hell, I'm a legend in my own mind
    I'm good for some but I'm not for everyone

    Yeah, I'm hard to love, it's true
    I'm a little more rough than smooth
    It's a wonder I found somebody like me, like you

    I'm like scotch and zydeco bands
    I'm like B-side Townes Van Zandt
    I'm always speaking my mind
    When I'm better off biting my tongue
    I'm a bad joke at the wrong time
    Hell, I'm a legend in my own mind
    I'm good for some but I'm not for everyone
    Yeah, I'm good for some but I'm not for everyone Writer/s: JOHN OSBORNE, LUKE DICK, NATALIE HEMBY, THOMAS OSBORNE
