Outlaws Like Me

Album: Outlaws Like Me (2011)
  • I've been a rough houser, a good time sleep arounder
    A straight up whiskey pounder, till I don't know my name
    I've been a church goer, a front pew bible holder
    I cry on my momma's shoulder when she saw me change
    But each day's a choice, which one I'm gonna be
    God bless outlaws like me

    I curse the sun, I pray for rain
    I've run a mile to walk through pain
    I've seen the worst and I've seen the best that I could be
    God bless outlaws like me

    I've been an SOB'er, a nighttime ballroom leaner
    A go back and forth betweener, and that's the truth
    And I've been a come home early, get to my girl in a hurry
    At night, so she didn't worry, I even said I love you
    But each day's days a choice, to love her or livin' free
    God bless outlaws like me

    I curse the sun, I pray for rain
    I've run a mile to walk through pain
    I've seen the worst and I've seen the best that I could be
    God bless outlaws like me, ah ah hey

    I curse the sun, I pray for rain
    I've run a mile to walk through pain
    I've seen the worst and I've seen the best man I can be
    God bless outlaws, God bless outlaws
    God bless outlaws like me, yeah yeah oh oh oh, oh oh Writer/s: Jeremy Stover, Justin Moore
