Lyrics

Winner

Been ridin’ this lonesome highway
Not so long at all
Trying hard not to think about
The many ways there are to fall
Been kicked around a lot, you know
But not enough to have the blues
I’m wondering how long it will take
‘Til I’ve paid all those dues
By all accounts I guess you’d say I’m still just a beginner
But, by golly, my momma said I was a winner

I drink and cuss and smoke and sex
Gamble, steal and all the rest, it’s so
Sometimes you’ll do anything to keep from finding the straight and narrow
But living hard and dying fast is never in the plan
I just take what I can get, and try to do the best I can
Might wind up in Topeka, and have to turn tricks for my dinner
But, by golly, my momma said I was a winner

If I confessed online to Benny, he’d call me a virtual sinner
But, by golly, my momma said I was a winner
