Sinner

I've never been a winner but I wonder if I wasn't myself  
Because I've always been a sinner but I never really felt like my own self  
I remember days of infamy  
I remember my friends and they remember me  
And I guess I need a vision cause I never really listen to advice

Well I guess I need a vision cause I never really listen to advice  
My father was a preacher and my mother was a diligent wife.  
I grew up with the choir singin',   
I grew up straight but I raised up swingin'  
By my own estimation, I'm a drifter destination unknown.   

{Chorus}
And it's all I can do to stand up.   
I'm really tired, but I raise my head and I step up   

{repeat 2x}    

By my own estimation, I'm a drifter destination unknown.  
And I've never lived a life that I'm ashamed of being my own.  
Call it sin, call it salvation.  
Whichever one it is I know I've found elation.  
High steppin' honey like a runnin' gun runnin' from the law, and that’s all    

Well I am high steppin' honey like a runnin' gun runnin' from the law.
And I've never been afraid of anyone or anything I ever saw.  
A fist came up and it cracked my smile  
Then a man went down and now he's sleepin' for a while.  
He's got a dirt bed baby only baby he ain't never gettin' up     

{Chorus}    

He's got a dirt bed baby only baby he ain't never gettin' up, no
I had a dog named Moses, Moses was a diamond in the rough.  
For 14 years he walked my side   
Walked this world that's where he lived and died.  
He was meaner than hell but he loved me well indeed

Well I've never been a winner but I wonder if I wasn't myself
Because I've always been a sinner but I never really felt like my own self  
Call it sin, call it salvation  
Whichever one it is, I know I've found elation
High steppin' honey like a runnin' gun runnin' from the law - that's all.
