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

    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
    And the keepers are all confined
    Robbing oysters of their pearls

    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 laying down and dying
    Long distance driver
    And I will overcome

    My daddy he picked cotton
    Not a day was, begun
    But everyone's forgotten
    I almost climbed to the perfect gates
    And next to him I had an easy road
    But I have my own heavy load
    A bitter kiss is been restored
    While the song of the rebel says

    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 dying
    A long distance driver
    And I will overcome
    Yes I will!

    Every human has a right
    Before the union rise up and fight
    Were 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

    And I am the outsider
    A horse with no rider
    I am the fighter
    When the darkest day has done
    And I am the survivor
    Not laying down and dying
    A little, fighter
    And I am only one

  11. Olivier Du Tré

    Song is heavily ‘inspired’ by The Gambler by Kenny Rogers.

  12. JP Alpharo

    Not much of a country man, but this was enjoyable to listen to

  13. Darren C

    Here because of the punisher too. Up to 41,854 views.

  15. Caleb Melton

    Im glad I'm not the only one that hears shades of the gambler by Kenny Rogers in this song

    Maximus DreivinX

    The drum beats and the verses/lyrics cadence have close resemblance to The Gambler .... caught that first time listening to this song in opening episode of The Punisher season 2

  16. Recovery Styx

    Punisher season 2 episode 1. Needed to listen to this song.

  17. Ghost Prepper

    Reminds me of Kenny Rogers.

    Ian Lust

  19. Rick Flair

    Saw Shooter play at Red Ants Pants Music Festival in White Sulphur Springs, Montana. Even though he wasn’t the headliner, he played the best show, and everyone there kept talking about how great he and his band were!

  20. jericho hill

    Been a shooter fan for years, as I am a fan of his daddy. Was watching the season 2 if the punished and kept saying, I think that's shooter. One more thing that makes that show incredible. And one more thing I will miss.

  21. Christian Eibel

    rough road

  22. RamshackleRozza

    Punisher season 2 didn’t show me this, haven’t watched it yet.

  27. Mentor Auditore

  28. Amber Cheri

    I'm by no means a country music fan but this song is so soothing. Netflix has done it again!

    gundam4eva20

    I got news for you, you are a country music fan. Listen to more outlaw country. Shit is real.

  29. Paret Hardrock

    Listning mainly to metal and most of the subgenres as black, industry, death and folk metal. Some pagan bands aswell like Wardruna, Heilung etc .. Music that includes soul. So Im very glad to find another alternative with so much feeling, great atmosphere and soul in this piece, and yes I also came directly from Punisher S02e01 to this awesome song. Thanks Shooter Jennings !

    Brandonburg

    Paret Hardrock that’s pretty much me

    Brandonburg

    Paret Hardrock you’d probably love Amon amarth and dimmu

  37. Blake Stone

    I'm not a fan or even casual listener of Shooter Jennings but I do like this song because it sounds similar to Kenny Rogers' "The Gambler".

    Jason Taylor

    Glad I'm not the only one. I heard this on the Punisher and was immediately struck by how much it sounded like Kenny Rogers.

  38. MrJBjr1

    True to the day.
