Montgomery Gentry - Long Line Of Losers Lyrics

Granddaddy was Irish Cherokee
Ran moonshine from here to Tennessee
Spent half his life in the Montgomery county jail

Grandma she got drunk and left
All her kids on her mamas front steps
Nobody's heard from her since she hightailed

I come from a long line of losers
Half outlaw half boozers
I was born with a shot glass in my hand
I'm part hippie a little red neck
I'm always a suspect
My blood line made me who I am

Daddy never finished school
But he shot one mean game of pool
Took a bullet for stealin' cars down in Birmingham

Mama always went to church
But we soon found out what her reasons were
She got caught at the local motel with the preacher man

I come from a long line of losers
Half outlaw half boozers
I was born with a shot glass in my hand
I'm part hippie a little red neck
I'm always a suspect
My blood line made me who I am

I come from a long line of losers
Half outlaw half boozers
I was born with a shot glass in my hand
I'm part hippie a little red neck
I'm always a suspect
My blood line made me who I am

I come from a long line of losers
Half outlaw half boozers
I was born with a shot glass in my hand
I'm part hippie a little red neck
I'm always a suspect
My blood line made me who I am

I come from a long line of losers......

    Daddy never

  71. Dan V.

    What a tragedy. It goes silent at 3:42 though. I came from a long line of winners that, I thought , appreciated the sacrifices of others. Turns out they were just a bunch of Scrooge type capitalists. After working me like a mule for a ranch I was supposed to inherit Big sis took mom away one night and apparently the ranch was left to her after oil was discovered on it. I'm a lawyer and no way I could afford to sue for my rights in Texas. Women rule!

  72. Rick Scoles

    Got bond money for my birthday

  73. Eric Melvin

    RIP Troy gentry

  74. DarkGlacier78

    No disrespect to MG but it's strange to hear two guys from Kentucky mention the Montgomery Co. Jail, Little more convincing coming from Kevin. Growing up in MoCo, it always sounds crazy when people that have never been incarcerated there refer to it.

  75. Chad Snow

    My blood line maid me who I am

  76. zig zag

    Man that is my people. God honest truth. This is my song. Sounds just like my family and myself. And if you are anything like me then God bless you have a story to tell. So give us one big hell yeah rebel yell.

    zig zag

    Man this is my family song just ask any one about the Jackson family in Asheville north Carolina you will find out fast.
