Alec Davis - Outlaw Lyrics

Somehow knew it would come to this
Instead of writin' songs about spirit and truth
We would celebrate fame, money, and youth
Hank if you can hear me
Will you pray for us all?
We need an outlaw
Someone who don't sing for money and fame
Someone who calls on Jesus' name
Someone who knows what it means to fight and to fall
We need an outlaw
Look around, it ain't hard to believe
So goes the music, so goes the country
We left behind our heart and honesty
So no one would get hurt or offended easily
Merle if you're up there
Will you pray for us all?
We need an outlaw
Someone who don't sing for money and fame
Someone who calls on Jesus' name
Someone who knows what it means to fight and to fall
We need an outlaw
An outlaw's got songs we need to hear
And outlaw's held crosses they need to bear
Outlaw's have courage in the face of fear
And outlaw's are everywhere
History is written by the winners of the war
And the truth is what we're fightin' for
Should we slip away to the quiet night
Or boldly speak up and say what is right?
Merle if you're up there
Sturgill if you're listenin'
Cody if you can hear me
Would y'all pray for us all?
We need an outlaw
Someone who don't sing for money and fame
Someone who calls on Jesus' name
Someone who knows what it means to fight and to fall
We need an outlaw
We need an outlaw
We need an outlaw
