I was fifteen when my daddy's old man caught me half way through my first beer. He laughed so hard when my face turned green, he said you come from a long line of sinners like me.

Now me and my brother go to see him sometimes, but he don't have much to say anymore. So we sit on his headstone with a fifth of Jim Beam, here's to a long line of sinners like me.

la di da di da la di da da di di, I come from a long line of sinners like me.

My mama had a soft spot for a hell-raising boy, so she had two more just like him. It takes an angel to raise a family that comes from a long line of sinners like me.

Well now maybe who knows, one day I'll settle down. Give my dad a grandson of his own. And when the doctor smacks him, he'll probably take a swing, because he comes from a long line of sinners like me.

la di da di da la di da da di di, I come from a long line of sinners like me.

On the day I die I know where I'm gonna go. Me and Jesus got that part worked out. I'll wait at the gates til' his face I see, and stand in a long line of sinners like me, I stand in a long line of sinners like me.

la di da di da la di da da di di, I come from a long line of sinners like me.

la di da di da la di da da di di, Here's to a long line of sinners like me, I come from a long line of sinners like me
