lyrics

If You’re Looking For A Loser
In the key of Bb


This is Appomattox Courthouse
April 1865
The last confederate holdout
To keep a hopeless dream alive

To trade the true heart of Virginia
The grace of Robert E Lee
To that drunken, Union bastard
Would’ve been too much for me

Cut to 1965
Here come a young Cassius Clay
A sane man would’ve known better
Than to walk into that fray

But everybody’s seen that photo
And we can’t forget the day
Sonny Liston hit the canvas
I can’t believe it went that way

So if you’re looking for a loser
Another heart that’s gone astray
Just another worn out fighter
Who don’t know when to walk away

If you’re looking for a loser
You need only look to me
I’m Sonny Liston
I am Robert E. Lee
I’m Sonny Liston
I am Robert E. Lee
