Ain't it funny how a woman can change a man overnight
From a natural born rebel to a born-again-kinda-guy
All it took was one look in your eyes...now

I'm a new man walkin', you can write it in stone
You made me a believer once and for all
Well I used to be honky tonk trouble
I'm leavin' those days behind me on the double
With an angel like you in my corner
I'm tradin runnin' on whiskey for walkin' on water
(Runnin' on whiskey, walkin' on water)

I used to set 'em up, drink 'em down, make my rounds going strong
Makin' noise with the boys, gettin' wild past the break of dawn
Now those rip and roarin' days are gone

I'm a new man walkin', you can write it in stone
You made me a believer once and for all
Well I used to be honky tonk trouble
I'm leavin' those days behind me on the double
With an angel like you in my corner
I'm tradin runnin' on whiskey for walkin' on water

All those party friends of mine
Say I'm mighty hard to find these days
Well that might be true, but it's all because of you
I've learned to live it up a better way right beside you

I'm a new man walkin', you can write it in stone
You made me a believer once and for all
Well I used to be honky tonk trouble
I'm leavin' those days behind me on the double
With an angel like you in my corner
I'm tradin runnin' on whiskey for walkin' on water
Tradin runnin' on whiskey for walkin' on water
(Runnin' on whiskey, walkin' on water)
Walkin' on water
(Runnin' on whiskey, walkin' on water)
