I met Jesus in a bar
I guess you just can't fall too far
I was pouring whiskey in an empty heart
When I met Jesus in a bar

Man or angel, son of God, he did not tell me who he was, but I knew
In that least expected place, I saw heaven in his face and couldn't move
We sat there for hours, I could feel the grace and power,
And I said things I've never told a soul

I asked for forgiveness,
He said I've already done this, don't you know
I met Jesus in a bar
I guess you just can't fall too far
I was pouring whiskey in an empty heart
When I met Jesus in a bar

I asked for forgiveness.
He said I've already done this. Don't you know.
I met Jesus in a bar. I guess you just can't fall too far.
I was pouring whiskey in an empty heart, when I met Jesus in a bar.

I started crying in my hands and when I looked up again he was gone.
Then I walked the hallway home for the first time knowing I was not alone.
Some meet him on the highway, some meet him on a Sunday on the back row of a church
I can only tell you my way was in a place where people go to hurt.

I met Jesus in a bar.
I guess you just can't fall too far.
I was pouring whiskey in an empty heart.
When I met Jesus in a bar.

I was pouring whiskey in an empty heart
When I met Jesus in a bar.
