The
Lord loves the drinkin' man He
sent honky tonk angels to the promise land I
hear that he can turn water to wine Any
man that can do that is a good friend of mine I've
been baptized in beer I'm, here to testify I
was speaking in tongues when I came home last night Some
folks say I'm livin' in sin but, I know The
Lord loves the drinkin' man The

preacher man he, told me "Boy, you, ain't no good "The
devil's gonna get ya best, start actin' like you should "All
the cold beer bright, lights stayin', out all night "The
good book it tells me boy your soul's gonna burn" My

mama said "Son, you're, headin' down the wrong road "They
don't let honky tonkers up in Heaven" I've been told Don't
you worry mama, I'll, see you up in heaven I've
been thinking 'bout it and, I've come to this conclusion Now

the, Lord loves the drinkin' man He
sent honky tonk angels to the promise land I
hear that he can turn water to wine Any
man that can do that is a good friend of mine I've
been baptized in beer I'm, here to testify I
was speaking in tongues when I came home last night Some
folks say I'm livin' in sin but, I know The
Lord loves the drinkin' man My

daddy says "Son, you're, living your life all wrong "Lighting's
gonna strike you down before too long "The
Man upstairs He, don't like what you do "When
you reach those pearly gates you, ain't getting through Well

I've, been thinkin' I've, got a brand new plan I'm
gonna start a little church down at the Stumble Inn Yeah
that's, right I'm, gonna start my own religion We'll
be drinkin' and a-dancin' at the church of Hank Williams Yeah

the, Lord loves the drinkin' man He
sent honky tonk angels to the promise land I
hear that he can turn water to wine Any
man that can do that is a good friend of mine I've
been baptized in beer I'm, here to testify I
was speaking in tongues when I came home last night Some
folks say I'm livin' in sin but, I know The
Lord loves the drinkin' man The

Lord loves the drinkin' man Sends
honky tonk angels to the promise land I
hear that he can turn water to wine Any
man that can do that is a good friend of mine I've
been baptized in beer I'm, here to testify I
was speaking in tongues when I came home last night Some
folks say I'm livin' in sin but, I know The
Lord loves the drinkin' man Oh

yeah, I, know The
Lord loves I, hope he does The,
Lord loves the drinkin' man
