I wanna drink that shot of whiskey.
I wanna smoke that ciggarette.
I wanna taste that sweet addiction on my breath.
I wanna ride across west virgina, a back seat of a catallac.
You know some cowboys like me go out like that.

(CHORUS)

I need you.
Like a needle needs a vain.
Like Uncle Joe in Oklahoma needs rain
Oh I need you.
Like a lighthouse on the coast.
Like the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost.
I need you.
Oohh I need you!

I wanna get lost in some corner booth Cantiana, Mexico.
I wanna dance to the static of an AM radio.
I wanna wrap the moon around us, lie beside you skin on skin.
Make love till the sun comes up till the sun goes down agian.

(CHORUS)

I need you.
Like a needle needs a vain.
Like Uncle Joe in Oklahoma needs rain.
Oh I need you.
Like a lighthouse on the coast.
Like the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost.
I need you.
Ooohh I need you.

I wanna drink that shot of whiskey.
I wanna smoke that ciggarette.
You know some cowboys like me go out like that.
