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
