Preachin' to the Choir

  • Go!
    All right

    I'm either all in or all out
    I'm in the wooden pew Sunday party crowd
    If no one else will drink it then you know I will
    And wake up in the morning with some Baptist guilt
    Every tattoo's got a story to tell
    Mama said she's prayin' hard to keep me outta hell
    But whiskey tastes better when you chase it with a beer
    But I ain't telling nothing new to nobody here

    If I'm preachin' to the choir
    Raise your hands a little higher
    If you wanna sing along to a Saturday night revival song
    Let me see you sparking up your lighters
    Pour a little payday on the fire
    If you're a forty drinking, forty working, living the dream
    Then you're just like me
    And I'm preachin' to the choir, yeah
    Preachin' to the choir

    I ain't rich but I'm grateful
    Every time I'm driving with a tank full
    "Simple Man" coming through the dashboard speakers
    I'm a southern rock sinner, believer

    And I'm preachin' to the choir
    Raise your hands a little higher
    If you wanna sing along to a Saturday night revival song
    Let me see you sparking up your lighters
    Pour a little payday on the fire
    If you're a forty drinking, forty working, living the dream
    Then you're just like me
    And I'm preachin' to the choir

    And nothing like bourbon and the blues
    Smoke ring hallelu's
    Breaking our backs, bending the rules
    Southern dry, deep-fried, hearts of gold
    Hell, but you already know (you already know)

    That's right!

    'Cause I'm preachin' to the choir
    Raise your hands a little higher
    If you wanna sing along to a Saturday night revival song
    Let me see you sparking up your lighters
    Pour a little payday on the fire
    If you're a forty drinking, forty working, living the dream
    Then you're just like me
    And I'm preachin' to the choir
    Yeah, I'm preachin' to the choir
    I'm either all in or all out
    'Cause I'm preachin' to the choir
    That's right! Writer/s: HEATHER LYNN MORGAN, BRAD WARREN, BRETT WARREN, MORGAN WALLEN
