Shakin' Hands With The Holy Ghost

Album: The Whippoorwill (2012)
  • Split the night wide open
    I ain't got nowhere to go
    Yeah my baby's howlin' at me
    Yeah she's tearin' up the floor

    We got the Tennessee champagne
    Feelin' moonshine fine
    Yeah my Johnson City baby
    Yeah she helps me draw the line

    As the crow flies baby
    Gonna get me up on time
    Gonna light me up, yeah
    Like the 4th of July

    Everybody knows
    Baby take it slow
    Feel just like I'm singin with the heavenly host
    Everybody said
    Everybody knows
    Just like shakin' hands with the holy ghost

    She got the stuff that I need
    Keeps me comin' back for more
    I ain't ever gonna break away
    Got a hook in me for sure

    As the crow flies baby
    Gonna get me up on time
    Gonna light me up, yeah
    Like the 4th of July

    Everybody knows
    Baby take it slow
    Feel just like I'm singin with the heavenly host
    Everybody said
    Everybody knows
    Just like shakin' hands with the holy ghost
    Alright, mhmm yeah

    Everybody knows
    Baby take it slow
    Feel just like I'm singin with the heavenly host
    Everybody said
    Everybody knows
    Just like shakin' hands with the holy ghost

    Everybody knows
    Baby take it slow
    Feel just like I'm singin with the heavenly host
    Everybody said
    Everybody knows
