  • Well, lately I've been trading a good sermon and some praying
    For a stranger in my bed and a night that needs explaining
    I've opened more bottles than I've ever have my Bible
    This third row communion sure won't lead me to revival

    Between the Black Label and the letters unread
    I've felt what living is and what it's like to live dead

    I've taken a ride in the devil's Cadillac
    I've been so high thought I wasn't coming back
    And just when I think I'm too far gone
    Ringing in my head's the 23rd psalm
    I've seen the light, I've seen the darkness
    Only God knows where my heart is
    I've got my strength and Lord knows I've got my weakness
    Oh, I'm lost somewhere between Jack Daniels and Jesus

    It's my fault that I ain't called my mama in a month of Sundays
    She'd smell the whiskey through that phone
    I can't stand to hear her heartbreak
    Next week I see my brother Casey for the first time
    Since it all went down and I blacked his eye the night after our daddy died

    I've taken a ride in the devil's Cadillac
    I've been so high thought I wasn't coming back
    And just when I think I'm too far gone
    Ringing in my head's the 23rd psalm
    I've seen the light, I've seen the darkness
    Only God knows where my heart is
    I've got my strength and Lord knows I've got my weakness
    Oh, I'm lost somewhere between Jack Daniels and Jesus

    I ain't afraid to admit I've hit rock bottom
    You want to see a lifetime full of sins
    Just look at me, I've got 'em

    I've taken a ride in the devil's Cadillac
    I've been so high thought I wasn't coming back
    And just when I think I'm too far gone
    Ringing in my head's the 23rd psalm
    I've seen the light, I've seen the darkness
    Only God knows where my heart is
    I've got my strength and Lord knows I've got my weakness
    Oh, I'm lost somewhere between Jack Daniels and Jesus Writer/s: Amanda Flynn, Brian Kelley, Chase Rice
