  • [Verse 1]
    God and country music are like whiskey and a prayer
    Like Johnny Cash's arm around Billy Graham
    God and country music, they both never change
    You find 'em when you need 'em where you stand

    [Chorus]
    There's always lost in the fountain
    And darkness in the I-saw-the-light
    It's livin' in the small towns
    In some church and backroad honky tonk tonight
    It's a dance between the sin and the salvation
    Come hell or high water, there's two things still worth saving
    God and country music
    God and country music

    [Verse 2]
    God and country music, they both showed me the truth
    Seen the low of the valley and the highs of the mountains too
    Folded hands and guitar strings, jukebox preachers and angels singin'
    Call you like they knew ya, between the hell and hallelujah

    [Chorus]
    There's always lost in the fountain
    And darkness in the I-saw-the-light
    It's still livin' in the small towns
    In some church and backroad honky tonk tonight
    It's a dance between the sin and the salvation
    Come hell or high water, there's two things still worth saving
    God and country music
    God and country music

    [Chorus]
    There's always lost in the fountain
    And darkness in the I-saw-the-light
    It's still livin' in the small towns
    In some church and backroad honky tonk tonight
    It's a dance between the sin and the salvation
    Come hell or high water, there's two things still worth saving
    God and country music
    God and country music
    God and country music
    God and country music
