  • Think I read somewhere in the Good Book
    Says He's everywhere
    Up in this tree with the wind and the leaves
    Yeah, it all seems so clear
    When your phones in the truck, and you're camo'd up
    And your mind's just runnin' free
    It might look like huntin', but it's way more than that to me

    I do my prayin' in a deer stand
    On my back forty church
    Thinkin' 'bout life on a cold sunrise
    Yeah, that's my Heaven on Earth
    Me and God in a cornfield
    Gotta think He understands
    I might miss a Sunday from time to time
    But I get there when I can
    We're all good in these woods
    'Cause here I am, prayin' in a deer stand

    Some find it on a pier where they used to fish with their old man
    Some feel it when the choir sings
    And that light hits that stained glass
    We're all down here searching for an answer or a sign
    The way those clouds are moving in
    I think He's hearing me just fine

    I do my prayin' in a deer stand
    On my back forty church
    Thinkin' 'bout life on a cold sunrise
    Yeah, that's my Heaven on Earth
    Me and God in a cornfield
    Gotta think He understands
    I might miss a Sunday from time to time
    But I get there when I can
    We're all good in these woods
    'Cause here I am, prayin' in a deer stand
    Prayin' in a deer stand, woo

    My boots back on the ground, my head back right
    You got your ways of gettin' through, I got mine

    I do my prayin' in a deer stand
    Out on my back forty church
    Thinkin' 'bout life on a cold sunrise
    Yeah, that's my heaven on earth
    Me and God in a cornfield
    Gotta think He understands
    I might miss a Sunday from time to time
    But I get there when I can
    We're all good in these woods
    'Cause here I am, prayin' in a deer stand
