  • I ain't the kind you take home to mama
    I ain't the kind to wear no ring
    Somehow I always get stronger
    When I'm on my second drink

    Even though I hate to admit it
    Sometimes I smoke cigarettes
    The Christian folks say I should quit it
    I just smile and say "God bless"

    'Cause I heard Jesus he drank wine
    And I bet we'd get along just fine
    He could calm a storm and heal the blind
    And I bet he'd understand a heart like mine

    Daddy cried when he saw my tattoo
    But said he loved me anyway
    My brother got the brains of the family
    So I thought I'd learn to sing

    'Cause I heard Jesus he drank wine
    And I bet we'd get along just fine
    He could calm a storm and heal the blind
    And I bet he'd understand a heart like mine

    I'll fly away from it all one day
    I'll fly away

    These are the days that I will remember
    When my names called on a roll
    He'll meet me with two long stem glasses
    Make a toast to me coming home

    'Cause I heard Jesus he drank wine
    And I bet we'd get along just fine
    He could calm a storm and heal the blind
    And I bet he'd understand, understand a heart like mine

    Oh yes he would Writer/s: ASHLEY MONROE, MIRANDA LAMBERT, TRAVIS HOWARD
