  • The fish are finally biting
    At the cut out on the Caney
    Your daddy's still fixing motors
    And a good guy married Macy
    It's still a religion 'round here
    Ya, we crack a cold beer and raise 'em up
    To every Tennessee touchdown
    I wonder what you're doing in heaven right now

    They still ain't paved that road
    On lower Lickton Pike
    I still look for your truck sometimes
    At Sonic on Friday night
    There's still punch the dashboard hurts
    Every time I hear Eric Church
    Sing Sinners Like Me
    I crank it up real loud
    I wonder what you're doing in heaven right now

    Are you fishing? Are you flying?
    How much greener is the grass?
    Are you older, are you younger?
    Or did time stop in its tracks?
    Anyway, thought I'd say hey
    I just made my way past your momma's house
    I wonder what you're doing in heaven right now, mm

    I still play this old guitar
    But the crowds have gotten bigger
    My kids have never met you
    But they all know you from pictures
    When the whole crew gets together
    Memory lane goes on forever
    We twist a top and pour a little Jack D out
    I wonder what you're doing in heaven right now

    Are you fishing? Are you flying?
    How much greener is the grass?
    Are you older? Are you younger?
    Have you met Johnny Cash?
    Anyway, thought I'd say hey
    It's getting late and I'm putting these babies down
    I wonder what you're doing in heaven right now, yeah
    I wonder what you're doing in heaven right now, ooh

    Yeah, Lauren still wears your bracelet
    And people still ask about it
    It's been everywhere I've been
    'Cause I don't go nowhere without it
    Yeah, I missed church last week
    Could you put in a word for me
    If you and God get to hanging out
    I look forward to catching up
    When my time comes around
    I wonder what you're doing in heaven right now (heaven right now)
    I wonder what you're doing in heaven right now (heaven right now)
    I wonder what you're doing in heaven right now (heaven right now)
    (Heaven right now)
