  • I wanna drink that shot of whiskey
    I wanna smoke that cigarette
    I wanna smell that sweet addiction on my breath
    I wanna ride 'cross West Virginia
    In the backseat of a Cadillac
    You know some cowboys like me go out like that
    So I need you

    Like a needle needs a vein
    Like my Uncle Joe in Oklahoma needs the rain
    I need you
    Like a lighthouse on the coast
    Like the Father and the Son need the Holy Ghost
    I need you

    I wanna get lost in some corner booth
    A cantina in Mexico
    I wanna dance to the static of an AM radio
    I wanna wrap the moon around us
    And lay beside you skin on skin
    Make love till the sun comes up till sun goes down again
    'Cause I need you

    Like a needle needs a vein
    Like my Uncle Joe in Oklahoma needs the rain
    I need you
    Like a lighthouse on the coast
    Like the Father and the Son need the Holy Ghost
    I need you

    Oh, I need you

    I wanna drink that shot of whiskey
    I wanna smoke that cigarette
    You know some cowboys like me go out like that
    So I need you
    Oh, I need you
    I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you

    Ooo, I need you, I need you, I need you
    I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, too Writer/s: David Cory Lee, Tony Lane
