Neon Church

Album: single release only (2018)
  • I need Jesus or I need whiskey
    Whatever works best to get me through
    Gettin' over you

    A little Friday night hallelujah
    A congregation of backsliders just like me
    Yeah, what I need

    Is a neon church with a jukebox choir
    Full of honky tonk angels
    With their wings on fire
    Straight pourin' out that Johnnie Walker healin'
    I got a feelin'
    I need a neon church

    Baptize me in that barroom smoke
    Bartender, preach to me 'til my heart ain't broke no more
    Ain't that what this place is for?

    I tried bended knee, hands-up prayin'
    But damn did that hurt don't just keep hangin' around
    What I need right now

    Is a neon church with a jukebox choir
    Full of honky tonk angels
    With their wings on fire
    Straight pourin' out that Johnnie Walker healin'
    I got a feelin'
    I need a neon church

    Just a-sippin' down that unholy water
    Save that hurt-like-hell for tomorrow
    I'll stay here all night

    In a neon church with the party crowd
    Where the good times roll
    And the music's loud
    Instead of home starin' holes in the ceiling
    I got a feeling

    I need a neon church with a jukebox choir
    Full of honky tonk angels
    With their wings on fire
    Straight pourin' out that Johnnie Walker healin'
    I got a feelin'
    I need a neon church
    I need a neon church

    Oh oh
    Oh oh
