I've never gotten drunk. I've never felt completely comfortable in bars. You'll rarely see me with a beer in my hand. I'm sure much of this has do with how I grew up. Now that I've had some time to reflect, I'm comfortable with how I was raised and who I am. I've always found it strange that I think Jesus would have been more comfortable in a bar than I am. It seems something got lost in translation. I guess I should also note that I normally have a flask of brandy nearby to clear my throat whenever we record.


Chorus: A Bible and a side of whiskey on the side of a Sunday afternoon
I wish it was just summer time and summer time’s coming soon

Well I grew up always hearing that this alcohol was wrong
but I’m so thankful you’re listening and you’re singing right-a-long
and some days I’m still not comfortable down at the local bar
and I knowing where I’ve come from that still seems pretty far


if sin is to be defined by who we are and what we drink
then maybe we should wipe off the slate and take a little time to think
see Jesus drank more alcohol than I will ever know
yes he turned that water into wine oh the bible tells me so


still I don’t like the taste of alcohol or cigarettes
and as I’m getting older that’s no longer a regret
but I do want to know you and consider you a friend
and if that means staying up too late well you can count me in
