The Lord Loves The Drinkin' Man  Mark Chesnutt

He sent h[A]onky tonk angels to the promised land
[B]I hear that he can turn the water to wine
[E]Any man that can do that oh he's a good friend of mine
I've been [E7]baptized in beer I'm here to testify
I was s[A]peakin' in tongues when I came home last night
[B]Some folks say I'm livin' in sin
But I k[A]now the Lord l[B]oves the d[E]rinkin' man
Verse 1:
[E]Well the preacher man he told me boy you ain't no [E7]good
The d[A]evil's gonna getcha best start actin' like you s[A7]hould
Oh the c[B]old beer and bright lights, stayin' out all night
[E]Good book it tells me boy your soul's gonna burn
[E]Momma said son you're headin' down the wrong r[E7]oad
They d[A]on't let honky-tonkers up in Heaven I've been t[A7]old
[B]Don't you worry momma, I'll see you up in Heaven
[E]I've been thinking bout it and I've come to this conclusion
CHORUS
Break: A B E
Verse 2:
Well my daddy said son you're livin' your life all wrong
Lightning's gonna strike you down before too long
The man upstairs, he don't like what you do
When you reach those pearly gates you ain't getting through
Well I've been thinking, got a brand new plan
I'm gonna start a little church down at the stumble-inn
Yeah that's right gonna start my own religion
We'll be drinkin' and a dancin' at the church of Hank Williams
Solo: E A B A B C (key change)

F -1-3-5-(E string)
The Lord Loves the drinkin' man
He sent h[Bb]onky tonk angels to the promised land
[C]I hear that he can turn the water to wine
[F]Any man that can do that oh he's a good friend of mine
I've been [F7]baptized in beer I'm here to testify
I was s[Bb]peakin' in tongues when I came home last night
[C]Some folks say I'm livin' in sin
But I k[Bb]now the Lord lo[C]ves,[Bb] I hope He d[C]oes
[Bb]The Lord lo[C]ves the dr[F]inkin' man
