I Need You Lyrics

by Steel Magnolia

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 back seat 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 a rain
And 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, Cantina, Mexico
I wanna dance to the static of an AM radio
I wanna wrap the moon around us, lay beside you skin on skin
Make love 'til the sun comes up, 'til the sun goes down again

'Cause I need you, like a needle needs a vein
Like my uncle Joe in Oklahoma needs a 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
I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you, I need you, I need you too
