Beer with Jesus
Thomas Rhett Lyrics


If I could have a beer with Jesus
Heaven knows I'd sip it nice and slow
I'd try to pick a place that ain't too crowded
Or gladly go wherever he wants to go

You can bet I'd order up a couple tall ones
Tell the waitress put "em on my tab
I'd be sure to let him do the talkin'
Careful when I got the chance to ask
How'd you turn the other cheek
To save a sorry soul like me
Do you hear the prayers I send
What happens when life ends
And when you think you're comin' back again
I'd tell everyone, but no one would believe it
If I could have a beer with Jesus

If I could have a beer with Jesus
I'd put my whole paycheck in that jukebox
Fill it up with nothing but the good stuff
Sit somewhere we couldn't see a clock

Ask him how'd you turn the other cheek
To save a sorry soul like me
Have you been there from the start
How'd you change a sinner's heart
And is heaven really just beyond the stars
I'd tell everyone, but no one would believe it
If I could have a beer with Jesus

He can probably only stay, for just a couple rounds
But I hope and pray he's stayin' till we shut the whole place down

Ask him how'd you turn the other cheek
To save a sorry soul like me
What's on the other side?
Is mom and daddy alright?
And if it ain't no trouble tell them I said hi
I'd tell everyone but no one would believe it
If I could have a beer with Jesus
I'd tell everyone but no one would believe it
If I could have a beer with Jesus

People are missing the real message to this song. It's not about drinking in a bar or something, it's about talking to Jesus. Country people prefer to socialize and have conversations while having a little drink. Nothing wrong with that. What he's saying is if he could sit down and hang out and have a conversation with the Lord, this is how he would do it. Stop hating on him and actually listen to the song. God bless you.

I agree this is one of my favorite songs

NOO NOPE

it wil mean what they want it too. just like the bible, koran, etc 1 book hundreds of different interpretations..... humans are not that bright. very gullibale. wiling to give their free will away for bag of tricks or good talk.......

Blair Thomas

You right it would be no difference between grabbing a beer and grabbing supper as far as the song is concerned and after all I think he is from the Bible Belt and I doubt he would go there

@Rob Hollander commenting on a five year old thread. Jesus, find this man something better to do.

@Jason Eyerly Your sarcastic and insulting response to Eia, apparently a sincere and intelligent person making a completely understandable point, sadly is the stuff that pollutes social media.

I love this song cause it hits home for me. When I was 17 I fell asleep behind the wheel. My foot floored it and I got up to 68 mile per hour. Right before I hit the car at the light I woke up and I felt arms wrap around me and told me to sleep. for the few seconds of impact I was unconscious. Needless to say me and the driver both walked away with no injurys. The cop that did the report from the hospital told my mom he has no idea how I am still alive let alone without a scratch. Jesus saved me that day and the guy I unfortunately hit. If I get the chance I would love to ask Jesus why he saved me that day.

@Courtney Courteau I like to think it's because of the strength it gives us as people and brings people from all walks of life together in order to find a cure to fight it...but that's just me trying to find a bright side. God bless y'all and take care :)
