Just as I Am

Brantley Gilbert 2015

You said come just as you are
Skin and bones, smell like a bar
You sure you want me there this way
(spoken) Okay
Well I'm on my way
Grab this bottle just in case
I'm just too ashamed to pray
And I'm bringing this burden to You now
Yeah, the prodigal son returns
The only way that I know how,
The only way that I know how

Gonna drive my steel horse down to the altar
Put my hands on the tank and pray
Lord, I ain't got much to offer
But I ain't trying to die this way
So may this bottle be the body
And this bourbon be the blood
If I pour it out, will You take my offering
Give me the strength to never pick it up
Here I stand, just as I am

You know most folks don't understand
That I'm talking bout pouring out my best friend
(spoken) Damn
It sounds so sad, but that's how it is
And that's why it's gotta end
Lord, I've tried it by myself
Forget my pride, I need Your help

I'm gonna drive my steel horse down to the altar
Put my hands on the tank and pray
Lord, I ain't got much to offer
But I ain't trying to die this way
So may this bottle be the body
And this bourbon be the blood
If I pour it out, will You take my offering
Give me the strength to never pick it up
Here I stand, just as I am
Yeah, mmmmhmmmmmm

So fill that river full of tears and whiskey
Blood I've spilled and wars I've waged
A thousand loved, lost, heart broken memories
Scars on the heart and skin I'm wearing
Raise me up, a brand new man
So I can face this world
Just as I am

You said come just as you are
Skin and bones, and broken heart
You kept your word, and here I stand
Born again, just as I am
