Chris Stapleton - Drunkard's Prayer Lyrics




I get drunk and talk to God
I say I'm sorry for all the things I'm not
And I mean every word I say
And I promise I can change
When I get drunk and talk to God

When I talk to God I tell him why we're through
I tell him all the things I did and didn't do
I'll say, "I can't be alone"
And he'll say, "Son, you're on your own"
'Cause when I talk to God I tell him why we're through

I wish that I could go to church but I'm too ashamed of me
I hate the fact it takes a bottle to get me on my knees
And I hope he'll forgive the things you ain't forgot
When I get drunk and talk to God

When I talk to God I thank him for the time
All those precious years that you were mine, all mine
I know he's a busy man, he'll help me if he can
So when I talk to God I thank him for the time

I wish that I could go to church but I'm too ashamed of me
I hate the fact it takes a bottle to get me on my knees
And I hope he'll forgive the things you ain't forgot
When I get drunk and talk to God

Oh, when I get drunk and talk to God

Chris Stapleton Drunkard's Prayer Comments
  1. James Hedrick

    John Pilgrim the Punisher season 2.

  2. Derek Westbrook

    This song hits me so hard in the feelings. I am pretty much like the man in the song, I am too ashamed of myself to go to church. I'm much of a non believer, so it does take a bottle of whiskey for me to muster courage enough to talk to God. I think if he would talk to me, he would probably say "Son, you're on your own"

  3. Samuel Henkle

    I watched the punisher but honestly I was drunk and this was in my recommended. God works in mysterious ways guys

  4. M V

    I was a guy from Htx but when I listen to Chris Stapleton l..... I'm from.....alchohol 🤷🏽‍♂️

  24. brandi kirby

    This song brings me to my knees.
    Such real/ raw Emotion

  25. Tom Nolan

    I never realized a lot of this song is completely allegorical..

    "I'll say I can't be alone, he'll say son you're on your own"

    He is saying that he is praying to God and obviously he is hearing nothing back..So the message he is recieving from this is that whatever he needs fixed will not come from God, but from himself.

    There are other Allegory's but uh..yeah.

  26. TheLongjohntim

    The first time I heard this song I wept thought of my mom, dad and brother. Grateful for their love! Learned what I didn't want to be and understand what I wanted! Miss you Mom, Dad and my brother Joe. R.I.P. This is Country music at it's best!

    And Jesus came and fellowshiped with the drunkards

    Matthew 11:19

    "The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' Yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds."

  40. Mark Johnson

  41. LOUIE skrt

    I'm not a crier, but man dude. I come from a dad who was an alcoholic. I dont remember it. He got sober before I was old enough to talk. But he came to God then when his radio got stuck on Kwave and heard the gospel message. So many people coming from bad backgrounds who find grace. This songs got me.

  42. Kylie Pollert

  60. igallo1000

    His music has a way of making you realize how short life is. The music makes you reflect on your past causing you to scrutinize the path you took and the decision you made along the way. I am just learning to be a better / kinder person.

  61. TheLonelySpider

    John Pilgrim being an absolute badass in punisher season 2.

    "Drunkard's Prayer"
    I get drunk and talk to God
    I say I'm sorry for all the things I'm not
    And I mean every word I say
    And I promise I can change
    When I get drunk and talk to God

    When I talk to God I tell him why we're through
    I tell him all the things I did and didn't do
    I'll say, "I can't be alone"
    And he'll say, "Son, you're on your own"
    'Cause when I talk to God I tell him why we're through

    I wish that I could go to church but I'm too ashamed of me
    I hate the fact it takes a bottle to get me on my knees
    And I hope he'll forgive the things you ain't forgot
    When I get drunk and talk to God

    When I talk to God I thank him for the time
    All those precious years that you were mine, all mine
    I know he's a busy man, he'll help me if he can
    So when I talk to God I thank him for the time

    I wish that I could go to church but I'm too ashamed of me
    I hate the fact it takes a bottle to get me on my knees
    And I hope he'll forgive the things you ain't forgot
    When I get drunk and talk to God

    Oh, when I get drunk and talk to God
