i need you lyrics – steel magnolia

“i need you”

i wanna drink that shot of whiskey.
i wanna smoke that cigarette.
i wanna taste that sweet addiction on my breath.
i wanna ride across west virginia, a back seat of a catallac.
you know some cowboys like me go out like that.

i need you.
like a needle needs a vain.
like uncle joe in oklahoma needs rain
oh i need you.
like a lighthouse on the coast.
like the father and the son and the holy ghost.
i need you.
oohh i need you!

i wanna get lost in some corner booth cantiana, mexico.
i wanna dance to the static of an am radio.
i wanna wrap the moon around us, lie beside you skin on skin.
make love till the sun comes up till the sun goes down again.

i need you.
like a needle needs a vain.
like uncle joe in oklahoma needs rain.
oh i need you.
like a lighthouse on the coast.
like the father and the son and the holy ghost.
i need you.
ooohh 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.
