"Heart Like Mine" as written by Miranda Lambert, Travis Howard and Ashley Monroe....
I ain't the kind you take home to mama
I ain't the kind to wear no ring
Somehow I always get stronger
When I'm on my second drink

Even though I hate to admit it
Sometimes I smoke cigarettes
The Christian folks say I should quit it
I just smile and say "God bless"

'Cause I heard Jesus he drank wine
And I bet we'd get along just fine
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
And I bet he'd understand a heart like mine

Daddy cried when he saw my tattoo
But said he loved me anyway
My brother got the brains of the family
So I thought I'd learn to sing

'Cause I heard Jesus he drank wine
And I bet we'd get along just fine
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
And I bet he'd understand a heart like mine

I'll fly away from it all one day
I'll fly away

These are the days that I will remember
When my names called on a roll
He'll meet me with two long stem glasses
Make a toast to me coming home

'Cause I heard Jesus he drank wine
And I bet we'd get along just fine
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
And I bet he'd understand, understand a heart like mine

Oh yes he would

    General Commenti think it's about a girl who was too afraid to really let herself fully love anybody. she built a wall when it came to materialistic relationships. the only relationship and one she could fully devote herself to was God and she was prepared for that final day hence the lyric, "When my name's called on the roll He'll meet me with two long-stemmed glasses Make a toast to me coming home" No man in her eyes is good enough because she only has room to fully devote herself to Him.

    General CommentShe's singing about the things in her life that make her different. She's not the norm, she's the opposite of what people consider right. But she's saying that whatever she does, bad or good, that God loves her and that He would understand her. I can relate to this song to a tee. Great song.

    General CommentEven though she doesnt fit in with the Christian stereotypes that judge her, she knows that her relationship with Jesus is solid and doesn't really give a flip what they think.. Love this song, would love to hang out drinking wine with Jesus!
