It's A Whiskey Lullliby


It's A Whiskey Lullliby


She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette


She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget


We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
a little at a time


But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind


Until the night








He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger


And finally drank away her memory


Life is short but this time it was bigger


Than the strength he had to get up off his knees


We found him with his face down in the pillow


With a note that said I'll love her till I die


And when we buried him beneath the willow


The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself


For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath


She finally drank her pain away a little at a time


But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind


Until the night








She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger


And finally drank away his memory


Life is short but this time it was bigger


Than the strength she had to get up off her knees


We found her with her face down in the pillow


Clinging to his picture for dear life


We laid her next to him beneath the willow


While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby
