I used to spend my nights. love, in a barroom
Liquor was the only love I've known
But you rescued me from reaching for the bottle
And you brought me back from being too far gone

Your as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
Your as sweet as strawberry wine
Your as warm as a glass of brandy
And I stay stoned on your love all the time
I looked for love in all the same old places
Found the bottom of the bottle always dry
But when you poured out your heart, I didn't waste it
'Cause there nothing like your love to gettin' me high

Your as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
Your as sweet as strawberry wine
Your as warm as a glass of brandy
And I stay stoned on your love all the time.

I stay stoned on your love all the time
