She ain't worth the whiskey 
She ain't worth the tears 
She ain't worth the barroom fight
A restless night her ghost still here
She ain't worth the roses 
Lost among the thorns 
She ain't worth the words you'd waste 
To mend the trust that's torn

She ain't worth the midnight 
She ain't worth the dawn
She ain't worth the pedestal 
That you placed her on
She ain't worth the hotel sheets
 Twisted on the bed
She ain't worth the tremblin'
Or the whispers that you said

But she was
In truth 
You know
She was
She was
And you're
 Fooling yourself
 Because 
She was

She ain't worth the mystery 
She ain't worth the risk
She ain't worth the medicine  Brushed across the lips
She ain't worth the vertigo 
She ain't worth the fall
She ain't worth surrender to
The drama of it all

She ain't worth apologies
She ain't worth the right or wrong 
She ain't worth the melody 
She ain't worth this song
But she was
