Whiskey Lullaby
by Melonie Cannon



She put him out, like the burning end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart, he spent his whole life trying to forget
We watched him drink away his pain 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 he finally blew away her memory
Life is short, 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 love her till I die
And when they buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

The rumors flew, nobody knew just how she blamed herself
For years and years, she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
She finally drank away her pain 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 she finally blew away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees

They found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
They laid her next to him beneath the willow
And the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
