There was a time I could drink my cares away
And drown out all of the heartaches
That hurt me night and day
When the thought of you came crashing through
I'd have one more
But now the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

I need one good honky-tonk angel
To turn my life around
That's reason enough for me to lay
This ol' bottle down
A woman warm and willin', that's what I'm lookin' for
'Cause the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

They knew my name at every bar in town
And they knew all of the reasons
Why I was comin' 'round, round, round (sing it, Travis)
'Cause in my mind, peace I'd find when they'd start to pour
But now the whiskey ain't workin' anymore (sing it, son)

I need one good honky-tonk angel
To turn my life around
That's reason enough for me to lay
This ol' bottle down
Well, a woman warm and willin'
Lord, that's what I'm lookin' for (that's right)
'Cause the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

Lord, the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

(That's for sure)
