I used to spend my nights out in a barroom
Liquor was the only love I'd known
But you rescued me from reachin' for the bottom, baby
And you brought me back from being too far gone.

[Chorus]
And you're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You're as sweet as strawberry wine
You're as warm as a glass of brandy
And I stay stoned on your love all the time

Oh, I looked for love in all the same old places
Found the bottom of the bottle always dry
So when you poured out your heart I didn't waste it
Cause there's nothing like your love to get me high

[Chorus: x2]
