Whiskey Lullaby (Duet)

In the style of

Brad Paisley

Alison Krauss

Lyrics

she put him out
like the burnin' end
of a midnight
cigarette

she broke his heart
he spent his
whole life
tryin' to forget

we watched him
drink his pain away
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 finally
drank away
her memory

life is short
but 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'll love her till i die

and when
we 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
but nobody knew
how much
she blamed herself
for years and years
she tried to hide
the whiskey
on her breath

she finally
drank her pain away
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 finally
drank away
his memory

life is short
but this time
it was bigger
than the strength
she had to get up
off her knees

we found her
with her face down
in the pillow
clingin' to his picture
for dear life

we laid her next to him
beneath the willow
while 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
