Whiskey Lullaby

	  		Intro: Bm   G  
  
           D             G                             Bm  
She put him out like the burning end of a midnight cigarette  
    A         D        G                                 A  
She broke his heart he spent his whole life trying to forget  
   Bm                          A  D  
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time  
      Bm                       A   D  
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind  
        A  
Until tonight...  
  
  
Chorus 1:   
            D                                A  
He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger  
    Bm                        G  
And finally drank away her memory  
D                                   A  
Life is short but this time it was bigger  
         Bm                                G  
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees  
     D                                    A  
They found him with his face down in the pillow  
       Bm                           A     G  
With a note that said I'll love her til I die  
     D                             A  
And when we buried him beneath the willow  
    G                          Bm  
The angel's sang a whiskey lullaby  
Bm                                       G  
La la la la la la la,  La la la la la la la  
Bm                                       G  
La la la la la la la,  La la la la la la la  
  
  
           D          G                               Bm  
The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself  
    A         D         G                                 A  
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath  
   Bm                       A  D  
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time  
        Bm                       A  D  
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind  
          A  
Until the night...  
  
  
Chorus 2:   
             D                                A  
She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger  
    Bm                     A   G  
And finally drank away his memory  
D                                   A  
Life is short but this time it was bigger  
         Bm                                 G  
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees  
    D                                     A  
We found her with her face down in the pillow  
Bm                       A        G  
Clinging to his picture for dear life  
    D                               A  
We laid her next to him beneath the willow  
      G                          Bm  
While angel's sang a whiskey lullaby  
Bm                                       G   Bm  G  
La la la la la la la,  La la la la la la la  
repeat to fade
