Whiskey Lullaby 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
Clinging 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



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 lalalalala

la la la la la la la lalalalala


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

clinging 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 lalalalala (gradually grow softer)

la la la la la la la lalalalala

la la la la la la la lalalalala
(One stroke, hard on the E string)
la la la la la la la lalalalala
