Whiskey Lullaby  Alison Krauss



She put him [D]out like the b[G]urning end of a midnight cigar[Bm]ette
She b[A]roke his h[D]eart he s[G]pent his whole life trying to forg[A]et
We w[Bm]atched him drink his pain aw[A]ay [D]a little at a time
But he [Bm]never could get drunk eno[A]ugh [D]to get her off his mind
Until ton[A]ight...
He put that b[D]ottle to his head and p[G]ulled the t[A]rigger
And f[Bm]inally drank away her m[A]emor[G]y
[D]Life is short but this time it was b[A]igger
Than the s[Bm]trength he had to get up o[A]ff his kn[G]ees
They f[D]ound him with his face down in the pi[A]llow
With a n[Bm]ote that said I'll love her t[A]il I d[G]ie
And wh[D]en we buried him beneath the w[A]illow
The a[G]ngel's sang a whiskey lulla[Bm]by
[Bm]La la la la la la la,  La la la la la la [G]la
[Bm]La la la la la la la,  La la la la la la [G]la
The rumors f[D]lew but nob[G]ody knew how much she blamed her[Bm]self
For y[A]ears and y[D]ears she t[G]ried to hide the whiskey on her br[A]eath
She [Bm]finally drank her pain aw[A]ay [D]a little at a time
But she n[Bm]ever could get drunk enou[A]gh [D]to get him off her mind
Until the n[A]ight...
She put that b[D]ottle to her head and p[G]ulled the t[A]rigger
And f[Bm]inally drank away his m[A]emor[G]y
[D]Life is short but this time it was b[A]igger
Than the s[Bm]trength she had to get up o[A]ff her kn[G]ees
     [D]                               [A] 
We found her with her face down in the pillow
[Bm]Clinging to his picture f[A]or dear l[G]ife
We la[D]id her next to him beneath the w[A]illow
While a[G]ngel's sang a whiskey lulla[Bm]by
[Bm]La la la la la la la,  La la la la la la [G]la  [Bm]    [G]
