She put him out like the burning end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart
Spent his whole life trying 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
They found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said 'I'll love her 'til 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
They found her with her face down in the pillow
She was clinging to his picture for dear life
They 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
