I Think I Know Lyrics

by Lee Ann Womack

I think I know what killed Keith Whitley
And I wasn't just the whiskey
Even with success there was a sad loneliness
I think I know what killed Keith Whitley

I think I know what got Hank Williams
There was an emptiness that filled him
Sitting in the back of that long Cadillac
I think I know what got Hank Williams

Sometimes the teardrops can't be measured
Sometimes the blues have no name
Sometimes the feeling something's missing
Grabs your heart and won't go away

I think I know what took Ol' Johnny
And it wasn't his tired body
He went so soon after losing June
I think I know what took Ol' Johnny

Sometime the teardrops can't be measured
Sometimes the blues have no name
Sometimes the feeling somethings missing
Finds your heart and won't go away

I think I know what killed Keith Whitley
And it wasn't just the whiskey
