Who Needs The Whiskey Lyrics

by Chris Cagle

She caught me on the back porch once again
In the middle of a fight, we both knew I couldn't win
Then she came up from behind and took my glass
And she said, "Hold me instead and soon the urge will pass"

And then she whispered, "I'm forever by your side
And together we can beat this thing
One step at a time"

And then she kissed me and it moved me
Yeah, she took away the fear and pain
And gave something new to soothe me
She said she needs me, oh, and she loves me
And with a woman as strong as that
Yeah, who needs the whiskey?

Well, I kept my weakness hidden for so long
Oh, but she gave me the strength to admit that I'd been wrong
And when I asked her why she stood right by my side
She said, you'd do the same for me with tears in her eyes

And then she wrapped her arms around me and held me close
And said if ever you need something strong
Well, baby just let me know

And then she kissed me and it moved me
Yeah, she took away the fear and pain
And gave something new to soothe me
She said, she needs me and she loves me
And with a woman as strong as that
Yeah, who needs the whiskey?

She says, she loves me and she'd never leave me
And with a woman as strong as that
Yeah, with a woman as strong as that
Well, who needs the whiskey?
No, I'm free
Yeah, who needs the whiskey?
