She put him out like the burning end
Of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart
He 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
You 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 downing 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
