Brad Paisley Whiskey Lullaby Lyrics 

She put him out - like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart - he spent his whole life tryin' 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

We 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

We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to 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
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
