1. vers


She put him
D
⁠out like the
G
⁠burning end of a midnight ciga
Bm
⁠rette

She
A/C#
⁠broke his
D
⁠heart, he
G
⁠spent his whole life trying to for
A
⁠get

We
Bm
⁠watched him drink his pain a
A/C#
⁠way a
D
⁠little at a time

But he
Bm
⁠never could get drunk e
A/C#
⁠nough to
D
⁠get her off his mind

Until the
A
⁠night

Ref 1


He put that
D
⁠bottle to his head and pulled the
A
⁠trigger

And
Bm
⁠finally drank away her memo
G
⁠ry
D
⁠Life is short but this time it was
A
⁠bigger

Than the
Bm
⁠strength he had to get up
Bm/A
⁠off his
G
⁠knees

They
D
⁠found him with his face down in the
A
⁠pillow

With a
Bm
⁠note that said I'll love her
Bm/A
⁠till I
G
⁠die

And
D
⁠when we buried him beneath the
A
⁠willow

The
G
⁠angel's sang a whiskey lulla
Bm
⁠by
Bm
⁠ La la la la la la la, La la la la la la
G
⁠la

⁠ La la la la la la la, La la la la la la

2. vers


The rumors
D
⁠flew but no
G
⁠body knew

how much she blamed her
Bm
⁠self

For
A/C#
⁠years and
D
⁠years she
G
⁠tried

to hide the whiskey on her
A
⁠breath

She
Bm
⁠finally drank her pain a
A/C#
⁠way a
D
⁠little at a time

But she
Bm
⁠never could get drunk e
A/C#
⁠nough

to
D
⁠get him off her mind
