[Intro]
Bm   G


[Verse]
            D            G
She put him out like the burning end
                  Bm
of a midnight cigarette
    A         D
She broke his heart
    G                                A
he spent his whole life trying to forget
   Bm                          A
We watched him drink his pain away
  D
a little at a time
       Bm                     A
But he never could get drunk enough
   D
to get her off his mind
        A
Until tonight


[Chorus]
            D
He put that bottle to his head
    G          A
and pulled the trigger
    Bm                     A   G
And finally drank away her memory
D                                  A
Life is short but this time it was bigger
          Bm                       A       G
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
     D                                   A
They found him with his face down in the pillow
       Bm                           A     G
With a note that said I'll love her til I die
    D                              A
And when we buried him beneath the willow
    G                           Bm
The angel's sang a whiskey lullaby
Bm                                      G
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la
Bm                                      G
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la




[Verse]
           D          G
The rumors flew but nobody knew
                       Bm
how much she blamed herself
    A         D         G
For years and years she tried
                           A
to hide the whiskey on her breath
    Bm                      A
She finally drank her pain away
  D
a little at a time
        Bm                     A
But she never could get drunk enough
   D
to get him off her mind
          A
Until the night


[Chorus]
             D
She put that bottle to her head
    G          A
and pulled the trigger
    Bm                     A   G
And finally drank away his memory
D                                  A
Life is short but this time it was bigger
          Bm                        A       G
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
   D                                   A
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Bm                      A        G
Clinging to his picture for dear life
   D                                A
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
      G                           Bm
While angel's sang a whiskey lullaby
Bm                                      G   Bm  G
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la
Bm                                      G   Bm  G
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la
Bm~                                     G~  \
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
