[VERSE]
              D                  G                              Bm
  She put him out       like the burning end of a midnight cigarette
      A         D                G                                 A
  She broke his heart         he spent his whole life trying to forget

  D        G        Bm    A  D        G        A
G:--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|

E:--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|

     Bm                          A     D
  We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
         Bm                     A        D
  But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
            A
  Until the night...

  Bm    A  D        Bm    A  D        A

[CHORUS]
               D                                A
  He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
      Bm                          G
  And finally drank away her memory
  D                                  A
  Life is short but this time it was bigger
           Bm                                G
  Than the strength he had to get up off his knees

  D        A        Bm       G        D        A        Bm       G

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

  D        A        Bm       G        D        A        G

             D                  G                                Bm
  The rumors flew         but nobody knew how much she blamed herself
                D               G                                A
  For years and years       she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath

  D        G        Bm    A  D        G        A

  We found her with her face down in the pillow
  Bm                               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
