AWOSME SONG TOOk a Long time to figure out  strumming


[Verse 1]

G                              C                   Em
She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
G                      C                                D
She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
Em                                     G
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
       Em                              G
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
          D
Until the night


[Chorus 1]

   G                                              D
He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
     Em                     C
And finally drank away her memory
  G                                  D
Life is short but this time it was bigger
            Em                              C
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
 G                                       D
We found him with his face down in the pillow
  Em                                       C
With a note that said I'll love her till I die
G                                   D
And when we buried him beneath the willow
       C                     Em
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby
  Em                      C
la la la la la la la lalalalala


[Verse 2]

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


[Chorus 2]

G                                              D
She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
  Em                     C
And finally drank away his memory
 G                                  D
Life is short but this time it was bigger
 Em                              C
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
G                                       D
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Em                                       C
Clinging to his picture for dear life
G                                   D
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
  C                     Em
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby


[Interlude]

 Em                      C
la la la la la la la lalalalala
