Whiskey Lullaby
Brad Paisley

[Verse 1]
C                        F                  C           Am
She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
G                      F                             G
She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
F                       C            G          Am
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
    F                        C         G              Am
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
          G
Until the night

[Chorus 1]
            C                      F          G
He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
    Am            G        F
And finally drank away her memory
C                      F           G
Life is short but this time it was bigger
         Am                 G              F
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
 C                              F      G
We found him with his face down in the pillow
      Am                            G      F
With a note that said I'll love her till I die
C                       F          G
And when we buried him beneath the willow
    Am            F       Am
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby
Am                      F
la la la la la la la la la

[Verse 2]
C                   F                C             Am
The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself
G                                F                      G
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
F                     C           G          Am
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
    F                   C               G               Am
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
         G
Until the night

[Chorus 2]
             C                      F          G
She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
Am                        G   F
And finally drank away his memory
 C                          F      G
Life is short but this time it was bigger
         Am                  G              F
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
C                     F                G
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Am                      G        F
Clinging to his picture for dear life
C                       F           G
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
  Am             F              Am
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

[Outro]
 Am                      F
la la la la la la la la la

I needed to change this to a key that better fit my voice. Then added some cord changes 
in the original that I was using. This sounds right to me, but I am new at this, so if 
has any additional suggestions, I would appreciate hearing them. Bubba55
