Whiskey Lullaby
Brad Paisley Lyrics


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I heard this song for the first time today, and I am at my lowest, after reading the comments I know I’m not the only one who feels like this song was written for them… so to all of you who are here because you are going or have gone through something, I want you to know that WE ARE NOT ALONE, and most importantly, WE ARE GOING TO BE OK!!!

Love it

I guess I can't be 2 people
No matter how hard i tried
No matter how much I cried, I make songs, cry me a river. I'll fill your oceans

One of the best songs in history. You’ll get emotionally attached just listening to the audio without even the visuals. This is a masterpiece

It's almost 2023
I come back to these songs once in a while to try and feel connected to my biological mother. After she suffered a major stroke, and survived and is willing to try and fix our broken relationship I come to this song for comfort. I can no longer cry due to the meds I'm on, but I think if I could. I'd cry, but for once not sad tears. Happy tears. Country, but specifically this song has seen me go through so much. And will always be a comfort.
