Krauss, Alison - Whiskey Lullaby 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

[1st Chorus]
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 till I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

[Sing lullaby]

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

[2nd Chorus]
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

  29. Ura Vea

    She put him out
    Like the burning end of a midnight cigarette
    She broke his heart
    He spent his whole life trying to forget

    We watched him drink his pain away
    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
    And 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 till 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 breathe

    She finally drank her pain away little at a time
    But she never could get drunk enough to get him of 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...

  30. Tara Wilson

    your hot but you make me cry for my bro and his wife separated

  31. Onyechi Ikpeazu

    Wondering what might have been had he truly forgiven her and allowed their lives to move on, despite the sad betrayal. Lost my first wife to an unfortunate death. Wish I could have her back. First cut no doubt is the deepest. This song brings back great memories. I listen to it each week.

  32. lipok sanen

    2020

  38. Shelbys GT2014

    Needed strength to get up off her knees!! Yea I bet! It’s 1000% her fault! She deserves it all

  39. R. S.F.

    I actually feel sad for both the man and the woman. The setting of the story seems to take place in the olden days where they did not have the type of communication and social media we have now. They may have lost contact with one another for years...she may have assumed he was dead... Yes, what she did was wrong, but waiting forever is a long time and loneliness can kill... Both are victims of war and time

    Mike Driggs

    You know what you just said is horseshit, right? Especially the part where loneliness can kill. You suck it up and stay faithful or you don't marry. It's that simple.

    R. S.F.

    @Mike Driggs @Mike Driggs You cannot take what I said out of context... In the olden days, particularly around world war 1 and world war 2, it was relatively common for people to lose contact for years.... Many men disappeared during these wars and many more were assumed to be dead. Maybe that was her case (the lady in the video)... With that level of uncertainty, loneliness can kill especially in the aftermath of war and economic depression.
    Two movies come to mind: "Pearl harbor" (when the woman thought her lover Rafe died in war) and "Legends of the Fall" (when Triston disappears for years without reaching out to his first love)....I sympthasized with both the men and the women in those movies... It's tragic in both cases, yet it's not always black and white

    Gloria Mary Haywood

    @R. S.F. You've got a damn good point there. Nope, life doesn't always play fair, or turn out the way we planned it together or thought it would be. War time puts everything on hold. It not only affects the present but the future as well. It's just as well that some of us don't know how the future is gonna unfold for us. We might not have the courage to live thru it. Things happen that can and will change your life forever.......

  58. Ricky Hall

    I love and hate this song so much, when I was about 2 my dad got deployed and my mom found a new guy blaming my dad for everything. Fast foreword 10 years and that new bf of hers used to yell at me and put me down until I wanted to kill myself. Cheating just isn’t worth it no matter what

  59. Jemmy soni

    😭😭😭 it's 2020 and it still gets me

  60. Lucille de Lorme

    Bloody annoying videos. Just play the song already, we know country songs involve cheating and heartache so we can listen to the lyrics.

  61. warrior 36

    Dont join keep the bitch in sight

  62. Tomar

    Anybody here in starting of 2020...........

  63. Ayan Chowdhury

    I got cheated, rather i think my actions turns that in that way. People cheated on me before, so when I think that goes that way, I started playing dota, then she called and told her about new affair. From the age of 3 I slept in other room, father passed away when am 18, but still I am holding together. Bt when she told her about that affair. I just put down the ph and ran from my home. And for 1 month my mom put me between her hands or put my head all night, and I am 21. Huh. Can u believe. That's why I think my mom takes it seriously and hold me back. She told me from night to night I screamed. My mom saved my life. Then after 1 month somehow we got together. And back then am so dizzy I don't know what I want or why. Bt I need her back then. Bt she started cheating again. We got separated within 2 months. This time I didn't react may be I didn't surprise by her action.

    And then there's girl. Tornado. After a long time there a person who smile at you, and then when I had no clue why I am doing my graduation, bt whenever I saw that girl. Wow she is awesome. She will wish you, ask you what is wrong. I really never have a such kind of frnd in my entire life. Thank you for save my life. With out you it will be more difficult to bear my graduation days.
    Nowadays she worked for a very popular company in our country. Wish you all the best. You are such a nice person.
    Though, I have a single photo of ours, that day I stopped loving you I will remove myself from that frame, and I wish I couldn't do that.
    Be happy posto. And thank you for teaching me you can love someone, without having them. 😊

  64. Kayleen Paradez

  89. chrissy teeters

    My friend told me a story about a friend of his that he met while deployed. He joined to please his girlfriend (they were dating 3 years at the time). 3 months after being deployed she sends him a dear John letter basically saying how this was to hard to deal with on her end, she needed a real man to be there for her and the distance ruined her love for him and she wanted to see other people. It obviously hit him very hard. A few days later he shot him self while doing rounds. This song gets to me every time after hearing personal stories of breakups while people are deployed :(

  90. Dylan Lacey

    i have no clue why they make her seem like she was still somehow a victim in this story fact is she wasnt good enough for him she couldnt even stay loyal while he was fighting for his country and having his friends die around him and this is how she repaid him

  91. simon shakya

    It pains me even more when he forgives her... And dances with her...

    It breaks me everytime i watch this video...

    Mike Driggs

    Just as long as you know that they're dead in the video, and that's NOT how the afterlife works. If you even get an afterlife. Many will get an afterdeath.

  92. Mario Nintendo

    I Was in Tennessee, but i hace yo believe, Now fuck top

  93. Rose HS

    Just stumbled upon this song, and have gone through some of the comments, It is truly a sad state of affairs i must admit, but just as you cannot label all men as Casanovas you definitely cannot brand women as all adulteresses. We however should remember and believe that there is always someone out there who would make life better for the broken hearted

  94. Phil Stewart

    This is the worst song ever
