Loveless, Patty - Cheap Whiskey Lyrics




He sits all alone in his easy chair
Staring back on all his lost yesterdays
Long before he encountered the bottle
And the demons that drove her away
In his hand he is holding her photograph
Her image all tear-stained and worn
Tonight he's embracing reality
And he curses the day he was born

And the darkness still echoes her warning
You can't have two loves in your life
Now the things that still haunt him
Till the day he dies
Is the smell of cheap whiskey
And the sound of goodbye

Since the hour she left he's been sober
And each breath that he draws makes him think
Of the love of his life lost forever
When he traded her love for a drink

And the darkness still echoes her warning
You can't have two loves in your life
Now the things that still haunt him
Till the day he dies
Is the smell of cheap whiskey
And the sound of goodbye

And the darkness still echoes her warning
You can't have two loves in your life
Now the things that still haunt him
Till the day he dies
Is the smell of cheap whiskey
And the sound of goodbye

Loveless, Patty Cheap Whiskey Comments
  1. Shane Lambert

    Patty all the way!

  2. Deb Kosteniuk

    I love this version; I also know and love Martina's version. In my world, there's room for both interpretations...and it's a better place for both of them being there.

  3. Haley Rose

    Anyone here in almost 2020?

  4. Dennis Wilson

    Martina did a good job on this! But Pattie's bluegrass roots and passion!!! By far exceed any one else!!! Just my opinion!

  5. leon pierson

    This not really bluegrass but mountain music. There is country, bluegrass and mountain music and they are completely differently

    Paula Westmoreland

    You bet your ass it does....Rhonda Vincent would be hard to beat.....Terrick....Bluegrass through & through & if anyone truely appreciates music & it's buisness....would 100% agree. Patty is a Country singer who crosses over to Bluegrass without a hitch. And Martina....will blow you out of the water with that strong penetrating voice of hers. All 3 are beautifully talented with their own style !!!
