(Jon Randall, Bill Anderson)

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 a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night

(CHORUS 1)
He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally blew 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

(CHORUS 2)
She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger

And finally blew away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Then the strength she had to get up off her knees
They found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
They laid her next to him beneath the willow
And the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

(Sing Lullaby)

And the angels sang a whiskey lullaby
