1st Verse:

I think I know what killed Keith Whitley,
And I wasn't just the whiskey,
Even with success there was a sad lonliness,
I think I know what killed Keith Whitley.

2nd Verse:

I think I know what got Hank Williams,
There was an emptiness that filled him,
Sitting in the back of that long cadillac,
I think I know what got Hank Williams.

Chorus:

Sometimes the teardrops can't be measured
Sometimes the blues have no name
Sometimes the feeling somethings missing
Grabs your heart and won't go away.

Third Verse:

I think I know what took Ol' Johnnny
And it wasn't his tired body
He went so soon after losing June
I think I know what took Ol' Johnny

Sometime the teardops can't be meazsuured
Sometimes the blues have no name
Sometimes the feeling somethings missing
Finds your heart and won't go away

I think I know what killed Keith Whitley
And it wasn't just the Whiskey.
