Marty Stuart – The Whiskey Ain't Workin' lyrics

Written by Marty Stuart and Ronny Scaife

There was a time I could drink my cares away
And drown out all of the heartaches that hurt me night and day
When the thought of you came crashing through, I'd have one more
But now the whiskey ain't workin' anymore
I need one good honky-tonk angel to turn my life around
That's reason enough for me to lay this ole bottle down
A woman warm and willin', that's what I'm lookin' for
'Cause the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

They knew my name in every bar in town
And they knew all of the reasons why I was comin' round, round, round
'Cause in my mind, peace I'd find, when they'd start to pour
But now the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

I need one good honky-tonk angel to turn my life around
That's reason enough for me to lay this ole bottle down
A woman warm and willin', that's what I'm lookin' for
'Cause the whiskey ain't workin' anymore
Lord the whiskey ain't workin' anymore
That's for sure
