I'm busted up, all down low
She's gone for good and I'm the one who messed it up
I said some things that pissed her off
She left me here just counting everything I lost
And all I have is a pocket of change and this hole in the wall

I'm throwing wishes in a whiskey well
I was trying to get her back as hard as hell
Oh, there's some magic in this Jack Daniels
'Cause my beggin', my pleadin' and my tears didn't help
Oh, it looks like I'm done with throwing wishes in a whiskey well

I set 'em up, hit me again
And keep them comin' until she comes back again
Another wish, another round
And make it fast, fill my glass before all my luck runs out
I say I'm down with my lost shot if you know what I mean

I'm throwing wishes in a whiskey well
I was trying to get her back as hard as hell
Oh, there's some magic in this Jack Daniels
'Cause my beggin', my pleadin' and my tears didn't help
Oh, it looks like I'm done with throwing wishes in a whiskey well

Hey, bartender it ain't it workin'
The well's run dry and I'm still hurtin'
She's still gone and I'm still here
By myself, by myself, by myself

I'm throwing wishes in a whiskey well
I was trying to get her back as hard as hell
Oh, there's some magic in this Jack Daniels
'Cause my beggin', my pleadin' and my tears didn't help
Oh, it looks like I'm done with throwing wishes in a whiskey well
