There's a bottle on the dresser by your ring
And it's empty so right now I don't feel a thing
I'll be hurtin' when I wake up on the floor
And I'll be over it by noon
And that's the difference between the whiskey and you

Come tomorrow I can walk in any store
It ain't a problem yeah they'll always sell me more
But you're forgiveness is something I can't buy
Ain't a thing that I can do
And that's the difference between the whiskey and you

One's the devil and one keeps driving me insane
At times I wonder if they ain't both the same
One's a liar that helps hide me from my pain
And one's a long hard bitter truth
And that's the difference between the whiskey and you

I've got a problem but it ain't like what you think
I drink 'cause I'm lonesome and I'm lonesome 'cause I drink
If I don't break down and bring it on myself it'll hit right out of the blue
That's the difference between the whiskey and you


Yeah that's the difference between the whiskey and you
