alison krauss lyrics

She put him out like the burnin’ end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin’ 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

He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank 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 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

She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby
—  Whiskey Lullaby by Brad Paisley (feat. Alison Krauss)

The road was long and you hadn’t been bothered to change out of your dusty combat uniform. How could you? When your fingers went to unzip the jacket you flinched hearing the sound of bullets and screams of agony. You didn’t feel safe with it off but you knew at some point you would have to take it off. It was hard to shift from combat to civilian life.

Other than your gear you just had a picture from three summers ago. The picture of you and your boyfriend at the time, to be fair it was your fiancé. You didn’t know why you kept it.

You were giggling as Steve spun you around not even a second after the ring was pushed onto your finger. It was something he had held on to for the last year never knowing if he should ask you; given the job you had. You were beginning shipped out two days from now and he was hesitant because what if he lost you? It wasn’t until a sweet old man had watched as he was playing with the box and gave him some advice.
