Whiskey Lyrics

Momma cried when you left me
Know she's always loved you so
She said "hey fool what the hell did you do?"
I said "mom I swear to God I just don't know"
Picture book sittin on the table
Memories stacked up through the years
But tonight there ain't no pictures on them pages
Cuz your kinda girl, never gonna come back home again

Yeah tonight all the dancehalls are empty
No young lovers on the floor
So I'll sit here with my whiskey
Drink it 'till I just can't drink no more

And I don't know why you had to leave me,
And all I really know is that you are gone, long gone
And everywhere I go I just feel lonely
You're the only life I've ever known
I guess you heard the highway calling
Because you packed up your things and headed for the coast
I had to fight the urge to follow
I guess some time away from me
is all you've ever really needed most

And tonight you know this whole damn town is empty
And I don't think I can take it anymore
So I'll sit here with my whiskey
And drink it 'till I just can't drink no more

A Late night phone call from the east coast
Well she said she'd had enough
She's comin' on back home
Well she went out there
Got a little crazy for awhile
If she leaves right now
Maybe she'll make Memphis by the dawn

And tonight you know this whole damn house is empty
Tomorrow will be like it was before
So I'll put away my whiskey
Guess I just don't need it anymore
Yeah I'll put away my whiskey
Guess I just don't need it anymore
no no no, no no no
