Whiskey Lullaby
Brad Paisley

This is the full tab, absolutely has to be correct. This is the first tab that 
I have ever tabbed out, and I have been playing for 8 years, so please correct 
me if I am wrong. 

I also added the chords to the Intro right above the tab. That pull-off sounds 
better than the Open picking at that last G. 

This is for finger-picking. If you are struming the chords, it sounds really 
cool to hammer on and off still yet at the A, G, A part. Try it. 

If you have any more questions email me at micah87@bellsouth.net.


h= hammer on
p= pull-off

It's kind of hard to put the words right up with the song, but for your
conveinence, I am posting the lyrics along with this tab, the words are
rather (Post-tabulous). . . or maybe not, lol, here you go.

She put him out like the burning end of a midnight cigarette 
She broke his heart he spent his whole life trying 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 A Until tonight... 

Chorus 1: 
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 
They found him with his face down in the pillow 
With a note that said I'll love her til I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow 
The angel's sang a whiskey lullaby
La la la la la la la, La la la la la la la 
La la la la la la la, La la la la la la la 

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 A Until the night... 

Chorus 2: 
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 angel's sang a whiskey lullaby 
La la la la la la la, La la la la la la la (repeat to fade)
