A good song off a great album :)

Intro: Bm

	    D
She put him out
         G                             Bm
Like the burning end of a midnight cigarette
     A          D
She broke his heart
   G                                A
He spent his whole life trying to forget

   Bm                       
We watched him drink his pain away
    D
a little at a time
       Bm
But he never could get drunk enough
   D
to get her off his mind
     A
Until the night

             D             
He put that bottle to his head,
                A
and pulled the trigger
    Bm                         G
And finally drank away her memory
D                                    A
Life is short, but this time it was bigger
          Bm                                G
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
   D                                    A
We found him with his face down in the pillow
       Bm                                  G
With a note that said I'll love her till I die
    D                                A
And when we buried him beneath the willow
   G                           Bm
The angles sang a whiskey lullaby
Bm
La la la la la la la
Bm                G
La la la la la la la

Repeat La's

            D
The rumors flew
     G                                 Bm
But nobody knew how much she blamed herself
     A          D
For years and years
     G                                A
She tried to hide the whiskey on her breath

    Bm
She finally drank her pain away
   D
a little at a time
        Bm
But she never could get drunk enough
   D
to get him off her mind
     A
Until the night

              D
She put that bottle to her head 
                 A
and pulled the trigger
Bm                       G
Finally drank away his memory
D                                     A
Life is short, but this time it was bigger
         Bm                                  G
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
D                                       A
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Bm                                G
Clinging to his picture for dear life
   D                                 A
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
         G                        Bm
While the angles sang a whiskey lullaby
Bm
La la la la la la la
Bm                 G
La la la la la la la

Repeat La's and fade out
