Cheap Whiskey
Recorded by Patty Loveless
Written by Jim Rushing and Emory Gordy

G Em
He sits all alone in his easy chair
G D7 G
Staring back on his lost yesterdays
Long before he encountered the bottle
G D7 G
And the demons that drove her away

In his hand he is holdin' her photograph
G D7 G
Her image all tear stained and worn
Tonight he's embracin' reality
G D7 G
And he curses the day he was born

And the darkness still echoes her warning
C G Em
You can't have two loves in your life
Now the things that will haunt him till the day that he dies
G D7 G
Is the smell of cheap whiskey and the sound of goodbye

Since the hour she left he's been sober
G D7 G
Each breath that he draws makes him think
By the love of his life gone forever
G D7 G
When he traded her love for a drink

repeat #3 x2
