10. Traitor Whiskey

Lyrics

The note described his new romance                                                                               
And all his things were gone
I took the whiskey from the cupboard                                                                            
I was barely hanging on
One glass led to another                                                                                                                     
I drank that bottle dry
But it didn’t stop me missing
That bastard and his lies
 
Traitor whiskey, turncoat wine                                                                           
I thought they would help me
But they let me down each time
And added to my misery
When my heart was on the line
Traitor whiskey, turncoat wine
 
I headed to a honkytonk                                                                                                                     
To get him off my mind
I tried to lose his memory                                                                                                                  
By drowning it in wine
I swear that man was fading                                                                                                          
With each and every sip
But morning found me waking
With his name upon my lips
 
Traitor whiskey, turncoat wine                                                                           
I thought they would help me
But they let me down each time
Now I’m toking up for breakfast
And glad to leave behind
Traitor whiskey, turncoat wine
Traitor whiskey, turncoat wine
 
So alcohol wasn’t going to do it for me
And I needed some other way to make it through
Listen up cool cats and kittens
I’ve got a piece of advice for you
 
If you’re feeling down
Cause someone’s kicked you to the curb
Leave the wine alone
And enjoy the blessed herb
With puffs of marijuana
At the start of every day
You won’t give a damn
About the one who walked away
 
Traitor whiskey, turncoat wine
I thought they would help me
But they let me down each time
Now I’m toking up for breakfast
And glad to leave behind
Traitor whiskey, turncoat wine
Traitor whiskey, turncoat wine
