Lyrics

Ain't No Whiskey in the Bottle

Verse
I never saw it coming, the day that you walked out
I was busy doing my thing, that's what I was about
You even tried to warn me, you said what you would do
Now I drink whiskey all night long, to get me over you
Chorus
Moonshine, white lightening, and mountain dew
Jim Bean, Jack Daniel's, and Iron Smoke too
When I get that lonesome feeling, it saves me every time
There's no whiskey in the bottle, and you're still on my mind
Ain't no whisky in the bottle, lead, lead, lead, lead
Ain't no whisky in the bottle, lead, lead, lead, lead
Ain't no whisky in the bottle, lead, lead, lead, lead
Ain't no whisky in the bottle n you're still on my mind
Lead
Verse
It's three in the morning, I can't get no sleep
Not one store is open, when I looked out in the street
If I'm gonna make it, only one thing I can see
I'll call my buddy Charlie, he'll bring a jug to me
Chorus
Moonshine, white lightening, and mountain dew
Jim Bean, Jack Daniel's, and Iron Smoke too
When I get that lonesome feeling it saves me every time
There's no whiskey in the bottle, and you're still on my mind
Bridge
Ain't no whisky in the bottle, lead, lead, lead, lead
Ain't no whisky in the bottle, lead, lead, lead, lead
Ain't no whisky in the bottle, lead, lead, lead, lead
Ain't no whisky in the bottle n you're still on my mind
On my mind, on my mind, on my mind, on my mind
