I Need The Whiskey

I NEED THE WHISKEY - Written by Carroll Bryant 


All of my friends say that I should stop drinking 
But they don't feel the hurt 
I know they mean well, but they should start thinking
And looking out for themselves 
And if anyone knew the pain she put me through 
Is still what I feel today
Then they would understand why I need the whiskey 

Like a child needs a mother to always depend upon 
That was how much I needed her 
And the drinking helps to dissolve a memory 
Or maybe break her curse 
And if anyone knew the pain she put me through 
Is still how I feel today
Then they would understand why I need the whiskey 

I need the whiskey 
I need the whiskey 
Just as much as I needed that girl 
And I'll drink the whiskey
Yes, I'll drink the whiskey 
Until I have reached the end of the world 

And if anyone knew the pain she put me through
Is still what I feel today 
Then they would understand why I need the whiskey

It's killing me slowly but I really don't care
It's better than to feel the pain
And a life that was once filled with laughter and sunshine
Is now filled with sorrow and rain
And if anyone knew the shame that she put me through
Is still who I am today
Then they would understand why I need the whiskey 

And if anyone knew the pain she put me through
Is still what I feel today
Then they would understand why I need the whiskey

I need the whiskey
I need the whiskey
Just as much as I needed that girl

I need the whiskey
I need the whiskey
And I'll drink it to the end of the world
