Intro: BmBm chord   GG chord

            DD chord             GG chord                             BmBm chord
She put him out like the burning end of a midnight cigarette
     AA chord         DD chord        GG chord                                 AA chord
She broke his heart he spent his whole life trying to forget
    BmBm chord                          AA chord  DD chord
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
       BmBm chord                       AA chord   DD chord
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
         AA chord
Until tonight...


             DD chord                      GG chord          AA chord
He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
     BmBm chord                     AA chord   GG chord
And finally drank away her memory
DD chord                                   AA chord
Life is short but this time it was bigger
          BmBm chord                        AA chord        GG chord
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
      DD chord                                    AA chord
They found him with his face down in the pillow
        BmBm chord                           AA chord     GG chord 
With a note that said I'll love her til I die
      DD chord                             AA chord
And when we buried him beneath the willow
     GG chord                          BmBm chord
The angel's sang a whiskey lullaby
BmBm chord                                       GG chord
La la la la la la la,  La la la la la la la 
BmBm chord                                       GG chord
La la la la la la la,  La la la la la la la 


            DD chord          GG chord                               BmBm chord
The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself
     AA chord         DD chord         GG chord                                 AA chord
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
    BmBm chord                       AA chord  DD chord
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
         BmBm chord                       AA chord  DD chord
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
           AA chord
Until the night...


              DD chord                      GG chord          AA chord
She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
     BmBm chord                     AA chord   GG chord
And finally drank away his memory
DD chord                                   AA chord
Life is short but this time it was bigger
          BmBm chord                         AA chord        GG chord
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
     DD chord                                     AA chord
We found her with her face down in the pillow
BmBm chord                       AA chord        GG chord 
Clinging to his picture for dear life
     DD chord                               AA chord
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
       GG chord                          BmBm chord
While angel's sang a whiskey lullaby
BmBm chord                                       GG chord   BmBm chord  GG chord
La la la la la la la,  La la la la la la la

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
