George Jones – Tennessee Whiskey Lyrics

I used to spend my nights out in a bar room
Liquor was the only love I’ve known
But you rescued me from reaching
For the bottle
And you brought me back from
Being too far gone

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You’re as sweet as strawberry wine
You’re as warm as a glass of brandy
And I stay stoned on your love all the time

I looked for love in all the same old places
Found the bottom of the bottle always dry
But when you poured out your heart
I didn’t waste it
‘Cause there nothing like your love
To get me high

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You’re as sweet as strawberry wine
You’re as warm as a glass of brandy
And I stay stoned on your love all the time
I stay stoned on your love all the time
