Whiskey River, take my mind
Don't let her memory torture me
Whiskey River, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me

Whiskey River, take my mind
Don't let her memory torture me
Whiskey River, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me

I'm drowning in a Whiskey River
Bathin' my memory's mind in the wetness of its soul
Feeling the amber current flowing from my mind
To a warm and empty heart you left so cold

Whiskey River, take my mind (whiskey river take my mind)
Don't let her memory torture me (don't let her memory torture me)
Whiskey River, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me

Oh
Whiskey River, take my mind
Don't let her memory torture me
Whiskey River, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me

Whiskey River, take my mind
Don't let her memory torture me
Whiskey River, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me

Oh
Whiskey River, take my mind
Don't let her memory torture me
Whiskey River, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me

Whiskey River, take my mind
Don't let her memory torture me
Whiskey River, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me
