Whiskey angel, whiskey angel, where did you come from?
Was it heaven smilin’, or hell opening wide?
You’re all I ever wanted, yet now I must say goodbye, oh goodbye.
You washed away my sorrows, you saved me from myself
You washed away my troubles, you layed them on the shelf
Your love flowed like mercy, runnin’ through my veins
From the first taste you held me, the pleasure in my pain
Who knew love could hurt you, drown you in its rain
Tell you lies smiling’, leave you with the shame
And now that love has faded, there’s a tremble in your voice
Just like angels singin’, because they have no choice
