Travis Tritt - The Whisky Ain't Workin'
Written By Marty Stuart & Ronny Scaife
There was a time(G A Bb) I could (C)drink my cares (G)away
(G)Drown out all of the heartaches(F# F G G#)
that (A*)hurt me night and (D7*)day.
when the (G)thought of you came crashin' through.
(C)I'd have one (G)more,
but now the whiskey ain't (D7)workin' anymore
(chorus)(walk up G to C)
I need (C)one good honky-tonk angel
to (G)turn my life around.
That's (G)reason enough(F#) for(F) me(E7) to lay (A7)this
Ol' bottle (D7)down
A(G)woman warm and willin'
that's (C7)what i'm lookin' (G)for
'cause the (G)whisky ain't (D7)workin' (G)anymore
Solo C G G D7 G
They knew my name (G A B C)at every bar in (G)town
and they knew all of the reasons (F# G G#)
(A7*)why I was comin' (D7*)'round,'round,'round.
'cause (G)in my mind (C)peace i'd find
(G)when they'd start to (C)pour
but now the (G)whiskey
ain't (D7)workin' (G)anymore
(C)Lord the whisky ain't (D)workin' (G)anymore
that's for sure!
