Lyrics

THE WHISKEY NEVER LIES

You said I was the one for you, I saw it in yer eyes
Your knight in armor shining bright, all others you despise
But when you had a shot or two you told me otherwise
And that’s when it occurred to me the whiskey never lies

You said you had it bad fer me, you'd take me to the moon
You said no other moved you so, no other made you swoon
But when the drink was in your blood you sang another tune
And that was when I learned the truth, the whiskey never lies

It never lies, it never lies
The whiskey never lies
It never lies, it never lies
The whiskey never lies
So when the bottle’s empty, I can see through your disguise
You better mind your tongue, because the whiskey never lies

You said you saw something in me, a diamond in the rough
You saw A rose amid the thorns, and that would be enough
But when you’d had the Jamieson’s you said some other stuff
And now I’ve heard the gospel, that the whiskey never lies

It never lies, it never lies
The whiskey never lies
It never lies, it never lies
The whiskey never lies
So don’t you go and try to pull the wool over my eyes
You better mind your tongue, because the whiskey never lies
