Lyrics

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
I used to spend my nights out in a barroomLiquor was the only love I’ve knownBut you rescued me from reaching for the bottleAnd you brought me back from being too far gone
You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskeyYou’re as sweet as strawberry wineYou’re as warm as a glass of brandyAnd I stay stoned on your love all the time
I look for love in all the same old placesFound the bottom of the bottle always dryBut when you poured out your heart, I didn’t waste it‘Cause there nothing like your love to gettin’ me high
You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskeyYou’re as sweet as strawberry wineYou’re as warm as a glass of brandyAnd I stay stoned on your love all the timeI stay stoned on your love all the time
