Subject:  JUST WHISKEY UNDER THE BRIDGE
Message:  Last time I saw her it was at the airport
All those weeks ago
She was laughing, watching me wave
Ev'rything moved so slow...
She headed back to her own life
The one that didn't include me
I'd asked her to be my wife
But
She still needed to be free...

Now I'm holding my own nightly vigil
Wond'ring where or when
I killed her love, never saw it die
There's so much I've lost since then...

There's been so much whiskey passed under the bridge
I'm ready to take the leap
Washed away in a river of tears
At least when I'm done I'll get some sleep
It's just whiskey under the bridge
Nothin to worry about
Call it love I was in, call it life we're all in
At least now I know I'm out...

It started out at midnite
A hundred kisses of joy
It didn't take long for me
To prove a man could be a boy
There's something said for having known the lady
I wish it could have been more
But what I carry to the end
She touched me to my core...

There's been so much whiskey passed under the bridge
I'm ready to take the leap
Washed away in a river of tears
At least when I'm done I'll get some sleep
It's just whiskey under the bridge
Nothin to worry about
Call it love I was in, call it life we're all in
At least now I know I'm out...

There's been so much whiskey passed under the bridge

Washed away in a river of tears
At least when I'm gone I'll get some sleep
It's just whiskey under the bridge
Nothin to worry about
Call it love I was in, call it life we're all in
At least now I know I'm out...
