I've got this weakness for whiskey and women.
It's somethin' I just can't control.
I've tried hard to shake it without any luck,
It keeps burnin' deep in my soul.
I thought you could change things and while you were with me,
I never loved no one but you.
But it's gonna take more that whiskey and women,
To make me forget that we're through.

Baby, sometimes at night when I reach out to touch you,
I wake up chilled to the bone.
There are so many things I can't get used to,
'Specially being alone.
I built my whole world around you and now that your gone,
I don't know what to do.
But it's gonna take more than whiskey and women,
To make me forget that we're through.

I found me a woman to lay down beside me,
She offered her body and soul.
And I took them hoping for some silly reason,
She'd help me regain self control.
I left like a thief in the night,
When the first light of dawn,
Turned the gray skies to blue.
I sobered up knowing she'd never be able,
To make me forget that were through.

Baby, sometimes at night when I reach out to touch you,
I wake up chilled to the bone.
There are so many things I can't get used to,
'Specially being alone.
I built my whole world around you and now that your gone,
I don't know what to do.
But it's gonna take more than whiskey and women,
To make me forget that we're through.

WHISKEY & WOMEN
Written by: David Allan Coe
Performed by: David Allan Coe-19781
Appears on: Human Emotions-1978,23 The Best of David Allan Coe-1984 &
Human Emotions/Spectrum VII (Double CD)-1995.


1Background vocals by Lea Jane Berinati, Janie Fricke, Yvonne Hodges,
Ginger Holladay, Robert Landrum and Harold Smallets.

2Transcribed from the track on this album.

3In the liner notes for this album, Coe writes, "Dedicated to my wife...
Dear Wife, You left me taking our daughter and my dog. You left behind a
painting or two including the first painting you ever did... You will find
me as hard to forget as I have you, because I am everywhere... radio...
magazine... newspaper... TV... even the movies... No, my love, you will
never forget me. And I shall never forget either. That's Human Emotions.
Side one is songs I wrote before you left me ("Would You Lay with Me (in a
Field of Stone)," "If This Is Just a Game," "You Can Count on Me,"
"Mississippi River Queen" and "Tomorrow is Another Day"). Side two is songs
I wrote after you left. I decided to call side one 'Happy Side,' because I
was happy then. We had our new house, our daughter was in school, and you
were 'the happiest I've ever been in my life,' as you told my parents the
day before you drew all the money out of the bank and left... Side two is
called 'Su-i-cide.' The first three songs ("Human Emotions," "(She Finally
Crossed Over) Love's Cheating Line" and "Whiskey & Women") I wrote before
I knew who you were with and where you had gone. The last two songs ("Jack
Daniels If You Please" and "Suicide") I wrote when I got your 'notice of
divorce proceedings...' There's an empty feeling in my chest as I write
these words -- I love you. How silly it seems to say that now... Love, David.
PS: Give my love to our daughter." From all accounts this isn't some stunt
Coe tried for publicity or a joke. Most sources confirm the veracity of the
events and the letter.
