Lyrics

Blame it on the Whiskey - lyrics & music by Carolyn Messina

I would sit at the bar
stare at you from afar
soaking up courage shot after shot just to say hi

you told me your name
I was never the same
I dove in head first, never fearing the worst
it was love at first sight

Blame it on the whiskey. Blame it on the beer.
Some say you're charming and I'm so insecure.
Mix brave in a bottle with lonely and blue
There's no one to blame but the whiskey and you.

We leaned on the wall.
the world felt so small
With your silly grin and that dimpled chin
you had it all
But what did I know
about taking it slow
when the heart's in control, you did what you're told and fall

And blame it on the whiskey. Blame it on the beer.
Some say you're charming and I'm so insecure.
Mix brave in a bottle with lonely and blue
There's no one to blame but the whiskey and you.

Morning comes and brings with it regret and sorrow
wondering if you’re even gonna call tomorrow
weeks go by without a word
bartender says haven't you heard
that player plays the game so well
you're not the only girl who fell

I could sit at the bar
stare at you from afar
And wonder what life would be like if I'd hadn’t met you at all

But what did I know about taking it slow
when the heart's in control, you did what you're told and fall.

And blame it on the whiskey. Blame it on the beer.
Some say you're charming and I'm so insecure.
Mix brave in a bottle with lonely and blue
There's no one to blame...

But I blame it on the whiskey. Blame it on the beer.
Some say you're charming and I'm so insecure.
Mix brave in a bottle with lonely and blue
There's no one to blame but the whiskey and you.
There's no one to blame but the whiskey and you.
