Whiskey you’re no friend of mine
I trusted you and you robbed me blind
Of everything I had and you took your time
Whiskey you’re no friend of mine

You left me face down in the freezing rain
All I wanted to do was drink away my pain
I’ve got nothin’ left but my own shame
Whiskey you’re the one to blame
