Does no good to talk to her.
I tell 'er it's poison and she says, "Sure."
Looks off in the distance for a while.
She always shouts about it.
I know she can't do without it.
Whiskey, is a part of her lifestyle.

But I don't wanna' lose her,
Just 'cause she's a boozer.
I've learned to love her laughter
And her smile.

Whiskey, Stay Away from my woman.
Whiskey, don't take me.
Whiskey, Stay Away from my woman.
I don't wanna' lose her.
Now you know how much she means to me.

Once she had a pretty way,
Of smilin' sweetly.
Then she'd say,
"Will I be a' seein' you tonight?"
Later that night I'd go over.
We'd walk out in a field of clover,
Drink and talk about the stars and life.

Then we did that barroom scene.
The things that we did when we'd drink,
Made a mass confusion of our life.

(Repeat Chorus)

Alcohol kills 250,000 Americans a year, more if you blame the thousands of deaths caused by the madness alcohol brings on people, making them murder, drive recklessly, fall and kill themselves, asphyxiate in their own vomit, and so on.
This is a pretty good little song about a guy not wanting to see his woman slowly deteriorate and debilitate into sickness and death, the slow death of alcoholism.
