"Whiskey River" as written by and Johnny Bush....
Whiskey river, take my mind
Don't let her memory torture me
Whiskey river, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me

Whiskey river, take my mind
Don't let her memory torture me
Whiskey river, don't run dry
You're all I've got, take care of me

I'm drowning in a whiskey river
Bathin' my memory in mind in the wetness of its soul
Feeling the amber current flowing from my mind
And leaving a heart you left so cold

Whiskey river, take my mind
Don't let her memory torture me
Whiskey river, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me

I'm drowning in a whiskey river
Bathin' my memory in mind in the wetness of its soul
Feeling the amber current flowing from my mind
And leaving a heart you left so cold

Whiskey river, take my mind
Don't let her memory torture me
Whiskey river, don't run dry
You're all I got, take care of me

Whiskey river, take my mind
Whiskey river, take my mind

    General CommentGreat instrumental showcase number. The signature concert song for Willie and Family.
    Eight lines and just under sixty words; but each word so loaded with imagery and emotion.
    It's powerful poetry, even if it is just about gettin' drunk. Or is it?

    General CommentThis is the type of song when played at a bar, camping- sitting around a fire, backyard get together, etc, everyone starts singing. That's how much emotion is involved in this song!
