"The Whiskey Ain't Workin'" as written by Ronny Scaife and Marty Stuart....
There was a time, I could drink my cares away
And drown out all of the heartaches
That hurt me night and day
When the thought of you came crashing thruough
I'd have one more
But now the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

I need one good honky-tonk angel
To turn my life around
That's reason enough for me to lay
This ol' bottle down
A woman warm and willin', that's what I'm lookin' for
'Cause the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

They knew my name at every bar in town
And they knew all the reasons why I was comin' 'round, round, round, sing it Travis
'Cause in my mind, peace I'd find when they'd start to pour
But now the whiskey ain't workin' anymore, sing it, son

I need one good honky-tonk angel
To turn my life around
That's reason enough for me to lay
This ol' bottle down
Well, a woman warm and willin', lord, that's what I'm lookin' for
That's right, 'cause the whiskey ain't workin' anymore

Lord, the whiskey ain't workin' anymore
That's for sure
