  • She left me right outside El Paso
    Leavin scottsdale from a show
    She said our lives are just to crazy
    With us both out on the road

    Im wonderin what shes doin now
    With her friends out on the town
    Is she wonderin how im makin out
    With every drink I wash her down
    Tennessee whiskey tell me did ya miss me
    She broke my heart when she left me
    And now I need you to protect me

    Sweet Tennessee whiskey ya ya ya
    Sweet Tennessee whiskey ya yeah

    By the time we got to Austin
    I was damn near insane
    I hadnt heard from her in three days
    I kept waitin' on that phone to ring

    Im wonderin what shes doin now
    With her friends out on the town
    Is she wonderin how im makin out
    With every drink I wash her down
    Tennessee whiskey tell me did ya miss me
    She broke my heart when she left me
    And now I need you to protect me

    Sweet Tennessee whiskey ya ya ya
    Sweet Tennessee whiskey ya yeah

    Making a double of my bottle of rum
    Feelin' lonely in this crazy crowd
    Forget the memories,
    Try and make my peace and get up off the ground

    Sweet Tennessee whiskey, tell me did ya miss me
    She broke my heart when she left me
    And now I need you to protect me

    Sweet Tennessee whiskey
    Tell me did ya miss me
    She broke my heart when she left me
    And now I need you to protect me

    Sweet Tennessee whiskey ya ya yeah
    Sweet Tennessee whiskey ya ya yeah

    I cant say its the ending
    'Cause ill see her when I get home Writer/s: BILL SATCHER, MICHAEL HOBBY
