  • Goin' down like a sunset
    Burnin' out like a cigarette
    Blowin' through the cash, through the past
    Drinkin' down that memory 'til there's nothin' left
    I could go on and on
    On why you're gone

    I could blame it on the whiskey
    I wouldn't blame you if you didn't even miss me
    Gave you a million reasons, girl, not to be with me (with me)
    Should've never let you go
    Should've never watched you go
    I could blame it on a good high
    Let it take the blame for why you told me, "Goodbye"
    Instead of missin' you and missin' all those good times (good times)
    Should've never let you go
    Should've never watched you go
    I could say I never knew
    I could drink around the truth
    But I can't blame it on you, yeah, yeah

    Trying to ride out the midnight
    Trying to fight through the daylight
    Wondering where you're at and just like that I'm looking back
    On what I had when you were mine
    I could go on and on (long, long time, yeah)
    On why you're gone

    I could blame it on the whiskey
    I wouldn't blame you if you didn't even miss me
    Gave you a million reasons, girl, not to be with me (with me)
    Should've never let you go
    Should've never watched you go
    I could blame it on a good high
    Let it take the blame for why you told me, "Goodbye"
    Instead of missin' you and missin' all those good times (good times)
    Should've never let you go
    Should've never watched you go
    I could say I never knew
    Yeah, I can drink around the truth
    But I can't blame it on you, yeah, yeah

    I could go on and on (long, long time, yeah)
    On why you're gone

    I could blame it on the whiskey
    I wouldn't blame you if you didn't even miss me
    Gave you a million reasons, girl, not to be with me (with me)
    Should've never let you go
    Should've never watched you go
    I could blame it on a good high
    Let it take the blame for why you told me, "Goodbye"
    Instead of missin' you and missin' all those good times (good times)
    Should've never let you go
    Should've never watched you go
    I could say I never knew
    Yeah, I can drink around the truth (long, long time, yeah)
    I could say I never knew
    Yeah, I can drink around the truth
    But I can't blame it on you, yeah, yeah Writer/s: Brian White, John Edwards, Kurt Michael Allison, Michael Tyler Spragg, Tully Kennedy
