Lyrics: 

If I Were Whiskey
by Pam Grisham, July 2019

C G C
We both know… if I were a flower growing free
G C
We both know… you'd never look at me
G F
We both know… if I were the girl of your dreams
C G F C
It wouldn't mean a thing … no, it would not mean a thing…

G F
But if I were whiskey… if I were whiskey
C G C
You'd take me in your arms and hold me close
G F C G C
If I were whiskey...if I were whiskey...You would never, ever let me go

F C
You'd drink me up… I'd go down easy
F C
You'd feel my love… way down deep
F C
You'd come undone… every time I'd leave
F C
You'd be the one… beggin' me
Dm F C
If I were whiskey, if I were whiskey… if I were whiskey
***********Solo****************************************

Repeat Chorus
C G C
We both know… if I were a flower growing free
G C
We both know… you'd never look at me

Love the pace and phrasing of your your soulful emotional delivery. The melody is lovely. Such great metaphors. Great concept. Clever analogy with such a dose of honest observation. This is a really great song Pam!

Great idea for a song - personifying his real love. So so sad. Well done. Makin' me cry. Sad
