Story behind the song
This is also on Steelbeam's CD. In our version I'm really impressed by the sadness of the steel guitar and the bass line. We have found that in live situations this tune can be a really snappy two-step number.
You were the sweetest one I ever knew But the precious years with you were too few And now from time to time I remember you and cry And chase your memory with cheap whiskey Even now I love you still And I won't be surprised if I always will I know that every time your number's on my line That darlin' I'm still hung up on you. chorus I chase your memory with cheap whiskey I wash you right out of my mind I chase your memory forget all you were to me And I do it all with cheap whiskey What I learned of love I learned in your arms When I tasted of your special charms And though it's been years and I've cried far too many tears Somehow I wish that you'd come back to me But all you tell me now is "no" And all I get from you is cold And I know it isn't right but I get loaded every night And I do it all for you with cheap whiskey chorus
