Hey y'all!  Today's song really has no real meaning about my life other than the fact that I really love the song! I've been listening to more alt.country and folk than anything else right now, so thought I'd reflect that a bit this week. Is it sad that for quite a while, all of the songs that my daughter loved that I played in the car all had to do with drinking? Oops. She one time asked me if the line, "If I'd quit drinking sooner, I'm sure I wouldn't have gone that far," meant that the singer had drived too far. I said that yes, that's what it meant. Though now that I think about it, does that mean I was telling her that the singer was driving drunk? Oh goodness! Really didn't think that one through too well! Laura Cantrell - Whiskey Makes You Sweeter

"Well, the whiskey makes you sweeter than you are. If I'd quit drinkin' sooner, I'm sure I wouldn't have gone that far. Now the haze has lifted I can see. That the whiskey makes you sweeter than you could ever really be.

I started slow and steady, I went from cola to a beer. I made a resolution: From the liquor I'd steer clear. When I saw you there, Somethin' inside of me switched off. And when I switched to the whiskey, Then I knew that I was gone.

'Cause the whiskey makes you sweeter than you are. If I'd quit drinkin' sooner, I'm sure I wouldn't have gone that far. Now the haze has lifted I can see. That the whiskey makes you sweeter than you could ever really be.

"Sweets for a sweetheart." That is what you said to me, As you handed me a shot glass, And drank down hungrily. I was lost in dreams of sweet things, Runnin' through my head. If it wasn't for the whiskey, Well, I'd have run away instead.

'Cause the whiskey makes you sweeter than you are. If I'd quit drinkin' sooner, I'm sure I wouldn't have gone that far. Now the haze has lifted I can see. That the whiskey makes you sweeter than you could ever really be.

Oh yeas, the whiskey makes you sweeter than you could ever be to me."
