Whiskey Is The Devil, Daughter

lyrics

Oh you're living in the shadow, daughter
Of a heritage you don't understand
Oh our branches may reach up to heaven
But our roots dig where they can

Oh our river, it's running wicked, yeah I watched it
Oh it's troubling all of your friends
Baby, you watched them just sink in the water
Then you dove, you dove right in

Whiskey is the devil daughter
But you sinned, you sinned
Whiskey is the devil daughter
But you, you, you sinned

Oh what I need is the garden, and I promise
That I would do anything just to get back in
Don't tell me the devil brought you the apple, daughter
When it's you, it's you bit in

Whiskey is the devil daughter
But you sinned, you sinned
Whiskey is the devil daughter
But you, you, you sinned

Oh what I need is the garden, and I promise
That I would do anything just to get back in
Don't tell me the devil brought you the apple, daughter
When it's you, it's you bit in

Whiskey is the devil daughter
But you sinned, you sinned
Whiskey is the devil daughter
But you, you, you sinned

Mieka Pauley Brooklyn, New York
