Underbar musik

Jag satt och lyssnade igenom gamla Jay Smith-uppträdanden från Idol när jag hittade ett klipp från Wallmans i Helsingborg. Det är Jay och hans syster Janna som sjunger låten Whiskey Lullaby, en låt jag inte hört förut. Men jag blev oerhört tagen av sången och av texten. Ni som följt mig några år vet hur min besatthet av Jay såg ut det året han var med i Idol, och jag hävdar än idag att han är den enda vinnaren som tagit mig med storm. Det fanns ingen som kunde mäta sig med honom det året han var med helt enkelt.

Lyssna på låten, och hoppas att ni finner den lika fin. Jag skrev ner texten under, för ibland är det svårt att höra texten.



She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart, he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night

He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away her memory
Life is short, but this time it was bigger
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
We found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said, 'I'll love her till I die.'
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
Until the night

She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away his memory
Life is short, but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby
