​Memories Swim In Whiskey

This song is by Gary Stewart and appears on the Single She's Got A Drinking Problem (1981).

I swore I'd drown your memory
In the devil's amber brew
And wash away the living hell
I'm daily going through
I'd drink till I become a fool
And think you're not around
But memories swim in whiskey
They don't ever drown

Memories swim in whiskey
To punish those who think
That they can make them disappear
With one more round of drinks
You're always there just underneath
Each swallow you put down
Memories swim in whiskey
They don't ever drown

You'd think by now I've paid enough
To keep you in the past
But here you are as big as life
Warming up my glass
I hold my drink in my hand
Watch you whirl around
Cause memories swim in whiskey
They don't ever drown
