Lyrics:
He says I’m sorry babe
Last night was just the whiskey talking
You know how when I get to drinking
I can sometimes lose my head
She puts down her coffee
And smiles to keep from crying
Picks up an empty bottle
Holds it out and says
In alcohol’s defense
It’s not the one that did the hurtin’
It just opened up a curtain
to show what you really feel
You just needed 90 proof
To give me your two cents
That’s how I see it
In alcohol’s defense
So you see I don’t believe you
When you say you didn’t mean it
Cause last night you were certain
And you told me to my face
And now you stumble in here
With alibis and bad excuses
Blaming booze for what the truth is
Trying to plead your losing case
So in alcohol’s defense
It’s not the one that did the hurtin’
It just opened up a curtain
To show what you really think
Those words don't come from nowhere
You had to feel that way to get there
And damn you it just ain't fair 
to blame it on the drink
Yeah you just needed 90 proof 
to throw out your two cents 
That's how I see it
In alcohol's defense
That's how it is
In alcohol's defense
Those words don’t come from nowhere
And damn you 
You just needed 90 proof
That’s how I see it
