Tennessee Whiskey Chord Chart


Welcome to my Tennessee Whiskey chord chart by Chris Stapleton. This is a very laid back song and has a pretty cool groove to it. The key to this song is dynamics and not killing to guitar. You have to be gentle with your playing. The chords are not too bad, mostly A, D and E but Bm pops in every once in a while. You can play and "easy version" of Bm using the diagram below.


This song is in 6/8 so we will be counting to 6. We are going to be accenting the 1st beat and the 4th beat on this song and playing VERY lightly on all the other strums. Or if you wanted to keep it very simple, just accent on the 1st and 4th beat.

Strum:

1 2  3 4  5 6

VERSE:

A                                                                    Bm
Used to spend my nights out in a barroom
D                                                            A   
 Liquor was the only love I’ve known
A                                                                                Bm

You’re as sweeeeet as strawberry wine
                     A                                   Bm
You’re as warm as a glass of brandy
                                   D                                             A
And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

I’ve looked for love in all the same old places

  Found the bottom of a bottle was always dry
A                                                                                        Bm
But when you poured out your heart I didn’t waste it
                              D                                                      A
‘Cause there’s nothing like your love to get me high, yeah
