The best I could do was piece together this excerpt from several sound samples found at Barnes & Noble:

WHISKEY HEAVEN
Written by Cliff Crofford, John Durrill, Samuel M. "Snuff" Garrett
Recorded by Fats Domino, Frankie Ford, and Kenny Wayne.

... drivin' me home once more.
There's an open Bible on the table,
An empty bottle on the floor.
Last night I thought I died and went to whiskey heaven.

You know the sun never shines in whiskey heaven.
It rains Jack Daniels all the time.
The price you pay ...

I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill
On Blueberry Hill where I found you
The moon stood still on Blueberry Hill
And lingered till my dreams came true

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be

Tho' we're apart you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be

Tho' we're apart you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

A different version as recorded by
Louis Armstrong with Gordon Jenkins' Orchestra and Choir - 1949


I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill
On Blueberry Hill when I found you
The moon stood still on Blueberry Hill
And lingered until my dreams came true

(The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be)

Though we're apart, you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill

(I found my thrill)
   Come climb the hill with me, baby
(on Blueberry Hill)
   We'll see what we shall see
(on Blueberry Hill)
   I'll bring my horn with me
(when I found you)
   I'll be wit' you where berries are blue
(the moon stood still)
   Each afternoon we'll go
(on Blueberry Hill)
   Higher than the moon we'll go
(and lingered until)
   Then, to a weddin' in June we'll go
(my dreams came true)
   Ba-ba-da-de-buzz-buzz va-de-n-da-day

The wind in the willow played (do you really love me)
Love's sweet melody (as I love you?)
But all of those vows we made (will you still remember)
Were never to be (when the night is through?)

Though we're apart, you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill

gee, now I know why "in heaven, there is no beer." It's not really cause "all our friends" on earth "will be drinking all the beer!" It's cause there is whiskey in heaven. Now, my question is this: Since I hate the taste of beer & whiskey, what might I get to drink in Heaven?

WHISKEY HEAVEN
As sung by Fats Domino on "Blueberry Hill" (2004)

Ev'ry afternoon when I wake up,
I say a little prayer and drink up,
And thank the Lord for drivin' me home once more.
There's an open Bible on the table,
An' a empty bottle on the floor.
Last night I thought I'd died and went to whiskey heaven.

CHORUS: You know the sun never shines in whiskey heaven.
It rains Jack Daniel's all the time.
They're the price you pay: hangovers ev'ry day,
Flyin' high with honky-tonk angels in whiskey heaven.

There's a run-down bar open all night
Where me an' my friends can get tight
Underneath those neon lights in whiskey heaven.
We drink a little beer and wine,
Stay drunk most of the time.
We're always raisin' hell all night in whiskey heaven.

CHORUS
Flyin' high with honky-tonk angels in whiskey heaven,
Flyin' high with honky-tonk angels in whiskey heaven.
