TONIGHT THE BOTTLE LET ME DOWN
WRITER MERLE HAGGARD

Tonight the bottle let me down
and let your mem'ry come around
The one true friend I thought I'd found
tonight the bottle let me down

Each night I leave the barroom when it's over
not feeling any pain at closing time
But tonight your mem'ry found me much too sober
I couldn't drink enough to keep you off my mind

Tonight the bottle let me down
and let your mem'ry come around
The one true friend I thought I'd found
tonight the bottle let me down

I've always had a bottle that I could turn to
and lately I've been turning every day
But the wine don't take effect the way it used to
And I'm a hurtin' in an old familiar way

Tonight the bottle let me down
and let your mem'ry come around
The one true friend I thought I'd found
tonight the bottle let me down

Tonight the bottle let me down
