Tonight The Bottle Let Me Down     (Haggard)

Each night I leave the barrom when it's over
Not feelin' any pain at closing time
But tonight your memory found me, much to sober
Couldn't drink enough to keep you off my mind.

Tonight the bottle let me down
And let your memories come around
The one true friend I thought I've found
Tonight the bottle let me down.

I've always had a bottle I could turn too
And lately I've been turning ev'ry day
That the wine don't take a laugh the way it used to do
Now I'm hurtin' an open million way.

Oh tonight the bottle...
