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 memory 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 memory found me much too sober
I couldn't drink enough to keep you off my mind
Tonight the bottle

Tonight the bottle let me down
