The Bottle

Intro: A7  C  G  A7 

D            G                   D 
Just because I drink more than I used to 
                   A7               D     D7 
Doesn't mean that you're the one to blame 
G                                 D 
Just because I come home a little later every night 
E7                              A7-C-G-A7 
Doesn't mean that I'm living in shame 

          D             G                 D 
Lord it's not you, it's me that should be sorry 
               A7              D       D7 
I've neglected you more than I should 
G                           D 
You say we can work it out together 
E7                        A7-C-G-A7 
It would be so easy if we could 

    G                             D 
But how can I explain the way I'm feelin' 
                    A7              D       D7 
I've always kept my feelings locked inside 
     G                        D 
It's easier to tell them to a stranger 
    E7                                  A7-C-G-A7 
And drinking seems to soothe my wounded mind 

      D        G                  D 
Maybe someday I'll be the way you want me 
                       A7           D       D7 
It seems I've let this bottle take command 
G                                    D 
You say you don't think it holds the answer 
       A7                         A7  C  G  D 
Oh but sometimes it helps me be a man
