Bottle Let Me Down

This song is by Porter Wagoner and appears on the album The Bottom Of The Bottle (1968).

This song is a cover of "The Bottle Let Me Down" by Merle Haggard.
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
(Steel - el.banjo)
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...
Tonight the bottle let me down
