Play Song in Capo 1 G


INSTRUMENTAL INTRO (PLAY LINES BELOW INSTRUMENTALLY) 

G                 C                       G
Now all my social friends look down their noses
        D                 D7             G
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose


VERSE ONE

G              C                  G
Once I lived a life...of wine and roses 
       D                              G
And I drank...a lot back then for one concern
                   C                 G
Success for me lay just...around the corner
             A                    A7              D
I thought my social friends would help me make me turn


CHORUS 

NC          G              C                G
But now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses
   D                             G
A victim...of the drunken life I chose
                  C                       G
Now all my social friends look down their noses
        D                 D7             G
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose


INSTRUMENTAL TURNAROUND (PLAY LINES BELOW INSTRUMENTALLY) 

 G                 C                      G
Now all my social friends look down their noses
        D                 D7             G
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose


VERSE TWO

G                            C                G         
I stood by and watched...the bottle take con-trol of me
    D                                 G
The turn I made was not...the one I'd planned
                         C             G
And I watched my social standings slip away from me
         A                  A7            D
While I watched the bottle slowly...take command


CHORUS

NC          G              C                G
But now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses
   D                             G
A victim...of the drunken life I chose
                   C                      G
Now all my social friends look down their noses
        D                 D7             G
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose

TAGG
        D                 D7             G    G
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose




NC: No Chord...Vocals are sung cold...without music.
