     (C) Once I lived a life of (F) wine and (C)Roses.
     I (G7) drank a lot back then for one (C) concern.
     Success for me lay (F) just around the corner.  I
     thought my (G7) social friends would help me make
     the (C) turn.

     CHORUS:  (C) Now I'm paying for the (F) days of
     wine and (C) and roses.  A (G7) victim of the
     drunken life I (C) chose.  Now all my social
     (F) friends look down their (C) noses.  Cause I
     (G7) kept the wine and through away the (C) rose.

     Interlude:  (C, F, C, G7, C)

     (C) I stood by and watched the (F) bottle take
     (C) control of me.  The (G7) turn I made was not
     the one I (C) planned.  And I watched my social
     (F) standing slip (C) away from me.  While I
     (G7) watched the bottle slowly take (C) command.
     (repeat chorus)

Great song and great job. I have been singing this song for years and the only thing I do differently is on the last line of the verse's use D instead of G7,then G to G7 to C to start the chorus.It makes the vocals work better.
