Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down--Waylon Jennings
written by Merle Haggard
From the album "I've Always Been Crazy"
Thanks to CowboyUp for the basic chords.   While I don't agree with Waylon's "flip
of the bird" to the Hag near the end of the song, I have to admit, he sings the hell
out of this one.   And few can play steel like Ralph Mooney.

NOTE: On the D...I play a pattern of D, D/A, and D/F#, but it's not necessary.

INTRO: D  D/A  A  D  A  D/A

     D
Each night I leave the barroom when it's over
                                  A
Not feeling any pain at closin' time
But tonight your memory found me much too sober
                            A7             D
I couldn't drink enough to get you offa my mind


CHORUS:
D
Tonight the bottle let me down
                      A
Let your memory come around
The one true friend that I thought I'd found
                           D
Tonight the bottle let me down

SOLO

I've always had a bottle that I could turn to
Lately I've been turnin' every day
But the booze don't take affect the way it used to
I keep a hurting in old familiar ways

CHORUS 

(Ralph Mooney!)
(Eat your heart out, Haggard!)

SOLO

CHORUS (fade)
