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

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

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

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

Tonight the bottle let me down
Let your memory come around
The one true friend that I thought I'd found, tonight
