Devil in The Bottle' Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

There's a devil in the bottle, staring straight at me
Daring me to reach out, but I know he's testing me
If I take just one sip, I become that devil's son
Act a fool, sell my soul before God and everyone

Oh Lord, I know
I only hurt the ones I love

I'm walkin' down this dead end road, all alone and by myself
I wish I could blame the whiskey, but I can only blame myself
I'm running out of chances, and Lord that's such a crime
I got to find the answer before I lose my mind

Oh Lord, it's a cryin' shame
Oh Lord, I've caused so much pain
I only hurt the ones I love

There's a devil in a bottle that just won't let me be
So many times I've been hurtin' my soul and family
But I got free on the day I fought the
Devil in the bottle

The next time that old devil
Tries to get the best of me
I'll smash that bottle against the wall
And know I'm finally free

There's a devil in a bottle that just won't let me be
So many times I let him hurt me
I got free on the day I fought the
Devil in the bottle

Devil in the bottle
Devil in the bottle
