Bottle In My Hand  David Allan Coe

[D]Last week he spent his whole paycheck on [G]whiskey
And I know [D]Friday night he'll d[A7]o it all ag[D]ain[G]  [D]
And he'll[D] drink 'til h[G]e falls do[D]wn    and he’ll o[G]rder one more r[D]ound
and t[G]hen go h[D]ome with that bo[A7]ttle in his h[D]and[G]  [D]

and the only [D]thing I[G] can hold on[D]to is this [G]bottle in my [D]hand
I know I'll never ha[G]ve to sh[D]are it with any other [A7]man
I'm so g[D]lad you in[G]trodu[D]ced us and I'll d[G]o the best I c[D]an
T[G]o be f[D]aithful to this [A7]bottle in my h[D]and[G]  [D]

2nd Verse:
[D]She told George that changing diapers could [G]sure become a [D]drag
and to clean the house and cook for him was not her kind of[A7] bag
she s[D]aid he needed someone who would l[G]ove and underst[D]and
and t[G]hen she l[D]eft him with that b[A7]ottle in his h[D]and[G]  [D]

(repeat the chorus and upon outro)
[G]Yes we'll be t[D]hankful for this [A7]bottle in our ha[G]nd     [D]

(For the second verse, there’s a key change. The easy way to accomplish this is to
move the capo up to the 5th fret. This version IS correct! Play along with George
and Allen and see!)
