[A] [D]  
She u[D]nscrews the top of a new whiskey bottle
And [(D)]shuffles about in her candle lit h[A]ovel,
Like [(A)]some kind of witch with blue fingers in mittens
She s[(A)]mells like the cat and the neighbours she s[D]ickens,
The [D]black and white t.v. has long seen a picture
The [D7]cross on the wall is a p[Em7]ermanent fixture,
The p[A]ostman delivers the final reminders
She s[(A)]ells off her silver and [G]poo[F#m]dles [Em]in [D]china.
D[(D)]rinks to remember, I [Em7]me and myself
And w[A]inds up the clock and knocks dust from the s[D]helf
H[(D)]ome is a love that I mi[Em7]ss very much
So the [A]past has been bottled and [G]lab[F#m]elled [Em]with l[D]ove.
[D]During the war time an american pilot
[(D)]Made every air raid a time of exci[A]tement,
She [(A)]moved to his prairie and married the texan
She [(A)]learnt from a distance how love was a l[D]esson,
[(D)]He became drinker and she became mother
She [D7]knew that one day she'd be [Em7]one or the other,
He [A]ate himself older, drunk himself dizzy
P[A]roud of her features, she [G]kept[F#m] hers[Em]elf [D]pretty.
[D]He like a cowboy died drunk in a slumber
[(D)]Out on the porch in the middle of s[A]ummer,
[(A)]She crossed the ocean back home to her family
[(A)]But they had retired to roads that were s[D]andy,
She [(D)]moved home alone without friends or relations
[D7]Lived in a world full of [Em7]age reservation,
On [A]moth eaten armchairs she'd say that she's sod all
The [(A)]friends who had left her to [G]drink [F#m]from [Em]the [D]bottle.
Chorus x2
The [A]past has been bottled and [G]lab[F#m]elled [Em]with [D]love
The [A]past h________as been bottled..... and [G]lab[F#m]elled [Em]with [D]love
D (Fade out)
(I think it might play the chorus chords while fading. I end on D)
