about

This one is about my Dad. When I was a kid we used to go into town once a month for Dinner out and I remember this one particular time went for Chinese food, to that one Chinese Restaurant every small town has. This one particular time, I'll always remember, when the server was taking my fathers drink order, he asked for a beer and the server asked if he wanted it in a glass or bottle and he promptly replied with "I was born by the bottle, I'll die by the bottle."

lyrics

Wont you turn to the bottle
Said you were born by it
Now you’ll die by it
So while you’re at it wont you buy us all a round.

You sat at your window
Watched as your Mamma left home
You turned to your Daddy
And he turned to Whiskey

When he died Christmas day
He left a long line of dreamers.

(Chorus)
Wont you turn to the bottle
Said you were born by it
Now you’ll die by it
So while you’re at it wont you buy us all a round.

Your dreams of wild horses
And riding the range
Have all been beer soaked and watered down
Washed clean away

And you’d turn in your saddle
For a bar stool and a stiff glass of rye.

(Chorus)

We’re a long way from where we started
From a large thinking man
To a skeleton of a dreamer
With a bottle in it’s hand

The good ol’ days are long gone now
But I still remember that man.

(Chorus)
