Empty Bottle 04:14
Well the Lord He’s gonna come down, gonna come down to save Save us from damnation, save us by grace By His mercy, his mercy and grace Said I’m going down, going down to see my Lord Down upon y knees to see my Lord You know I’ve seen that sunshine but I ain’t seen the Son The one who saved a dying man, who walked upon the flood Walked upon, walked upon the flood Said I’m going down, going down to see my Lord Down upon y knees to see my Lord With the empty bottle on the cold cold floor is where I rest my head If it weren’t for that friend of mine I might as well be dead, might as well, might as well be dead Said I’m going down, going down to see my Lord Down upon y knees to see my Lord

Gonna ride that train, gonna ride it slow until the state line passes by Gonna drink that bottle, gonna drink it down until the memories fade away. Well, out West is where that war was won see, I've been fighting my whole damn life So, I raise my flag and I pack my bags - 'bye, bye.' Said I ain't made of money honey you oughta know by now and I ain't gonna love you with you running all over town. So, I head out East for the city I'm gonna find me a cup of time you're gonna wake some day and wished I'd stayed but, the train is too far gone. Said I ain't made of money honey you oughta know by now and I ain't gonna love you with you running all over town. Well, you've been calling my name from dusk til dawn, still seems like you care But I played your games and you're still the same so I'm reaching for my gun Said I ain't made of money honey you oughta know by now and I ain't gonna love you with you running all over town.

Well there’s a war in my soul, yeah there’s a war in my soul And nobody knows, nobody knows, knows that there’s a war in my soul Oh devil let me be There’s a hurt going round, yeah there’s a hurt going round And everybody knows, everybody knows, knows that there’s a hurt going round Cause you can feel it when you bleed And you can hear it in the breeze You can see it in the cemetery trees, trees, trees Oh Father let us be Saying oh Lord what are we fighting for? Oh Lord, oh Lord, Oh Lord Oh my, am I out of my mind? Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord There’s a love who done me wrong, yeah a girl who done me wrong Always sang the same goddamn song Everytime that she done wrong Oh Mama let me be Saying oh Lord what are we fighting for? Oh Lord, oh Lord, Oh Lord Oh my, am I out of my mind? Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord There’s a girl on my mind, yeah there’s a girl on my mind She gives me sweet loving time to time Oh this girl on my mind She’s gonna set me free Saying oh Lord what are we fighting for? Oh Lord, oh Lord, Oh Lord Oh my, am I out of my mind? Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord

Sharp, sharp grind your teeth You don’t have to stay up this… Time, time ain’t always good Ever since I was a little bitty kid And I say... Would you write me if I was lost at sea Or am I gonna drown Lord, gonna drown? Take these riches that you gave to me Now I’m coming home, now I’m coming home Down, down. Down went the bottle mama It nearly killed your little boy Oh these crimes, crimes oh they’re leading me away Guess I was guilty from the very, very start And I say... Would you write me if I was lost at sea Or am I gonna drown Lord, gonna drown? Take these riches that you gave to me Now I’m coming home, now I’m coming home Lies, lies. Oh them dirty lies They kept me moving like those eastern sands I’m sorry mama that they made you cry But they are the sins that have mad me a man And I say... Would you write me if I was lost at sea Or am I gonna drown Lord, gonna drown? Take these riches that you gave to me Now I’m coming home, now I’m coming home
5.
I spent the devil's gold on whiskey and wine it chipped my heart and soul til there was nothing right But, I ain't gonna cry no more. Go on and scream and shout, go on, curse my name Tell all the pretty ones oh, that I was to blame. But, I ain't blaming you no more. Cause you don't even know my name... Cause all along, all along you were so far gone so, I'd rather be laying yea, I'd rather be laying alone
