Me and the bottle have always been friends
Oh, we've had a few ol' nasty fights but the bottle would always win
And when I go to answer that final curtain call
I can hear these words bein' whispered by all.

Chorus:
Ol' George stopped drinkin' today
They're all gonna gather round me, Lord, I wish they could hear me say
No more income taxes, no more bills to pay
Ol' Geroge stopped drinkin' today.

Down in Mississippi the highway patrol
Will read it in the paper and say, God Rest his soul
No more will he wobble down life's highway
'Cause George stopped drinkin today.

They'll say he had a problem dealing with his mind
He just couldn't seem to make it anywhere on time
But when the roll is called up yonder and heaven I know
You can bet the Possum is gonna show.

Chorus:
Ol' George stopped drinkin' today
They're all gonna gather round me, Lord I wish they could hear me say
No more income taxes, no more bills to pay
Ol' Geroge stopped drinkin' today.

Ol' Geroge stopped drinkin' today...
