I used to be a big man in this town
Anyone can tell you I was known for miles around
I had money a family and a home so fine
Now I'm smaller than the bottle and weaker than the wine
I'm just a shell of the man I used to be I drown my hopes but not my memories
I've lost everything I owned and I'm sure to lose my mind
I'm smaller than the bottle and weaker than the wine
[ guitar ]
I haven't seen my children in a year or more
They wouldn't recognize me if I'd walk up to the door
Fot I can't go there when I'm drinking and that's all the time
I'm smaller than the bottle and weaker than the wine
I'm just a shell of the man...
I'm smaller than the bottle and weaker than the wine
