Well I'm sittin' here a glass so near filled with my one concern
Oh bottle you've done led me to the point of no return
You took away my happy days my life's a total wreck
You took the only things I owned so bottle take effect
Take effect and take away these blues that drive me wild
Take effect make me forget these troubles for a while
Then just lead me to those lights of blue on the corner of regret
In some barroom I'll lose my gloom so bottle take effect
[ piano ]
You took away my fortune while I drank away my pride
Humiliations my misfortune and there's no place left to hide
The best place is the gutter there I won't need respect
Cause when in Rome you'll do as the Romans do oh bottle take effect
Take effect and take away all these blues...
