BOTTLE OF WINE
(Tom Paxton)
Ramblin' around this dirty old town
Singin' for nickels and dimes
Times getting rough I ain't got enough
To buy me a bottle of wine
Bottle of wine, fruit of the vine
When you gonna let me get sober
Leave me along, let me go home
I wann'a go back and start over
Little hotel, older than Hell
Cold and as dark as a mine
Blanket so thin, I lie there and grin
Buy me little bottle of wine
CHORUS
Aches in my head, bugs in my bed
Pants so old that they shine
Out on the street, tell the people I meet
Won'ch buy me a bottle of wine
CHORUS
Teacher must teach, and the preacher must preach
Miner must dig in the mine
I ride the rods, trusting in God
And hugging my bottle of wine
CHORUS

    When i was a practicing dope fiend one of my prayers was that god would drop a bag or bottle down at those times when i was hurting.
    Well i eventually got clean and sober, and have been for the last 34 years.
    Any to makje a long story short, when i was about a year clean and sober i was waiting for a bus in tacoma when i look across the street an lo and bsehold there under a bus stop bench there is an unopene bottle of "mad dog" ( mogan david 2020)
    I just looked up and said "thanks, but you're a little late".
    Tell me god doesn"t have a since of humor.
    Every i hear that song i remember that day. Oh by the way my grandkids love the song too.
