but they are not integral to the song I provided sketches but they are not actually
in the song)

G                                        C
Last week he spent his whole paycheck on whiskey
           G                   D          G
And I know Friday night he'll do it all again
         G                                     C              G
Oh he'll drink 'til he falls down     and then order one more round
                           D             G
and then go home with that bottle in his hand

             G                              C            G
and the only thing I can hold onto is  This Bottle In My Hand
I know I'll never have to share it  with any other man
        G                               C            G
I'm so glad you introduced us and I'll do the best I can
                       D             G
To be faithful to this bottle in my hand

N/C       G                                C              G
She told George that changing diapers could sure become a drag
and to clean the house and cook for him was not her kind of bag
     G                              C                G
she said he needed someone who would love and understand
                                 D             G
and then she left him with this bottle in his hand

(repeat the chorus and upon outro)
G                              D              G
Yes we'll be thankful for this bottle in our hand
