"The Bottle Let Me Down" was both written and recorded by Merle Haggard. It was released in 1966 on his Swinging Doors album. During the same year, it reached the #3 spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.

This song tells the story of a man that drinks to relieve the pain of losing a woman. One night in particular, he can't seem to "drink enough to keep you off my mind".

Check out this exceptional live performance of this classic tune by Merle.

Lyrics

Each night I leave the bar room when it's over
Not feeling any pain at closing time
But tonight your memory found me much too sober
I can't drink enough to keep you off my mind

Tonight the bottle let me down
And let your memory come around
The one true friend I thought I'd found
Tonight the bottle let me down

I've always had a bottle I could turn to
And lately I've been turnin' everyday
But the wine don't take effect the way it used to
And I'm hurtin' in an old familiar way

Tonight the bottle let me down
And let your memory come around
The one true friend I thought I'd found
Tonight the bottle let me down
Tonight the bottle let me down
