Gram Parsons - Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iub6PQxUJgQ
This song has been played by Merle Haggard, George Jones, and also non-country artists. I got a pic of my favorite whiskey - Glenlivet. As I get older, the bottle lets me down more and more...sorry, Mandy.

Well 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 couldn'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
But tonight the bottle let me down

Well I've always had a bottle I could turn to
And lately I've been turning every day
But tonight the wine don't take effect the way it used to
And now I'm hurting 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
But tonight the bottle let me down

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

1. Saw Emmylou in concert when she'd just released "Elite Hotel," her second album


Supposedly, the cover for "Grievous Angel" featured a photo similar to this one:



...but with Emmylou in the shot, and it was nixed by Parsons' widow, who was not an Emmylou Fan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gram_Parsons ).
