BLUES IN A BOTTLE (JACK DANIELS BLUES) by Joel Sattler

 

A table in back
and Miz Daniels’ son Jack
just one more
is all that I lack

I got the blues in a bottle
and I’m taking all my troubles downtown 

Since she went away
got nothing to say
gone and left me
and that is the way [it is]

Stay drunk day and night
that isn’t a crime
when you’re locked in a room
with nothing but time

Someday I’ll get straight
get off of my ass
I guess that’s the day
I run out of cash


I got the blues in a bottle
and I’m taking all my troubles downtown
