Starts of with a D and sliding down a fret back and forth until you feel it is time to start the song.
Capo on 1
D G A C
I remember too many drinking songs
G A C G
When I broke the bottle the drink was all gone
D G A C G A
It’s a curse or worse the wine stained letters at the bottom of your purse
That say
D G
I miss hanging with you
D A
I miss laying with you
Bm G
I don’t want to grow old drinking
A G D
But I want to grow old drinking with you
D G A C
I know too many drinking songs
G A C G
When I broke the bottle the songs were all gone
D G A C G A
I’m uphill until I crack my skull on the wagon wheel
But still
D G
I miss driving to you
D A
I miss riding with you
Bm G
I don’t want to grow old drinking
A G D
But I want to grow old drinking with you
Chorus:
A G D
You bring the bottle
A G D
I’ll bring the glass
A G D
We’ll scrape the bottom
Bm Em F# (on E string) G
And swallow the bitters past
D Bm G
I don’t want to grow old just drinking
A G D
I could grow old drinking with you
Break (I think it repeats the last 2 lines of the chorus- without words)
D G A C
I remember too many drinking songs
G A C G
When I broke the bottle drink songs they both gone
D G A C G A
It’s a curse or worse the wine stained letters at the bottom of your purse
That say
D G
I miss hanging with you
D A
I miss laying with you
Bm G
I don’t want to grow old drinking
A G D
But I want to grow old drinking with you
A G D
You bring the bottle
A G D
I’ll bring the glass
A G D
We’ll scrape the bottom
Bm Em F# (on E string) G
And swallow the bitters past
D Bm G
I don’t want to grow old drinking
A G D
But I want to grow old drinking with you
D Bm G
I don’t want to grow old always drinking
A G D
I could grow old drinking with you
