AN OLD BEER BOTTLE (James Leisy / Charles Grean) The Mariners - 1954 The Stargazers - 1955 Also recorded by: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds; Uncle Don Ridgeway. As recorded by THE STARGAZERS: An old beer bottle Came floating on the foam An old beer bottle A thousand miles from home And in it was a message These words were written on Whoever finds this bottle Will find the beer all gone An old beer bottle (An old beer bottle?) Came floating on the foam An old beer bottle (Oh, an old beer bottle!) A thousand miles from home And in it was a message These words were written on Whoever finds this bottle Will find the beer all gone The beer all gone NB: There is a middle verse to this song, but it was omitted from The Stargazers' recording: Just like the empty bottle I drift from beer to beer They're not as sweet as your sweet kiss But a damn sight more sincere (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2012)
