ROUND AND ROUND THE BOTTLE (Susan Taylor) Tanya Tucker - 1976 Grandma was a pretty thing when she was just sixteen She fell in love with a full grown man who ran off with a barroom queen My Daddy was just a baby then, but he remembers to this day His old man stumblin' down the street till his Mama made him look away Round and round the bottle goes, where it stops nobody knows Many are the good souls left alone Round and round the bottle spins, till it knocks you down again And the victims of the drunkard wait at home Daddy worked the oil fields all along the east Tex line Then he moved us all to Tulsa where his oil wells changed to wine But I remember one Christmas evening, oh, Santa never showed And Mama cried herself to sleep that night and my Daddy came home with a load Round and round the bottle goes, where it stops nobody knows Many are the good souls left alone Round and round the bottle spins, till it knocks you down again And the victims of the drunkard wait at home My Grandmas's dead and my Daddy's drunk somewhere in Oklahoma And Mama moved back to Texas long ago, yeah Look at me, here I am, my Daddy's only daughter Sharin' little secrets with a man I barely know, oh Round and round the bottle goes, where it stops nobody knows Many are the good souls left alone, yeah Round and round the bottle spins, till it knocks you down again And the victims of the drunkard wait at home (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2013)
