D D7 G

Here I sit behind the bottle, like I've done so many times

A7 D

A-drinkin' to my new love, with my old love on my mind

D D7 G

That just ain't no way to shake it, no one else can take her place

A7 D

And the bottle holds the memory that a new love can't replace

D D7 G

The bottle holds the memory of the times we used to share

A7 D

She would not take me back again if I cried a million tears

D D7 G

So I smile and run my fingers gently on my new love's face

A7 D

While I hold the bottled memory that time could not erase

D D7 G

She don't realize I'm lonely, she thinks everything is fine

A7 D

Tell another joke bartender, Lord I'm about to lose my mind

D D7 G

I'm just goin' thru the motions, Lord I'll never win this race

A7 D

While I hold the bottled memory that time could not erase

D D7 G

Here I sit behind this bottle like I've done so many times

A7 D

Drinkin' to my new love with my old love on my mind

D D7 G

That just ain't no way to shake it, no one else can take her place

A7 D

Old Jerry Lee holds the memory that time cannot erase

A7 D A7-D

Jerry Lee the Killer's got your memory baby, and time will not erase
