G                 C                       G 
Now all my social friends look down their noses 
        D                 D7             G 
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose 
 
VERSE ONE 
 

G              C                  G 
Once I lived a life...of wine and roses  
       D                              G 
And I drank...a lot back then for one concern 
                   C                 G 
Success for me lay just...around the corner 
             A                    A7              D 
I thought my social friends would help me make me turn

N C           G              C                G 
But now I'm paying for the days of wine and roses 
   D                             G 
A victim...of the drunken life I chose 
                  C                       G 
Now all my social friends look down their noses 
        D                 D7             G 
Cause I kept the wine and threw away the rose

VERSE TWO 
 

G                            C                G          
I stood by and watched...the bottle take con-trol of me 
    D                                 G 
The turn I made was not...the one I'd planned 
                         C             G 
And I watched my social standings slip away from me 
         A                  A7            D 
While I watched the bottle slowly...take command
