​This Bottle (In My Hand)

This song is by David Allan Coe and George Jones and appears on the album I've Got Something to Say (1980) by ​David Allan Coe.

Original video
Dedication: They told me George Jones was full of whiskey and he couldn't sing anymore. They said he was skinny and sickly looking and he was through. I told 'em he was one of my best friends and whiskey could never make Gorge Jones quit singing. George was on the wagon when we done this song but he sings like he wishes he had a drink.

George Jones:
Last week, he spent his whole paycheck on whiskey
I know Friday night, he'll do it all again
Oh, he'll drink 'til he falls down
Then he'll order one more round
And then go home with that bottle in his hand

David Allan Coe:
And the only thing I can hold on to
Is this bottle in my hand
I know I'll never have to share it
With any other man
I'm so glad you introduced us
And I'll do the best I can
To be faithful to this bottle in my hand

David Allan Coe:
She told George that changing diapers could sure become a drag
And to clean a house and cook for him is not her kind of bag
She said he needed someone who would love and understand
Then she left him with that bottle in his hand

George Jones:
And the only thing I can count on now
Is this bottle in my hand
I'll know I'll never have to share it
Oh, with any other man
I'm so glad you introduced us
Oh, I'll do the best I can
To be faithful to this bottle in my hand

Both:
Yes, we'll be faithful to this bottle in our hands
