Ship In The Bottle

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album The Lonesome in Me (1970).

As I sit at this bar and drink it over
Thoughts of you keep running through my mind
So I build myself a ship inside this bottle
Sail away leave all my blues behind

Ship in the bottle, don't you fail me
I'm drowning in my sorrow can't you see
Ship in the bottle, please sail me
Where that rising tide of hurt can't get to me

I board my ship and sail all through my bottle
My friends say it's through water on my brain
But I'm in high spirits even though they're liquid
I've finally found the way to ease my pain

Ship in the bottle, please sail me
I'm drowning in my sorrow can't you see
Ship in the bottle, don't you fail me
Keep that rising tide of hurt away from me
Keep that rising tide of hurt away from me
