I thought the previous version was good but some chords were slightly wrong.

    A                 D
She unscrews the top of a new whiskey bottle 
    (D)                               A
And shuffles about in her candle lit hovel,
Like some kind of witch with blue fingers in mittens
     (A)                                        D 
She smells like the cat and the neighbours she sickens, 
The black and white t.v. has long seen a picture
    D7                      Em7 
The cross on the wall is a permanent fixture,
The postman delivers the final reminders 
     (A)                     G  F#m  Em D
She sells off her silver and poodles in china. 

 (D)                  Em7
Drinks to remember, I me and myself
     A                                           D
And winds up the clock and knocks dust from the shelf 
 (D)                    Em7
Home is a love that I miss very much
       A                         G  F#m   Em    D 
So the past has been bottled and labelled with love. 

During the war time an american pilot 
(D)                               A
Made every air raid a time of excitement, 
She moved to his prairie and married the texan 
    (A)                                    D
She learnt from a distance how love was a lesson, 
He became drinker and she became mother 
    D7                         Em7
She knew that one day she'd be one or the other, 
He ate himself older, drunk himself dizzy 
 A                         G   F#m  Em  D
Proud of her features, she kept herself pretty. 


He like a cowboy died drunk in a slumber 
(D)                                A
Out on the porch in the middle of summer,
She crossed the ocean back home to her family 
(A)                                      D
But they had retired to roads that were sandy, 
She moved home alone without friends or relations 
D7                       Em7
Lived in a world full of age reservation, 
On moth eaten armchairs she'd say that she's sod all 
    (A)                         G     F#m  Em  D
The friends who had left her to drink from the bottle. 

Chorus x2

    A                         G  F#m   Em   D
The past has been bottled and labelled with love
    A                                      G  F#m   Em   D
The past h________as been bottled..... and labelled with love

D (Fade out)

(I think it might play the chorus chords while fading. I end on D)
