C
Thanks and praises
F         C
Thanks to Jesus
             F         C
I bet on the Bottle of Smoke
C
I went to hell
    F      C
And to the races
              F         C
To bet on the Bottle of Smoke
F
The day being clear
C
The sky being bright
   F              G
He came up on the left
       C
Like a streak of light
       C
Like a drunken f**k
     F        C
On a Saturday night
            F         C
Up came the Bottle of Smoke

F              C
Twenty f**king five to one
   C                 F
Me gambling days are done
  F                         C                    
I bet on a horse called the Bottle of Smoke
F      G     C
And my horse won


Am G  Am G Am over instrumental part


Stewards inquiries
Swift and fiery
I had the Bottle of Smoke
Inquisitions and suppositions
I had the Bottle of Smoke

f**k the stewards
A trip to Lourdes
Might give the old f**kers
The power of sight
Screaming springers and stoppers
And call out coppers
But the money still gleams in my hand like a light


Am G  Am G Am over instrumental part

Am Am C G Am G Am over other instrumental part

Am G  Am G Am over instrumental part

Bookies cursing
Cars reversing
I had the Bottle of Smoke
Glasses steaming
Vessels bursting
I had the Bottle of Smoke
Slip a fifty to the wife
And for each brat a crisp new five
To give me a break on a Saturday night
When I had the Bottle of Smoke
Priests and maidens
Drunk as pagans
They had the Bottle of Smoke
Sins forgiven and celebrations
They had the Bottle of Smoke

f**k the Yanks
And drink their wives
The moon is clear
The sky is bright
I'm happy as the horses sh*te
Up came the Bottle of Smoke
