lyrics

I was the first one to love her
She was so gentle and sweet.
I promised her I'd stay forever
She layed her heart at my feet.

But I cound'nt let go of the bottle
And you know how the bottle gets you down.
Now I'd like to hold her and tell her I love her
But thanks to the bottle she's not around.

A friend said she had our baby
So beautiful, words can't describe.
If only I could have stopped drinking
I could be there by thier side

But now she'll never know me
She'll never know me
She'll just wonder why her daddy let her down.

I'd like to hold her and love her forever
But thanks to the bottle, she's not around
