Ol' George Stopped Drinkin' Today lyrics

Me and the bottle

Have always been friends

Oh we've had a few ol' nasty fights

But the bottle would always win

And when I go to answer that final curtain call

I can hear these words bein' whispered by all:

(chorus)

Ol' George stopped drinkin' today

They're all gonna gather round me

Lord I wish they could hear me say

No more income taxes

No more bills to pay

Ol' George stopped drinkin' today

Down in Mississippi

The highway patrol

Will read it in the paper

And say,
