  • Give me a bottle
    Of your very best
    'Cause I got a problem
    I gotta drink off my chest
    Gonna spend the night
    Gettin' down
    'Cause that woman that I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound

    [Chorus]
    That woman that I had had wrapped around my finger just come unwound
    She kicked me out of the house and tonight I'm whisky bound
    I'm gonna be the drunkest fool in town
    'Cause that woman that I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound

    Well she packed my bags
    And opened up the door
    I got a feelin'
    She don't want me around no more
    She caught me in a lie
    When I was messin' 'round
    And that woman that I had wrapped around my finger just come unwound

    [Chorus]
