How To Play

INTRO
 
B5
 
VERSE 1
 
B5                  E5
Thanks and praises, thanks to Jesus
F#5                    B5
I bet on the Bottle of Smoke
B5                 E5
I went to hell and to the races
F#5                     B5
To bet on the Bottle of Smoke
 
B5                      E5
The day being clear, the sky being bright
F#5                    B5
He came up on the left like a streak of light
B5                       E5
Like a drunken fuck on a Saturday night
F#5                   B5
Up came the Bottle of Smoke
 
CHORUS
 
B5             E5
Twenty-fucking-five to one
F#5                  B5
Me gambling days are done
B5                          E5
I bet on a horse called the Bottle of Smoke
F#5          B5
And my horse won
 
VERSE 2
 
B5                  E5
Stewards inquiries, swift and fiery
F#5                 B5
I had the Bottle of Smoke
B5               E5
Inquisitions and suppositions
F#5                 B5
I had the Bottle of Smoke
 
B5                   E5
Fuck the stewards, a trip to Lourdes
F#5                            B5
Might give the old fuckers the power of sight
B5                                   E5
Screaming springers and stoppers and call out coppers
F#5                              B5
But the money still gleams in my hand like a light
 
CHORUS
 
B5             E5
Twenty-fucking-five to one
F#5                  B5
Me gambling days are done
B5                          E5
I bet on a horse called the Bottle of Smoke
F#5          B5
And my horse won

VERSE 3
 
B5               E5
Bookies cursing, cars reversing
F#5                 B5
I had the Bottle of Smoke
B5                E5
Glasses steaming, vessels bursting
F#5                 B5
I had the Bottle of Smoke
 
B5           E5
Slip a fifty to the wife
F#5                  B5
And for each brat, a brand new five
B5                      E5
To give me a break on a Saturday night
F#5                      B5
When I had the Bottle of Smoke
 
CHORUS
 
B5             E5
Twenty-fucking-five to one

Me gambling days are done

I bet on a horse called the Bottle of Smoke
F#5          B5
And my horse won
 
VERSE 4
 
B5                   E5
Priests and maidens, drunk as pagans
F#5                    B5
They had the Bottle of Smoke
B5                E5
Sins forgiven and celebrations
F#5                    B5
They had the Bottle of Smoke
 
B5                 E5
Fuck the Yanks and drink their wines
F#5                    B5
The moon is clear, the sky is bright
B5               E5
I'm happy as the horse's shite
F#5                   B5
Up came the Bottle of Smoke
 
CHORUS
 
B5             E5
Twenty-fucking-five to one
F#5                  B5
Me gambling days are done
B5                          E5
