The Bottle For The Cross
Written and recorded Hank Locklin

G C
I had everything this world has to offer
D7 G
And I held all the pleasures by the pail
C
I thought that I would never have a need
D7 G
In my heart I believed I’d never fail

C G
I was drinking my way down to eternity
D7
Down in the deepest darkness I was lost
G C G
But my Lord set me free completely gave me victory
C G D7 G
I traded the bottle and the world for the cross

C
I was living a life unbelieving
D7 G
Everyday closer to the end
C
A sinner filled with pride and unsaved
D7 G
I was tied to the world full of sin

Repeat #2

C
There never was a time when I was happy
D7 G
Drinking was my daily delight
C
I almost lost my home and my family
D7 G
I was turning to the bottle day and night

Repeat #2

C G D7 G
I traded the bottle and the world for the cross
