Gene Watson - Bottle Of Tears Lyrics




Tricks, I've pulled some good ones in my time
And games, I've played 'em with the best of minds
I filled my pockets full of silver and gold
Then walked out on love when love left me cold
Now I'm a man in a bottle, a bottle of tears
Caught up in a heartache, drowning in fear
I'm a man in a bottle of tears
I battle my way to the top and I bottle my way to the bottom

Fame, I had my friends, I had it all
And what a shame, there's not a soul that I can call
They all love me when I'm acting the fool
But now they look at me like I'm no longer cool
'Cause I'm a man in a bottle, a bottle of tears
Caught up in a heartache, drowning in fear
I'm a man in a bottle of tears
I battle my way to the top and I bottle my way to the bottom
Oh, I battle my way to the top and I bottle my way to the bottom

Gene Watson Bottle Of Tears Comments
  1. Cody Young

    Gene Watson did not get near enough fame as he should have yet people like Keith Urban does. Screwed up

  2. Battleaxe HijuDoPar

    I Wish I had got the nerve to try out as a backup singer for Gene Watson years ago.  When I'm listening to his singing, I can harmonize.  I'm afraid I would lose my voice or get out of key these days for sure!

    Gene Watson has never sang a mediocre song, all his songs are top of the list. Few artists today will ever meet his standard for pure country ballads. mosrite60

    GerJoe Dev

    +Mittie Gilmer- Halfacre I agree with you 100%. He is just so good. I never get tired of listening to him. Have been lucky to have met him at the meet and greets after his concerts. He is a wonderful, caring man. His fans love him and he truly loves his fans.

    Tricks, I've pulled some good ones in my time

     I filled my pockets full of silver and gold
     Then walked out on love when love left me cold
     Now I'm a man in a bottle, a bottle of tears
     Caught up in a heartache, drowning in fear
     Im a man in a bottle of tears
     I battle my way to the top and I bottle my way to the bottom

  34. conditionofanonymit1

    absolutely beautiful song, wow how i miss hearing this man's music on the radio. today's country stations just seems to be losing to the pop music, shame. i haven't really listened to the radio music in years, cause even then it was going to the dogs, between maybe 2-3 songs, then you'd would have to listen to countless commercials, then a song are two, which most sucked anyway. but still, their oldies were the ones they kept playing last year. no class, and play the good stuff... COA ...

  35. Orbie Olsson

    Gene is the GREATEST male singer today!!!

  36. annababy4654
