[Verse]
G6                                   Fmaj7
See that black boy over there, runnin' scared
                  G6      Fmaj7 
his ol' man is in a bottle.
G6                      Fmaj7
He done quit his 9 to 5 to drink full time
                   G6        Fmaj7
now he's livin' in the bottle.
G6                             Fmaj7
See that Black boy over there, runnin' scared
                   G6      Fmaj7
his ol' man got a problem       and its a bad one
G6                               Fmaj7
Pawned off damn near everything, his ol'
                     G6           Fmaj7
woman's weddin' ring for a bottle.


[Chorus]
Am7                        Gm7
And don't you think it's a crime
Fmaj7           E7#9
when time after time,
Am7                        Gm7
And don't you think it's a crime
Fmaj7           E7#9
when time after time, people in the bottle.

[Verse]
G6                             Fmaj7
See that sister, she look fine until she
                      G6             Fmaj7
started drinkin' wine from the bottle.     She told me
G6                            
her ol' man committed a crime
Fmaj7                      G6            Fmaj7
he's doin' time, now she's in the bottle.     I seen her
G6                            Fmaj7
out there on the avenue, all by herself
                 G6             Fmaj7
sho' needs help from the bottle.     I seen her
G6
Preacherman tried to help her out,
Fmaj7                                      G6

    Fmaj7
And turn to me and then said


[Chorus]
Am7                        Gm7
And don't you think it's a crime
Fmaj7           E7#9
when time after time,
Am7                        Gm7
And don't you think it's a crime

If you ever come look for me you know where I'm bound to be, in a bottle,     say it again
G6                           Fmaj7                  G6     Fmaj7
