Performance Note:
Vince does it in Eb – so adjust ½ step to play along with the recording on “Next
Big Thing”…remember to adjust the lick below too.

[E] No man ever sounded so lonesome
[A] No man ever made you feel such [E] pain
[A] Lord, it must have been a real mean [E] bottle
That [B] made you sing that [E] way

[E] The stories you told about prison
[A] About a young man gone [E] astray
[A] Lord, it must have been a real mean [E] bottle
That [B] made you write the songs that [E] way

Chorus:
	[A] A real mean bottle
	Poured [E] straight from the Devil
	It's a miracle you're standin' here [B] today
	[A] A real mean bottle
	Made [E] you such a rebel
	[A] It must have been a real mean [B] bottle
	Made you sing that [E] way

Solo [E]  [A]  [E]    [A]  [E]
{Essentially over the verse 2X except for the [B]-[E] play major scale}

[E] You spent most all your life with strangers
[A] With a ramblin' fever in your [E] veins
[A] Hag, it must have been a real mean [E] bottle
That [B]  made you play the blues that [E] way

Chorus:
        [A] A real mean bottle
	Poured [E] straight from the Devil
	It's a miracle you're standin' here [B] today
	[A] A real mean bottle
	Made [E] you such a rebel
	[A] It must have been a real mean [B] bottle
	Made you sing that [E] way

Play this Lick and end.

in the final lines of the chorus, the chords need to be corrected to

[D] It must have been a real mean [A] bottle
Made you sing that [E] way
