        Verse 1:

B         D              A
Alcohol my permanent accessory
B        D            A
Alcohol a party-time nessessity
B         D            A              F#m
Alcohol alternative to feeling like yourself
   D              E                    A E A E
Oh Alcohol I still drink to your health.

        Chorus:
A E       F#m         B            D
I love you more than I did the week before
A            E
I discovered Alcohol

        
   B             D                A
Forget the Cafe Latte screw the raspberry Ice Tea
   B         D               A
A Malibu and coke for you an gin and tea for me
    B           D                   A                          F #m
Alcohol your songs dissolve like my life never will
     D               E                 A E A E
When someone else is picking up the bill. . .

A E       F#m         B            D
I love you more than I did the week before
A            E
I discovered Alcohol

        F#m            D                 E            F#m
Oh Alcohol, would you please forgive me
D              E          F#m          D       E                    A         E
though I cannot love myself I'll use something else


A                     A/G#                   A/G           D                E
I thought that alcohol was just for those with nothing else 
   A
to do
A                             A/G#                      A/G                             D
I thought that drinking just to get drunk was a waste of 
 E                  A
precious booze
A                   A/G#                             A/G                                  D
But now I know that there's a time and there's a place 
            E              A
where I can choose
A                      A/G#                            A/G                            D        E
To walk the fine-line between self control and self abuse.

Solo:   B       D       A  X3
On the Third hold on D to get back to the Chorus A
        

        Chorus 3:
A E       F#m         B            D
I love you more than I did the week before
A            E         
I discovered Alcohol
A  E               F#m            B                  D
Would you please ignore, that you found me on the floor
A              E
trying on your camisole

F#m            D                 E            F#m
Oh Alcohol, would you please forgive me
        D              E          F#m          D       E                    A         E
though I cannot love myself I'll use something else


A-→E (repeat)
Will you please forgive me
