    Lyrics

    Thanks and praises
    Thanks to Jesus
    I bet on the Bottle of Smoke
    I went to hell
    And to the races
    To bet on the Bottle of Smoke

    The day being clear
    The sky being bright
    He came up on the left
    Like a streak of light
    Like a drunken fuck
    On a Saturday night
    Up came the Bottle of Smoke

    Twenty fucking five to one
    Me gambling days are done
    I bet on a horse called the Bottle of Smoke
    And my horse won

    Stewards inquiries
    Swift and fiery
    I had the Bottle of Smoke
    Inquisitions and suppositions
    I had the Bottle of Smoke

    Fuck the stewards
    A trip to Lourdes
    Might give the old fuckers
    The power of sight
    Screaming springers and stoppers
    And call out coppers
    But the money still gleams in my hand like a light

    Bookies cursing
    Cars reversing
    I had the Bottle of Smoke
    Glasses steaming
    Vessels bursting
    I had the Bottle of Smoke
    Slip a fifty to the wife
    And for each brat a crisp new five
    To give me a break on a Saturday night
    When I had the Bottle of Smoke
    Priests and maidens
    Drunk as pagans
    They had the Bottle of Smoke
    Sins forgiven and celebrations
    They had the Bottle of Smoke

    Fuck the Yanks
    And drink their wives
    The moon is clear
    The sky is bright
    I'm happy as the horse's shite
    Up came the Bottle of Smoke
