Emmylou Harris performs "Two More Bottles Of Wine"

"Two More Bottles of Wine" is a song written by Delbert McClinton, and recorded by American country music artist Emmylou Harris. It was released in April 1978 as the first single from the album Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town. "Two More Bottles of Wine" topped the U.S. country singles charts.

In the song, the narrator moves with his/her lover to Los Angeles, 1,600 miles away from their home, in search of success, but the lover abruptly leaves. The narrator is then left to fend for him/herself, eventually working in a menial job "sweeping out a warehouse in West L.A.", but eventually concludes it is all right because he/she still has "two more bottles of wine".

Emmylou Harris - Two More Bottles Of Wine Lyrics

 

We came out west together with a common desire 

The fever we had might've set the west coast on fire 

Two months later got trouble in mind 

Oh my baby moved out and left me behind 

But it's all right 'cause it's midnight 

And I got two more bottles of wine 

The way he left sure turned my head around 

Seemed like overnight she just up and put me down 

Ain't gonna let it bother me today 

I been workin' and I'm too tired anyway 

But it's all right 'cause it's midnight 

And I got two more bottles of wine

I'm sixteen hundred miles from the people I know 

I've been doin' all I can but opportunity sure come slow 

Well I'd be in the sun all day 

But I'm sweepin' out a warehouse in west L.A. 

But it's all right 'cause it's midnight 

And I got two more bottles of wine

I'm sixteen hundred miles from the people I know 

I've been doin' all I can but opportunity sure come slow 

Well I'd be in the sun all day 

But I'm sweepin' out a warehouse in west L.A. 

But it's all right 'cause it's midnight 

And I got two more bottles of wine

Yes, it's all right 'cause it's midnight 

And I got two more bottles of wine

Yes, it's all right 'cause it's midnight 

And I got two more bottles of wine
