Song name!?

I'm looking for the name of the song. I don't remember much of the lyrics. It's a country song, I looked on the top 100 for country on itunes and I don't think I can find it. One like in the song, the only on, I remember went: "and keep your eye off that (or the) bottle.... and do (or whatever fits) something nice (whatever fits) for someone." I know its not much but if you can help me out here I will be very happy!

Update:

Not dust on the bottle. Sorry for my bad spelling right now, on a laptop keyboard and not used to it.

Update 2:

It's a slower country song 2!

Update 3:

It was not that song but it was by Van Zant so points to you! Thanks so much. It was "Help Somebody" by Van Zant.

    Maybe it's "Help Somebody if you Can" by VanZant

    here are the lyrics and a link to the video.

    Well, Grandaddy was a hillbilly scholar, blue collar of a man.

    He came from the school where you didn't need nothin',

    If you couldn't make it with your own two hands.

    He was backwoods, backwards, used words like:

    "No Sir," "Yes, Ma'am," "By God," "Be darned,"

    "Hell yeah, I'm American."

    And all the years he walked this earth,

    I swear all he did was work.

    He said: "The devil dreams on an idle horse,

    "So you listen to me squirt.

    "Don't get too high on a bottle,

    "And get right with the Man.

    "Fight your fights, find a grace,

    "And all the things that you can change,

    "And help somebody if you can."

    Now Granny said: Sonny, stick to your guns,

    "If you believe in something, no matter what,

    "'Cause it's better to be hated for who you are,

    "Than be loved for who you're not.

    She was five feet of concrete

    New York born an' raised on a slick city street.

    She'd cold-stare you down, stand her ground,

    Still kickin' and screamin' at 93.

    I remember just how frail she looked in that hospital bed:

    Takin' her last few breaths of life, smilin' as she said:

    "Don't get too high on a bottle,

    "Just a little sip ev'ry now and then.

    "Fight your fights, find a grace,

    "And all the things that you can change,

    "And help somebody if you can.

    "And get right with the Man.

    Instrumental Break.

    (C'mon now.)

    "I never let a cowboy make the coffee."

    Yeah, thats what Granny always said to my Grandad.

    And he'd say: "Never tell a joke that ain't that funny more than once."

    "And if you wanna hear God laugh, tell Him your plans.

    "Don't get too high on a bottle,

    "Get right with the Man, son.

    "Fight your fights, find a grace,

    "And all the things that you can change,

    "And help somebody if you can.

    "And get right with the Man."

    Yeah.

    (Get too high.)

    (Help somebody if you can.)

    And get right with the Man.

    if you could Make it with your own two hands

    He was backwoods, backwards, used words like no sir, yes m'am,

    by God be darned, hell yeah I'm American!

    And all the years he walked this Earth, I swear all he did was work

    He said the devil dreams on an idle horse, so you listen to me squirt!

    Don't get too high on the bottle And get right with the Man

    Fight your fights, find the grace in all the things that you can't change

    And help somebody, if you can

    Now Granny said son, I'd stick to your gun and said,

    if you believe in something no matter what

    Cause its better to be hated for who you are than beloved for who you're not

    I am not really sure what the song but it's not "Dust on the Bottle" By Brooks and Dunn since they didn't do that song.It's

    Dust On The Bottle" by David Lee Murphy.
