D                /c                  /b            D
An my belly is cravin, Ive got a shakin in my head
                /c          /b           A
I feel like Im dyin an I wish I were dead
D                 /c              /b          A
If I live till tomorrow its gonna be a long time
D                /c        /b        D
For I reel an I fall an rise on codine
             /c         /b   F G  F  D     F  G  F D
An its real, an its real, one more time

When I was a young man I learned not to care
While whiskey in fronted I often did swear
My mother an father said whiskey is a curse
But the fate of their baby is many times worse
An its real, an its real, one more time

Youll forget your woman, youll forget about man
Try it just once an youll try it again
Its sometimes you wonder an its sometimes you think
That Im a-livin my life with abandon to drink
An its real, an its real, one more time

Interlude: Only the chords of the descent have been noted, I havent tabbed the
beginning which is a variation of the D F G pattern with a steadier strumming.
These chord deviations are just my best guess; the descent fits in quite well,
though.. try it and see for yourself..

Stay away from the cities, stay away from the towns
Stay away from the men pushin the codeine round
Stay away from the stores where the remedy is found
Ill live a few days as a slave to codine
An its real, an its real, one more time


An my belly is cravin, Ive got a shaking in my head
An Ive started heating whether my body said
Stave yourself with the grains of cocaine
An youll end up dead or youll end up insane
An its real, an its real, one more time

An my belly is cravin, Ive got a shakin in my head
I feel like Im dyin an I wish I were dead
If I live till tomorrow its gonna be a long time
For I reel an I fall an rise on codine
An its real, an its real, one more time
             /c         /b   F G  F  D     F  G  F G  F G  G F D
An its real, an its real, one more time
