D                /c                  /b            D
Aní my belly is craviní, Iíve got a shakiní in my head
                /c          /b           A
I feel like Iím dyiní aní I wish I were dead
D                 /c              /b          A
If I live till tomorrow itís gonna be a long time
D                /c        /b        D
For I reel aní I fall aní rise on codine
             /c         /b   Fí Gí  Fí  D     Fí  Gí  Fí D
Aní itís real, aní itís 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 aní father said whiskey is a curse
But the fate of their baby is many times worse
Aní itís real, aní itís real, one more time

Youíll forget your woman, youíll forget about man
Try it just once aní youíll try it again
Itís sometimes you wonder aní itís sometimes you think
That Iím a-liviní my life with abandon to drink
Aní itís real, aní itís real, one more time

Interlude: Only the chords of the descent have been noted, I havenít tabbed the
beginning which is a variation of the D Fí Gí 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 pushiní the codeine Ďround
Stay away from the stores where the remedy is found
Iíll live a few days as a slave to codine
Aní itís real, aní itís real, one more time


Aní my belly is craviní, Iíve got a shaking in my head
Aní Iíve started heating whether my body said
Stave yourself with the grains of cocaine
Aní youíll end up dead or youíll end up insane
Aní itís real, aní itís real, one more time

Aní my belly is craviní, Iíve got a shakiní in my head
I feel like Iím dyiní aní I wish I were dead
If I live till tomorrow itís gonna be a long time
For I reel aní I fall aní rise on codine
Aní itís real, aní itís real, one more time

Aní itís real, aní itís real, one more time
