Intro:
G7    G7      G7      F
F E7 F F#dim F G7 G7 G7 F


       G7                                      G7
I said come here mama don't you take me for no fool
  G7                                F
I wouldn't quit you woman while the weather's cool
F           E7                F              F#dim
Around your back door, honey, I will make my creep
        F           G7        G7      G7     F
Just as long as you earn your two and half a week

      G7                                   G7
Now I got a gal she works in a rich folks' yard
    G7                             F
She brings me meals, she brings me lard
F             E7           F       F#dim
She brings me meals, she brings me lard
F              G7   G7         G7     F
She brings me everything that she can steal

Chorus 1:
          G7          G7
I call my Cora hey hey
G7                                            F
Along comes Sally with her nose all tore, the doctor says she can't sniff no more
       G7                                        G7
I said run here doctor, ringin' the bell there's women in the alley
F          G7    G7      G7   F
I'm simply wild about my good cocaine.


G7                                                     G7
You know the furniture man come to my door last Sunday morn'
G7                                      F
He asked me was my wife at home, I said no she's been long gone.
            G7                                          G7
And then he backed his truck right up to my door and he took everything I had
    F                     G7                  G7      G7       F
And carted on back to the furniture store I declare I did feel sad.
G7                                             G7
What in the world has anybody got to do with a furniture man?
        G7                                 F
If you got no dough to put up a show he'll take everything he can.
      G7                                 G7
He'll take everything from ugly plant, a skillet to a frying pan,
         F                G7                    G7             G7        F
If there ever was a devil without any horns, it must've been a furniture man

Chorus 2:          
          G7           G7
I call my Cora hey yeah
G7                                            F
Along comes Sally with her nose all tore, the doctor says she can't sniff no more
        G7                                      G7
He says cocaine's for horses, it's not for men, he says it's gonna kill me but he don't say when
    F      G7    G7      G7     F
I'm simply wild about my good cocaine.
