Cocaine Blues - Townes Van Zandt

Capo on 4th fret

  C                 E7                F

                    C                 G


C         E7
Cocaine, cocaine,
'Round my heart and runnin' 'round my brain,
C        G           C
Cocaine, aw, you ol' cocaine.

I woke up this mornin', Lord, I had a hunger pain.
And all I want for breakfast is my good cocaine,
Cocaine, aw you ol' cocaine.

Jump out of bed, Mama, run downtown;
Take along the money and look all around.
Find the man, the man that sells cocaine.

Come here, Mama, come here quick;
That ol' coke's got me and I'm feelin' sick.
Cocaine, aw you ol' cocaine.

Get out of here, Mama, I thought you understood;
You got no connections then you're no damn good.

Well, coke's for horses, Lord, it ain't for men.
They say it kills you, but they don't say when.

C'mon, Mama, let's rent us a boat.
We'll sail down that Gibraltar moat;
Shed a tear every time we pass Tangiers.

Cocaine, cocaine,
'Round my heart and runnin' 'round my brain,
Cocaine, aw, you ol' cocaine.

Agreed, awesome tab dude... I've put it into powertab and submitted it. Unfortunately it wouldn't let put me any comments, as I wanted to credit you for it. Just, if you see it don't want you to think i'm ripping you off.

No worries ccinz - I didn't create this tab. I had it on my computer from way back and someone asked for it in the forum I think. See the note at the bottom.
