Co'dine

Music and lyrics by Buffy Sainte-Marie


In my belly is craving, I got a shaking in my head
I feel like I'm dying and I wish I were dead
If I lived till tomorrow it's gonna be a long time
For I'll reel and I'll fall and rise on co'dine
And it's real, and it's real one more time

When I was a young man I learned not to care
Wild whiskey and from it I often did swear
My mother and father said whiskey is a curse
But the fate of their baby is many a times worse
And it's real, and it's real one more time

You'll forget your woman, you'll forget about men
Try it just once and you'll try it again
It's sometimes you wonder and it's sometimes you think
That I'm a-living my life with abandon to drink
And it's real, and it's real one more time

Stay away from the cities, stay away from the towns
Stay away from the men pushing the co'dine around
Stay away from the stores where the remedy is fine
Or you'll live a few days as a slave to co'dine
And it's real, and it's real one more time

In my belly is craving, I got a shaking in my head
And I started heeding what my buddy said
Stab yourself with the grains of cocaine
And you'll end up dead or you'll end up insane
And it's real, and it's real one more time

In my belly is craving, I got a shaking in my head
I feel like I'm dying and I wish I were dead
If I lived till tomorrow it's gonna be a long time
For I'll reel and I'll fall and rise up on co'dine
And it's real, and it's real one more time
And it's real, and it's real one more time
