Abner Jay – Cocaine Blues Lyrics

Cocaine, Cocaine
Running round my heart
And then running
Lord, it’s running
Round my brain

I woke up this morning
I had a hungry pang
All I wanted for breakfast
Was some good old cocaine

Come here, Momma
Momma come here quick
Ol’ cocaine got me, Momma
And I’m feeling sick

Cocaine, Cocaine
Oh it’s running round my heart
And then running
Lord, it’s running
Round my brain

[Harmonica solo]

[Spoken]
I crave cocaine, Hah!
But I can’t find nothin’ here in Atlanta
‘Cause them hippies done used it all up
Hippies comin’ in here from everywhere
New Orleans and Los Angeles and all
For they said they’s happiness is good here
Police here is easy-going
But I’m tired of waking up, feeling bad every morning
Drinking this old, bad liquor
I want something to pep me up
So I’m going back down to south Georgia
Down to (?) Fitzgerald
Go to ol’ Doctor Hale’s drug store
‘Cause ol’ Doctor Hale give me what I want
Like a doctor’s supposed to do
These old doctors in Atlanta come telling me ’bout L.S.D
I don’t want none of that kid stuff
I want the real thing
Cocaine
So if any y’all know of having any
Meet me under the clothes line
‘Cause that’s where I hang out

I went out to Fitzgerald
Down to Doctor Hale
He had a sign in his window
Said, “Have none – In jail”

I walked down Elm
I walked down main
Trying to find a woman who used cocaine

Get out of here, woman
I thought you understood
You ain’t got no connection, woman
You’re no use, and no good

Cocaine, cocaine
Oh it’s running round my heart
And then running
Lord, it’s running
Round my brain

Let it run, boy
[Harmonica solo]

Oh, the doctor said
It kill horses and men
He said it kill you
But they don’t say when

I walk down Elm
I walk down Main
Tryin’ to bum a dollar
Get me some cocaine

I got a nickel
Oh, you got a dime
I’ll buy the coke, honey
You buy the wine

Cocaine, cocaine
Lord, it’s running round my heart
And then running
Lord, it’s running
Round my brain

[Harmonica solo]
