"30 days In the hole" as written by and Steve Marriott....
Roll my tape
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Thirty days,
Anyone doin' that one?
I'm doin' that one

30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole

All right all right all right all right, yeah

Chicago Green, talkin' 'bout Black Lebanese
A dirty room and a silver coke spoon
Give me my release, come on
Black Nepalese, it's got you weak in your knees
Sneeze some dust that you got buzzed on
You know it's hard to believe

30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
That's what they give you
30 days in the hole
I know

Newcastle Brown, I'm tellin' you, it can sure smack you down
Take a greasy whore and a rollin' dance floor
It's got your head spinnin' round
If you live on the road, well there's a new highway code
You take the urban noise with some dirt with poison
It's gonna lessen your load

30 days in the hole
That's what they give you now
30 days in the hole
Oh, yeah
30 days in the hole
All right, all right
30 days in the hole

What you doin' boy?
You here for 30 days
Get, get, get your long hair cut
And cut out your ways

Black Nepalese, it got you weak in your knees
Gonna sneeze some dust that you got busted on
You know it's so hard to please
Newcastle Brown can sure smack you down
You take a greasy whore and a rollin' dance floor
You know you're jailhouse-bound

30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
Oh, yeah
30 days in the hole
30 days, 30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole

    General Commentcept is "durban poison" not "dirt with poison"...Durban Poison is a strain of grass from South Africa...and I always thought it was "seeds and dust, that you got bust on"..but I could be wrong about that one. Im sure about the Durban Poison thing though.

    General Commentyou are kidding me? 6 comments....that's it? this is an absolute classic. i pray to the lords of rock to make me a star someday just so i can cover this song. of course it is about the drug scene in 70's rock. but that aside, it just completely rocks. such a great groove to it. the gov't mule cover was outstanding as well.

    General CommentThey're talking about getting busted for, in my guess, HASH. All the above listed names were common types of hashish around in the '70s, back when it was safe to travel the middle east w/o getting blowed up. Humble Pie rocks, and so does hashish!!! Thankfully, the medical pot scene is bringing the hash back.... HASH BASH baby!!!
