"Codine" as written by and Buffy Sainte Marie....
An' my belly is craving, I got a shakin' in my head
I feel like I'm dyin' an' I wish I was dead
If I lived till tomorrow that'd be a long time
For I'll reel and I'll fall and rise on codine
An' it's real, lord it's real, one more time

Stay away from the poolhalls, the taverns and towns
Stay away from the man pushin' that codine around
Stay away from the stores where the remedy is found
Much better in pain, than to be caught in codine

You'll forget your woman, you'll forget about man
Try it just once, an' you'll try it again
You'll forget about life, and you'll forget about time
And live all your days, a slave to codine
An' it's real, lord it's real, one more time
An' it's real, lord it's real, one more time
And stumble and fall, and rise on codine
