And my belly is craving
I got a shakin' in my head
Feel like I'm dyin' and I wish I was dead
If I lived till tomorrow that'll be a long time
But I'll reel and I'll fall and rise on cod'ine
And it's real, but it's real, one more time

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

Stay away from the cities, stay away from the towns,
Stay away from the men pushin' that cod'ine around.
Stay away from the stores where the remedy is found,
For better your pain than be caught on cod'ine,
And it's real, but it's real, one more time.

You'll forget you're a woman, you'll forget about men
Try it just once, and you'll try it again
You'll forget about life, you'll forget about time
And you'll live off your days as a slave to cod'ine
And it's real, but it's real, one more time

But if I die tomorrow, still one thing I've done
I'd heeded the warning that I got when I was young
Well my one satisfaction it comes when I think
That I'm living my life without bendin' to drink
And it's real, but it's real, one more time
And it's real, but it's real, one more time
And it's real, but it's real, one more time
