Johnny Cash – When Uncle Bill Quit Dope

Vahva kuvaus kokaiiniriippuvuudesta. Bill-eno läpikäy kylmän kalkkunan päästäkseen siitä irti.

C F C
Well Uncle Bill was my Mothers Brother, tall lanky man
C
But somewhere back in Uncle Bill’s life, he took to sniffing cocaine.
C F C
I’d find him out in the back yard, sitting against a tree.
C F C
His eyes bugged out in a cocaine stare, And his mind in a cocaine dream.
C F C
Well one fall day when Uncle Bill was having a cocaine fit,
C G F C
He said Louise this coke’s no good and I’ve made up my mind to quit.
C G F C
Now you take this key and I’ll go upstairs and then you lock the door,
C G F C
And Lord I swear I wont come down, till I don’t want dope no more.

Chorus:
C G F C
Well he stomped the floor and he beat the door and he moaned a mournful cry.
C G F C
When the last cocaine went through his brain we thought he’d surely die.
C G F C
He yelled and he cussed and he fell on the floor and we almost gave up hope
C G F C
As long as I live I wont forget when Uncle Bill quit dope.

C F C
Well for the first few hours we heard not a sound, upstairs was quiet and still.
C F C
and then all of a sudden we heard a shriek of pain from Uncle Bill.
C F C
He bounced out of bed and across the room, I heard him break a chair.
C F C
And then another scream louder than the first as he ripped out a hunk of his hair.
C F C
My Mother kissed us all that night, as brother and I lay in bed.
C F C
We wondered if poor old Uncle Bill was dieing or already dead
C F C
But all night long we listened to him as he raved pleaded and called.
C F C
And I swear I heard his finger nails tearing the paper off the walls. Chorus:

C F C
After fourteen days and nights of hell, it grew quiet over head.
C F C
And I peered past mother, as she unlocked the door expecting to find him dead.
C F C
But to my surprise there was Uncle Bill, as shiny as a brand new dollar.
C F C
His hair was combed and his beard was gone, he’d grown two inches taller.
C F C
In his old blue suite and his patterned shoes, he was quite a sight to see.
C F C
The light was back in his deep blue eyes, he turned to mother and me.
C F C
He said Louise I’ve been through hell and I nearly went insane.
C F C
But I finally beat the devils habit, I beat the demon cocaine.

Sanni – Kokaiini

Noh joh… Sanni rinnastaa Kokaiini-biisissä rakastumisen ja huumeiden käytön.

“Uudet viivat, uusi nousu
Sä oot climax ja lasku
Hallusinaatio ja ekstaasi
Loputon jatkumo, näytä parhaasi
Sä oot kuin kokaiini, pidät mut lämpimänä
Sä oot vahvin huumeeni, hitaasti tapat mut
Tapat mut, tapat mut

Veressä kiehuu, kun sä kosketat
Rinnassa riehuu, kun irrotat
Suhun koukussa, en pääse pakoon
Pidät kasassa, sun takii hajoon
Sä oot kuin kokaiini, pidät mut lämpimänä
Sä oot vahvin huumeeni, hitaasti tapat mut
Tapat mut, tapat mut

Sun huulet, mun niska
Annan kemikaalien potkia
Joo, mä lopetan taas huomenna
Mut luulen, et tarviin neuvoja
Kun nää varjot katseen alla, huudan taas uutta annosta

Uudet viivat, uusi nousu
Sä oot kuin kokaiini, pidät mut lämpimänä
Sä oot vahvin huumeeni, hitaasti tapat mut
Tapat mut, tapat mut
Hitaasti tapat mut
Tapat mut, tapat mut”
