Codine Blues Song Lyrics

 
The Charlatans
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Codine Blues An' my belly is craving, I got shakin' in my head

I feel like I'm dyin' an' I wish I were dead



If I lived till tomorrow it's gonna be a long time

For I'll reel and I'll fall and rise on codine

An' it's real, an' it's real, one more time

When I was a young man I learned not to care

Wild whiskey, confronted I often did swear

My mother and father said whiskey is a curse

But the fate of their baby is many times worse

An' it's real, an' it's real, one more time

You'll forget your woman, you'll forget about man

Try it just once, an' you'll try it again

It's sometimes you wonder and it's sometimes you think

That I'm a-living my life with abandon to drink

An' it's real, an' it's real, one more time

Stay away from the cities, stay away from the towns

Stay away from the men pushin' the codine around

Stay away from the stores where the remedy is found

I will live a few days as a slave to codine

An' it's real, an' it's real, one more time

An' my belly is craving, I've got a shakin' in my head

An' I've started heating whether my body said

Steady yourself with the grains of cocaine

An' you'll end dead or you'll end up insane

An' it's real, an' it's real, one more time

An' my belly is craving, I got shaking in my head

I feel like I'm dyin' an' I wish I were dead

If I lived till tomorrow it's gonna be a long time

For I'll reel and I'll fall and rise on codine

An' it's real, an' it's real, one more time

An' it's real, an' it's real, one more time

Tangerine Eyes

Please darling Tangerine Eyes sing a song for me,

One that I can hear all the day.

Oh and please darling Tangerine Eyes kiss my hand at dawn

By the bright and yellow corn of your hair.

Like a picture of the golden sunset you can make it real,

You know just how I feel all the time.

So please darling Tangerine Eyes whisper to the wind

We'll leave the rain behind and walk away.

We walk along the lonesome shoreline listening to the sea,

Talking to you and me about the sky

And we know even as we walk that way before the dawn

Our footsteps will be gone far away.

The seagulls ride the winds for you, can't you hear them cry,

Can't you hear them sigh out your name?

Oh please darling Tangerine Eyes sing a song for me

One that I can hear

So I feel alright

In the big start studded night of my dreams.
