                                                An’ my belly……………







D                /c                  /b            D
An’ my belly is cravin’, I’ve got a shakin’ in my head
                /c          /b           A
I feel like I’m dyin’ an’ I wish I were dead
D                 /c              /b          A
If I live till tomorrow it’s gonna be a long time
D                /c        /b        D
For I reel an’ I fall an’ rise on codine
             /c         /b   F’ G’  F’  D     F’  G’  F’ D
An’ it’s real, an’ it’s real, one more time

When I was a young man I learned not to care
While whiskey in fronted I often did swear
My mother an’ 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 an’ it’s sometimes you think
That I’m a-livin’ my life with abandon to drink
An’ it’s real, an’ it’s real, one more time

Interlude: Only the chords of the descent have been noted, I haven’t tabbed the
beginning which is a variation of the D F’ G’ pattern with a steadier strumming.
These chord deviations are just my best guess; the descent fits in quite well,
though.. try it and see for yourself..

Stay away from the cities, stay away from the towns
Stay away from the men pushin’ the codeine ‘round
Stay away from the stores where the remedy is found
I’ll live a few days as a slave to codine
An’ it’s real, an’ it’s real, one more time


An’ my belly is cravin’, I’ve got a shaking in my head
An’ I’ve started heating whether my body said
Stave yourself with the grains of cocaine
An’ you’ll end up dead or you’ll end up insane
An’ it’s real, an’ it’s real, one more time

An’ my belly is cravin’, I’ve got a shakin’ in my head
I feel like I’m dyin’ an’ I wish I were dead
If I live till tomorrow it’s gonna be a long time
For I reel an’ I fall an’ rise on codine
An’ it’s real, an’ it’s real, one more time
             /c         /b   F’ G’  F’  D     F’  G’  F’ G’  F’ G’  G’ F’ D
An’ it’s real, an’ it’s real, one more time
