                Hi all! This is not how jackson plays it, it is a simplyfied version acoustic guitar 
basic chords.

The chords are G, D, and C. You can add in solos between verses if you like, anything in 
scale of G works well. You can use any basic strumming rythms. It helps to get quieter 
slower towards the end of the piece.

It's a very free-flowing song, so it helps to experiment to get your own style of playing.

Intro: G D G C

G                   D

You take Sally, and I'll take Sue

G                         C
There ain't no difference between the two

G        D                     C
Cocaine, running all around my brain*

Headin' down Scott

And turning out Maine

Lookin for that girl

who sells cocaine

G                              D
Cocaine, running all around my brain

G           D
Oohh, mama, please come quick,

G                  C
That old cocaine's gonna make me sick

G        D                     C
Cocaine, running all around my brain*

G                      D
Late one night about a quarter past four

G                     C
Ladanyi knock down my hotel room door

G                                  D
"Where's the cocaine?" I said it's running all around my brain*


G                      D
Went to see the doctor down the hospital

         G                      C    (fade chord)
He said, "Son it says here your 27, but that's impossible"

G        D                           C
Cocaine, "You look like you could be 45."


(slow down on this next verse)

Now I'm losing touch with reality

I'm on my final blow

G                        C
It's such a fine line, I hate to see it go,

G        D                     C
Cocaine, running all around my brain

(optional) Short solo in G scale or G D G C,  then G7.
