song lyric with cocaine in.

Recommended Posts

I think you're talking about Cocaine by Humble Pie, or perhaps a cover of it. Not sure when it was released though.

I'll see if I can find lyrics or a video.

edit: couldn;t find anything, so here's a temporary audio file: Link

How about this one by Jackson Browne, circa 1976....

Cocaine

You take sally and Ill take sue

Their aint no difference between the two

Cocaine, running all round my brain

Headin down scott, turnin up main

Looking for that girl that sells cocaine

Cocaine, runnin all round my brain

Late last night about a quarter past four

Ladanyi come knockin down my hotel room door

Wheres the cocaine--

Its runnin all round my brain

I was talking to my doctor down at the hospital

He said, son, it says here youre twenty-seven,

But thats impossible

Cocaine-- you look like you could be forty-five

Now Im losing touch with reality and Im almost out of blow

Its such a fine line-- I hate to see it go

Cocaine, runnin all round my brain

Here's a youtube... Cocaine ~ Jackson Browne

[smallest] from the wikipedia article [/smallest] Cocaine Blues :

.. Yet another song named Cocaine Blues exists -- arguably the most recorded -- that is recognizable for the refrain "Cocaine run all 'round my brain" and the lyric "Cocaine's for horses Lord it ain't men/They tell me it'll kill me but they won't say when." This is referred to the "traditional version" of Cocaine Blues by many people in the music business ... It originates from The Rev. Gary Davis, from whom Dave Van Ronk and others learnt it. Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Bob Dylan, Hoyt Axton, David Bromberg, Nick Drake, Jackson Browne, Keith Richards and many others have recorded this song. Found on his Live at the Old Quarter album, Townes Van Zandt's version features a slightly different refrain, but still has the "horses" line.

I remember a famous version from years before Jackson Browne's, but I can't for the life of me remember the artist.

Well guys, I am v impressed on your cocaine knowledge. It was all a hazy memory from my youth but I heard this song only once from a jukebox in Butlins of all places so I imagine it was a single or b side. The guy seemed to almost say the line rather than sniff... sorry!! rather than sing it.

Check out Dave Van Ronk's version of "Cocaine Blues," on which I heard the "mucous membrane" reference long before I heard Jackson Browne's version. (Looking at a number Google! links to "Cocaine Blues" popped up the Dave Van Ronk quote.) :stars:

MMM!! Possibly could be Dilliger. I was only 10 at the time. Thanks guys and gals.

If you were staying at Butlins when you heard it, I'm guessing you're a UK citizen, right? (Tourists from abroad didn't tend to stay at Butlins in the 70s) Most of the other "Cocaine running around my brain" suggestions have been predominantly blues-orientated artists, whereas the Dillinger one is distinctively rockers' reggae, and the vocal is what one might described as spoken-word , rather than sung, and in an unmistakeably Jamaican accent. The other main "hook" is the "a knife, a fork, a bottle and a cork, that's the way you spell "New York" line, which features repeatedly throughout. Does that not ring any bells?

It's not inconceivable that you would hear Dillinger's "Cocaine In My Brain" on a Butlin's jukebox. It was released as a single*, and was a kind of "cult hit" in the UK. My introduction to it was at the weekly "alternative disco" at Scunthorpe Baths Hall, circa 1981. Happy days....

*More recently- I'd estimate about 15 years ago, when banging techno remixes of old classics were de rigueur- "Dillinger's "Cocaine" was re-released as a 12" single as a shredding techno remix version, with the brilliant reggae original included on the b-side.

Well yes I am A uk citizen and Butlins Minehead was the place. I remember it was 1973 because I purchased my 3rd 45 on that very holiday (Alright Alright Alright by Mungo Jerry) The Cocaine song in question was played constantly by the bigger boys as they played pool in the cafe. Memories O sweet memories.
