Morphine

This old time song has really gotten stuck in my head lately.

I took morphine last Saturday night,
Lord I took it in that morphine way,
If the Doctor hadn’t come just as he did,
Lord I’d a’been in my grave today.

Well it’s peaches honey, Rye, Rock and Rye,
Oh baby let me tell you my dream,

I dreamed last night had a pocket full of money,
And a quarter in a big dice game.
But when I awoke, it was only a joke,
And I didn’t have one penny to my name.
