Jackson Browne - Cocaine Lyrics

written: G Davis; additional lyrics by G. Frey and J. Browne
lead vocal: J. Browne

You take Sally and I'll take Sue
There ain't no difference between the two
Runnin' all around my brain

Headin' down Scott, turnin' up Main
Looking for that girl who sells cocaine
Runnin' all around my brain

Mmm, Mama, come here quick
That old cocaine 'bout to make sick
Runnin' all around my brain

Late last night, about a quarter past four
Ladanyi come knockin' down my hotel room door
"Where's the cocaine?"
Said, "It's runnin' all around my brain"

I was talking to my doctor down at the hospital
He said, "Son, it says here you're twenty-seven, but that's impossible"
"You look like you could be forty-five"

Now I'm losing touch with reality and I'm almost out of blow
It's such a fine line; I hate to see it go
Runnin' all around my brain


[long sniffing sound]

Danny Kortchmar(?): "Blood on the highway."

Jackson: "Gotta take either more of it or less of it. I can't quite figure out which one."

David Lindley (?): ""Well, I'll tell you what it does take.  It takes a clear mind. That's what it takes."

Jackson:"You mean it takes a clear mind to take it, or a clear mind not to take it?"

David Lindley (?): "It takes a clear mind to make it."
