Verse:
C
a lady that I know just came from Columbia,
    F                             C
she smiled because I did not understand.
                           F
Then she held out some marijuana, ha ha!
    G7                              C
She said it was the best in all the land.

And I said,

Chorus:
C
No, no, no, no, I don't smoke it no more.
                              G7
I'm tired of waking up on the floor.

No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze,
                                      C
and then it makes it hard to find the door.

Verse:
C
a woman that I know just came from Majorca, in Spain.
    F                             C
She smiled because I did not understand.
                              F
Then she held out a ten pound bag of cocaine,
    G7                            C
she said it was the finest in the land.

And I said...

Chorus:
C
No, no, no, no, I don't sniff it no more.
                              G7
I'm tired of waking up on the floor.

No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze,
                                      C
and then it makes it hard to find the door.

Verse:
C
a man I know just came from Nashville, Tennessee, oh.
   F                             C
He smiled because I did not understand.
                                F
Then he held out some moonshine whiskey, oh ho,
   G7                              C
he said it was the best in all the land. 

And I said..

Chorus:
C
No, no, no, no, I don't drink it no more.
                              G7
I'm tired of waking up on the floor.

No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze,
                                      C
and then it makes it hard to find the door.

Well, I said...

Outro:
C
No, no, no, no, I can't take it no more.
                              G7
I'm tired of waking up on the floor.

No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze,
                                      C
and then it makes it hard to find the door.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
