Thread Name: Chords Req: Cocaine Blues (from Dave Van Ronk)
Subject: RE: Chords Req: cocain blues
As I recall, Van Ronk's version was much simpler than what Van Zandts appears to be - more along the lines of:

Every time I meet my baby, go up town
Police come and knock me down
C             F       G       C    G C
Cocaine, -- run all round my brain.

Yeah Baby come here quick
This ol' cocaine's 'bout to make me sick
C            F       G       C
Cocaine,-- run all round my brain
