The Maple Leaf Champions Jug Band sings:

Take A Whiff On Me

Cocaine Bill and Morphine Sue
Strollin' down the Avenue two by two
Oh Lord, Honey take a whiff on me
Well, I love my whiskey and I love my gin
The way I love my coke, it's a doggone sin.
Oh Lord, Honey take a whiff on me.

Take a whiff on me, take a whiff on me,
All you rounders take a whiff on me
Oh Lord, Honey take a whiff on me.

Tell it to me boys, tell it to me,
Drink corn liquor, let the cocaine be,
Oh Lord, Honey take a whiff on me.
Cocaine's for horses, not for men,
Doctor says 'll kill me, but he don't say when,
Oh Lord, Honey take a whiff on me.

Take a whiff...

In the graveyard on the hill
Lies the body of Cocaine Bill,
Oh Lord, Honey take a whiff on me.
And in the graveyard by his side
Lies the body of his cocaine bride,
Oh Lord Honey take a whiff on me.

Take a whiff...

Take a whiff o' ree take a whiff o' rye,
Gonna keep sniffin' till the day I die
Oh Lord, Honey take a whiff on me.
Now all these Okies are gonna be dead
If they don't stop sniffin' that stuff in their head.
Oh Lord, Honey take a whiff on me.

Take a,take a, take a, take a whiff on me,
Everybody take a whiff on me,
Oh Lord, Honey take a whiff on me.

Take a (sniff), take a (sniff), take a (sniff) on me,
Everybody take a whiff on me,
Oh Lord, Honey take a whiff on me.
