I think I may have asked this before, and even been answered, but I'm still looking for the song.

There's a song called Cocaine Blues, that starts something like:

Early one morning I was doing my rounds

I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down

There's a version by Johnny Cash, but it's an older version - from the 1940s, I think - that I'm after, a cheery little thing with German-style accordion breaks.

I had it on one of those compilations of Americana, but can't find it any more.
