The lyrics can be found here http://decoda.com/chris-jones-thank-you-rj-reynolds-lyrics    - no idea whether they are accurate.

Thank You (R.J. Reynolds) by Chris Jones

Look at that junkie, strung-out, on what God only knows
He ain't washed or shaved in a couple of days and there are stains upon his clothes
Now it ain't smack or that cocaine-crack that's brought him to his knees
But the fully legal product of the tobacco companies
The tobacco companies

So thank you R.J. Reynolds for helpin' me look so cool
And thank you Phillip Morris for keepin' me company after school
And thank you Brown & Williamson, l hope you spent my money well
When this is past and I've smoked my last I will see you all in hell
l will see you all in hell

Now this junkie's not on a street corner, or sleepin' in an alleyway
ln fact, l saw him in my own living room about 3 A.M. today
His hands were shakin', his will was breakin' and his body bathed in sweat
Take a good look, people, this is as low as a man can get
As low as a man can get

So thank you R.J. Reynolds for helpin' me look so cool
And thank you Phillip Morris for keepin' me company after school
And thank you Brown & Williamson, l hope you spent my money well
When this is past and I've smoked my last I will see you all in hell
l will see you all in hell

Now, l've got my own two shoulders upon which to place the blame
But the companies' false piety, well it bugs me just the same
And let us not forget our state and federal government
Before I go I'd like to know where all those taxes went, where all those taxes went

So thank you R.J. Reynolds for helpin' me look so cool
And thank you Phillip Morris for keepin' me company after school
And thank you Brown & Williamson, l hope you spent my money well
When this is past and I've smoked my last I will see you all in hell

noted that:
"Chris Jones born [in] Reno Nevada in 1958 started playing guitar aged 5 , turning professional at 11. He joined the US Army and died aged 46 with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Chris, a reluctant 30 a day nicotine addict wrote a song "Thank you (R.J.Reynolds)" about his favourite tobacco company.
Chris played Blue Grass music with Steve Baker an exquisite blues harmonica player and made two notable albums "Roadhouses & Automobiles" in 2003 and "Smoke and Noise" in the same year. The recording on the first album is fantastic," No Sanctuary Here" is a classic hifi track for deep bass and the liquid harmonica playing by Steve worth a listen."
