If you wanna hang out youve got to take her out; cocaine.
If you wanna get down, down on the ground; cocaine.
She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie; cocaine.

If you got bad news, you wanna kick them blues; cocaine.
When your day is done and you wanna run; cocaine.
She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie; cocaine.

If your thing is gone and you wanna ride on; cocaine.
Don't forget this fact, you can't get it back; cocaine.
She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie; cocaine.

She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie; cocaine.

    Having been fishing many a time with Eric, you discover that there is more than just a singer behind this legendary man. All his songs (I've had the privilege of hearing his old stuff at his house on his even more legendary guitar) have a meaning. Cocaine, even though written by J. J. Cale is no exception: Eric made it his own and people know his version more than the writer's. The message is simple: Use it, be a slave to it. There is no escaping from it.
