Joe Cocker – Long Drag Off A Cigarette lyrics

She was sittin' there kinda distant
With her eyes half closed
She took a long drag off a cigarette
And let it out real slow

And I felt something clicking
Between her and me
That's when she turned around and said
"Long time no see"

Looks like luck's been on your side
Knock on wood
I don't know what or who finally got through to you
But me, I never could

I'm just walking back to the fire
Hey, is being confused some kind of sin?
But tonight I'm gonna turn around and walk right outa' here
Before I get back into trouble again

I'm sittin' here kinda distant
With my eyes half closed
I'm gonna take a long drag off a cigarette
And let it out real slow
