Bring me champagne when I'm thirsty
Bring me a reefer when I want to get high
Give me champagne when I'm thirsty
Give me a reefer when I want to get high
Give me a woman when I get lonely
And sit her right down here by my side

Well your turn

Lord there should be no law
When a man want to smoke a little dope
Hey Mick, Lord there should be no law
When a man want to smoke a little dope
Yeah you're the same as loving
Cause it's time out, don't you know

Every time I get high
Yeah, I lay my head down on my baby's breast
Every time I get high
I'm going to lay down on my baby's breast
Well you know she hug and kiss me baby
She said Buddy Guy you are the best

I want to get high this morning
People just as sure is my name
I want to get high this morning, Mick
Just as sure is my name
You can bet my bottom dollar
Keith ain't on you no cocaine

Give me champagne when I'm thirsty
Give me reefer when I want to get high - oh yeah
Give me champagne when I'm thirsty
Give me a reefer when I want to get high
Give me a woman when I get lonely
Lay down by my baby's side

Let's play the blues now, two more choruses
Come on

One more time, one more time, one more time

Give me a woman when I get lonely
Lay down by my baby's side
