Smoke Smoke Smoke That Cigarette
Recorded by Hank Thompson
Written by Merle Travis

G
Now I'm a fellar with a heart of gold
C
With the ways of a gentleman I've been told
G D7 G D7
The kind of a fellar that wouldn't even harm a flea
G
But if me and a certain character met
C
That guy that invented the cigarette
G D7 G
I'd murder that son-of-a-gun in the first degree


Now it ain't 'cause I don't smoke myself
C
And I don't reckon that they hinder your health
G D7 G D7
I've smoked 'em all my life and I ain't dead yet
G
But nicotine slaves are all the same
C
At a petting party or a poker game
G D7 G
Every thing's gotta stop while they smoke the cigarette

C G
Smoke smoke smoke that cigarette
C A7 D7
Puff puff puff it if you smoke yourself to death
G
Tell Saint Peter at the Golden Gate
C G
That you hate to make him wait
D7 G
You've just gotta have another cigarette


In a game of chance the other night
C
Old Dame Fortune was a-doing me right
G D7 G D7
Man the kings and queens just kept on coming around
G
Then I got a full and I bet it high
C
But my bluff didn't work on a certain guy
G D7 G
He just keep on raising and laying the money down


Now he'd raise me I'd raise him
C
I sweated blood you gotta sink or swim
G D7 G D7
He finally called didn't raise the bet
G
I said aces full pal how about you
C
He said well I'll tell you in just a minute or two
G D7 G
But right now I just gotta have myself a cigarette

repeat #3


Now the other night I had me a date
C
With the cutest little gal in the fifty states
G D7 G D7
A highbred uptown fancy little dame
G
She said she loved me and it seemed to me
C
That everything was about like it oughta be
G D7 G
So hand in hand we strolled down lover's lane


She was oh so far from a chunk of ice
C
And our smooching party was going real nice
G D7 G D7
So help me Hanna I think I'd-a been there yet
G
Well I give her a kiss a little squeeze
C
She said Hank excuse me please
G D7 G
But I just gotta have myself a filter cigarette

repeat #3
