The Drinking Song

Joni Mitchell

And the band played on   as the helicopter whirred
Drunk on the lawn in a nuclear dawn
My senses finally blurred.

He was a rock    to the end a solid reminder
Couldn't deny a friend
We lived in the noise and the sweet amber poison
Peekin' up the skirt of the end
And we'd drink   two gnarly dudes and some records |
C D7 |(the chords for
Much like plates of black food |this half just
G C G |repeat those
We filled up our faces, saw some far places |of the first
D C D7 |half)
Stood on the roof in the nude. |

the rest of the verses just repeat that pattern:

Irene good night...
