One Toke Over the Line

Brewer & Shipley

This file is the author's own work and represents their interpretation of the
song. You may only use this file for private study, scholarship, or research.

The story I've heard about this recording (I think in a recorded
interview with Robert Hunter several years ago) is that it was the
Grateful Dead backing up Brewer and Shipley on this recording. It
certainly sounds like them. Anyway ...

 One toke over the line, sweet Jesus, one toke over the line
 CC walk downAmD7FGC
 Sittin' downtown in a railway station, one toke over the line
 C
Awaitin' for the train that goes home, sweet Mary
 FC
 Hoping that the train is on time
 CC walk downAmD7FGC
 Sittin' downtown in a railway station, one toke over the line

Verse 1
 CFC
 Who do you love, I hope it's me 
 CAmD7G7
 I've been changing, as you can plainly see
 CFC
 I felt the joy and I learned about the pain, and my mama said 
 CC walk downAmD7
 If I should choose to make it part of me
 G7C
 Would surely strike me dead, and now I'm ...

chorus

Verse 2
 CFC
 I sail away, a country mile 
 CC walk downAmD7G7
 And now I'm returning, and showing off my smile
 CFC
met all the girls and I loved myself a few, and to my surprise 
 CC walk downAmD7
 Like everything else that I've been through
 G7
 They opened up my eyes, and now I'm ...

chorus
 C
Don't ya know we're just a...
 C
...waitin' for the train that goes home, sweet Mary
 FC
 Hoping that the train is on time
 CC walk downAmD7FGC
 Sittin' downtown in a railway station, one toke over the line, I wanna be...

Repeat chorus
...with this closer
 CC walk downAmD7FGC
 Sittin' downtown in a railway station, one toke over the line
 FFGC
 one toke, one toke over the line
