One Toke Over the Line  Brewer & Shipley

Subject: Re: REQ: One Toke Over the Line by Brewer and Shipley
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 -- Brewer and Shipley
| C | C | F | C | C C/B | Am D9 | F G | C |
[C]One toke over the line, sweet Jesus, [F]one toke over the [C]line
Sittin' down[C/B]town in a [Am]railway [D9]station, [F]one toke [G]over the [C]line
[C]Waitin' for the train that goes home, sweet Mary
[F]Hoping that the train is on [C]time
Sittin' down[C/B]town in a [Am]railway [D9]station, [F]one toke [G]over the [C]line
[C]Who do you lov[F]e, I hope it's m[C]e
I've been [D9]changing, [F] as you can plainly [G(7)]see
[C] I felt the joy and I learned about the pai[F]n, and my mama sai[C]d
If I should [Am]choose to make it [D9]part of m[F]e
[G(7)] Would surely strike me dead, and now I'm ... (chorus)
[C]I sail awa[F]y, a country mil[C]e
And now I'm re[D9]turning, [F] and showing off my [G(7)]smile
I [C]met all the girls and I loved myself a fe[F]w, and to my surpri[C]se
Like every[Am]thing else that [D9]I've been th[F]rough
[G(7)] They opened up my eyes, and now I'm ... (chorus)
