Cocaine Blues - verse

«Cocaine Blues» is a typical Rev. Gary Davis arrangement in C-major. It has an 8-bar structure, but does not follow any standard form. I have written both the verse and a break. Notice bar 3 and 4 in the break. We go fron C to E to F. It is not easy, but it sounds good. You should also notice the 5/4 in bar 4.
