New Track – Cigarettes
I’m psyched the band has added “Cigarettes” to the set. Here’s what I know about it, or at least what I’ve put together.
“Cigarettes” was originally recorded for Amber Headlights, the shelved precursor to Blackberry Belle. It has a dance beat and is a definite rocker. The chorus was later adapted and used for “Follow You Down” on BB. In contrast to how some of the submitted setlists are written, in this case, “Cigarettes” and “Follow You Down” are not separate songs.
Lyrics – (my best transcription based on the studio recording)
the cigarettes are gonna kill me
– I know
I gotta get a light before I hit the door
does anybody have a light
I didn’t want cause I need to get right
so come on and dial the phone
cause i need to get some more
a little something from behind the door
cause I get lonely babe. Lonely.
get the wheel let’s go for a ride
if you’re trouble then I follow you down
now you say you miss me
say i want you back
ain’t that a little symphony
nobody ever tastes so sweet
some day they’re gonna ask whatever happened to me.
last night was alright
I wanna see you again
Any more info? Let me know.
