MY LAST CIGARETTE
(Sydney Carter)

A D
Tobacco, tobacco, I hate you, I do.
E A
Like Tarzan I'd look if it wasn't for you.
D
But I'll give up the habit, I will even yet,
E A E7
When I've had just one more cigarette.
A E
It wasn't the whisky, it wasn't the wine,
D A
That made such a wreck of this body of mine,
E
But I'll give up the habit, I will even yet,
A
When I've had just one more cigarette.


Under my eyes are a couple of bags.
I blame it all on to a packet of fags.
But I'll give up the habit, I will even yet,
When I've had just one more cigarette.
My teeth are all yellow and so is my tongue.
I breathe through a kipper. I call it a lung.
But I'll give up the habit, I will even yet,
When I've had just one more cigarette.

Nail in my coffin, so pale and so thin,
I am a fool to keep driving you in.
You say that you'll kill me; how much do you bet?
When I've had just one more cigarette,
I'll fling the packet away, away.
Fifty times in a week I say:
Fling the packet away, away,
When I've had just one more cigarette.
