I Couldn't Get High

	  		

This is exactly the chords The Fugs use on the studio version, but not exactly the best  
progression.  If you are annoyed with what they're playing then add an E chord in the  
Chorus during the "Whoa oh/Oh no!" part. 

Intro: 
Am   D 

Am   D 

Am          D 
I went to a party 

         Am    D 
just the other night 

Am          D       Am        D 
I wanted to feel my brain was light 

D 
I grabbed myself a bottle 

D 
and I started drinking wine 

E 
I thought pretty soon, I'd be feeling fine.... 

      Am           D     Am  D 
But I couldn't get high! Oh, No! 

  Am         D    Am  D 
Don't know why, Oh, No! 

     Am             D 
So I threw down the bottle 

    Am             D 
and whipped out my pipe 

      Am                 D 
and I stuffed it full of grass 

      Am            D 
and I gave myself a light 

D 
I huffed, I puffed 

D 
I smoked and I toked 

    E 
but after awhile, my heart was nearly broke..... 

        Am           D     Am  D 
cause I couldn't get high, Oh, No! 

Am         D    Am  D 
Don't know why, Oh, No! 

Am  D  Am  D 
(Guitar solo) 

     Am             D 
So I threw down the pipe 

   Am             D 
as mad as I could be 

    Am           D       Am  D 
and gobbled up a tube of LSD 

  D 
I waited thirty minuets 

 D 
for my body to sing 

E 
I waited and I waited 

E 
but couldn't get a thing 

Am                   D     Am  D 
cause I couldn't get high, Oh, no! 

Am           D    Am  D 
Couldn't get high whoa oh! 

Am             D     Am  D 
I couldn't get high, whoa oh! 

Am         D    Am D 
Don't know why, oh no! 

Am  D  Am  D
