Biisin tiedot

70-luvun puolivälissä Lynyrd Skynyrdin useat muusikot olivat sotkeutuneet heroiinin käyttöön. Heroiinin polttamisesta lähtevään hajuun viittaa biisin nimikin. Biisin kirjoittaja Van Zandt purkaa ensimmäisessä säkeistössä pelkojaan. Yhtyeen toinen kitaristi Gary Rossingtonin oli nimittäin juuri aineissa ajanut auton päin tammea.

”Whiskey bottles, and brand new cars
Oak tree you’re in my way
There’s too much coke and too much smoke
Look what’s going on inside you
Ooooh that smell
Can’t you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you”

    ”Whiskey bottles and brand new cars;
    oak tree you’re in my way.
    There’s too much coke and too much smoke
    Look what’s going on inside you.

    Ooh, ooh that smell
    Can’t you smell that smell?
    Ooh, ooh that smell
    The smell of death surrounds you.

    Yeah.
    Angel of darkness is upon you.
    Stuck a needle in your arm (you, fool, you)
    So take another toke, have a blow for your nose,
    one more drink, fool, would drown you. (hell, yeah)

    CHORUS

    Now they call you prince charming.
    Can’t speak a word when you’re full of ’ludes.
    Say you’ll be alright come tomorrow, but
    tomorrow might not be here for you. (yeah, you)

    Aw, you, fool, you.
    You stick them needles in your arm
    I know I been there before.

    One little problem that confronts you,
    got a monkey on your back.
    Just one more fix, Lord, might do the trick.
    One hell of a price for you to get your kicks. (hell, yeah)

    Oh, you, fool, you
    Don’t stick those needles in your arm.
    You’re just a fool, just a fool, just a fool.”
