Oxys, roxys, percocets
I wonder why my life's a mess
Percodan's, morphine, hydros
On top of the world when something's in my nose
Used to be the booze, drinking everyday
Then I started to use, whatever came my way

Melt it down
Suck it up
Shoot it in
Hillbilly heaven
Crush it up
Line it out
The magic dust

Who can you trust?
With hillbilly heroin

yea

hillbilly heroin
I got the hillbilly heroin blues

Started out, just as fun
One or two, then I was done
Chewing them up, to no effect
Soon I was blowing them, more direct
But then...
Then I started to...

Melt it down
Suck it up
Shoot it in
Hillbilly heaven
Crush it up
Line it out
The magic dust

I can't be trusted
on hillbilly heroin

yea

hillbilly heroin
I got the hillbilly heroin blues

Lying, stealing, prescription fraud
Bowing down to the powder god
Offer up sacrifices of dignity and respect
Owe more money than I can collect
Empty college funds, take from family
Sinking lower than I ever imagined I'd be
I look in the mirror, staring at me
Almost sad, but I got enough...
Enough money to...

Melt it down
Suck it up
Shoot it in
Hillbilly heaven
Crush it up
Line it out
The magic dust

Who can you trust?
With hillbilly heroin

yea

(when it’s in my nose would work better, I think.)

(Maybe it’s the way it is sounding in my head, but I would lose the two lines completely)

(Get rid of the “then” in the last line)

If you made those changes then it would look like this,

Thanks Omega, I planned on revising it a little bit more before I posted it up, but I called in to work early. And in case you were wondering, it's not about me, I just live in an area that's pretty much overrun by pill heads.

I think I might change the nose line to "On top of the world with something in my nose"

And I guess I didn't notice I repeated "then."

But yea, thanks, I'll take a look at yours in a bit.

I think that is why I liked the song, also. I grew up in Wise Co, VA. I left in 1988 for the military and I first became aware of the "hillbilly heroin" problem around 2005. Most of my family still lives there and they were giving me the updates on how many people we knew were arrested or killed by this crap.

I believe this will find equilibrium like every thing else. You cannot legislate morals. That is for each of us to decide and will become each our fate, good or bad.
