A song from the 70's based on an older folk song about opium. It was said that when you smoked opium, you'd enter a world of dragons and demons. Conversely when you drunk absinthe you would travel to a land of happiness and green fairies.

Also the origin of chasing the dragon, a modern phrase one uses while smoking a line of heroin on a tin foil fold, as they burn the length, one would enhale through a straw, along the line, thereby chasing the smoke.
