question on "Sunday Mornin' Coming Down" lyrics

I'm working on a translation of the lyrics, and have a question about one sentence, can't really make up my mind on the meaning so I thought I'd ask the experts.
"I'd smoked my mind the night before
With cigarettes and songs I'd been picking."
Problem is "picking", is this a reference to the guitar (picking), ie "playing", or simply "selecting" ( as a juke box or something?).
I'm not sure what this "songs I'd been picking" means.
What do you guys think?
thanks a bunch

I think it means songs he'd been picking on the guitar.

I believe the line is "I smoked my brain the night before on cigarettes and songs that I'd been pickin' " I think he means he smoked a ton of cigarettes while he was playing (pickin') the guitar and singing.
