Black Coffee

(Sonny Burke and Paul Francis Webster)

Introduo: Bm7 D9 E7 Bm5-/7 A F#7 Bm7 F7 E7 

     A         G       A         Bb9 
I'm feelin' mighty lonesome, haven't slept a wink 
  A              G         A         A9 
I walk the floor and watch the door, in between I drink 
   D9     Dm       Dm6        A  Bb9  A  F#7 
Black coffee love's a hand-me-down broom 
     Bm7       D9     E7   Bm5-/7   A  F#7  Bm7 F7 E7 
I'll never know a Sunday in this weekday room 
  A            G      A        Bb9 
I'm talkin to the shadow one o'clock till four 
 A             G        A       A9 
And Lord, how slow the moments go when all I do is pour 
 D9        Dm        Dm6         A    Bb9  A  F#7 
Black coffee  since the blues caught my eye 
 Bm7            D9    E7   Bm5-/7   A  G#7  G7 F#7 F7 E7 A 
I'm hangin' out on Monday my Sunday dreams to dry 
Bb9 Dm     Dm7         A 
Now man is born to come alovin' 
  Dm          Dm7 Gdim  A 
And a woman's born to weep and fret 
      F7          Bb 
To stay at home and tend her oven 
  F7    Gdim     F7     E7      Fdim   E7 
And drown her past regrets in coffee and cigarettes 
   A          G      A          Bb9 
I'm moonin' all the mornin', moanin' all the night 
 A          G          A           A9 
And in between it's nicotine and not much heart to fight 
   D9     Dm         Dm6           A    Bb9  A   
Black coffee  feelin' low as the ground 
     C#7      G7   F#7        D9    Bm5-/7   E7 
It's drivin' me crazy, this waitin' for my baby 
Fdim    E7  Bm5-/7  A  F#7 Bm7  E7  Fdim    A F#7  Bm7 F7 E7 A  
'Til he come   around,     til he come around
