about

Sparse instrumentation and aching vocals on a classic ballad

lyrics

Music by Sonny Burke
Lyrics by Paul Francis Webster

I’m feeling mighty lonesome
Haven’t slept a wink
I walk the floor and watch the door
And in between I drink

Black coffee
Love’s a hand me down brew
I’ll never know a Sunday
In this weekday room

I’m talking to the shadows
One o’clock to four
And, Lord, how slow the moments go
When all I do is pour

Black coffee
Since the blues caught my eye
I’m hanging out on Monday
My Sunday dreams to dry

Now a man is born to go a-lovin’
A woman’s born to weep and fret
To stay at home and tend her oven
And drown her past regrets
In coffee and cigarettes

I’m moanin’ all the morning
An mourning all the night
And in between it’s nicotine
And not much hard to fight

Black coffee
Feelin’ low as the ground
It’s driving me crazy, this waitin’ for my baby
To maybe come around
