Key: A
A              G         A               Bb9 
I'm feelin' mighty lonesome, haven't slept a wink; 
 
  A                    G            A             A9 
I walk the floor from nine to four, in between I drink 
 
      D9     Dm          Dm6          A    Bb9  A  F#7 
Black coffee -- love's a hand-me-down brew. 
 
     Bm7          D9     E7       Bm7/5-     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 and all I do is pour 
 
      D9     Dm            Dm6             A    Bb9  A  F#7 
Black coffee    since the blues caught my eye; 
 
    Bm7             D9    E7          Bm7/5-      A  G#7 G7 F#7 F7 E7 A 
I'm hangin' out on Monday   my Sunday dreams to dry. 
 
 
 
(Bridge:) 
 
 
Bb9 Dm     Dm7             A 
Now man is born to come a-lovin', 
 
      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 down 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    Bm7/5-    E7 
It's drivin' me cra - zy, this waitin' for my baby 
 
Fdim    E7  Bm7/5-   A   F#7 Bm7 E7 Fdim           A     F#7  Bm7 F7 E7 A  
'Til he come  a - round,           'til he come around.
