[Verse 1]
I'm feeling mighty lonesome
Haven't slept a wink
I walk the floor and watch the door
And in between I drink

[Chorus]
Black coffee
Love's a hand me down brew
I'll never know a Sunday
In this weekday room

[Verse 2]
I'm talking to the shadows
1 o'clock to 4
And Lord, how slow the moments go
When all I do is pour

[Chorus]
Black coffee
Since the blues caught my eye
I'm hanging out on Monday
My Sunday dream's too dry

[Verse 3[
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

[Bridge]
I'm moody all the morning
Mourning all the night
And in between it's nicotine
And not much hard to fight

[Chorus]
Black coffee
Feelin' low as the ground
It's driving me crazy just waiting for my baby
To maybe come around

[Outro]
My nerves have gone to pieces
My hair is turning gray
All I do is drink black coffee
Since my man's gone away
