One More Cup Of Coffee Lyrics

Your breath is sweet, your eyes are like two jewels in the sky
Your back is straight your hair is smooth on the pillow where you lie
But I don’t sense affection, no gratitude or love
Your loyalty is not to me but to the stars above

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go
To the valley below

Your daddy he’s an outlaw and a wanderer by trade
He’ll teach you how to pick and choose and how to throw the blade
He oversees his kingdom so no stranger does intrude
His voice it trembles as he calls out for another plate of food

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go
To the valley below

Your sister sees the future like your mama and yourself
You’ve never learned to read or write, there’s no books upon your shelf
And your pleasure knows no limits, your voice is like a meadowlark
But your heart is like an ocean, mysterious and dark

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go
To the valley below

One More Cup Of Coffee Chords

One of my personal favorites, One More Cup Of Coffee by Bob Dylan. This is a “four-chord song” having only Am, G, F and E.

To make such simple chords sound interesting, Bob turns them around for the chorus and puts the rest down to performance and lyrics.
