Cold Cup of Coffee
I'll admit that I wrote three of the four verses last week, as I took the dog for her morning walk. My brain was thinking in 12-bar blues, and I thought about my coffee getting cold back at the house.
And musically I borrowed from a modern blues/soul song - can you guess? Hint: he's only put out one album, maybe two by now. But I did sneak in some new (for me, at least) guitar licks.
So, if/when I get to 50 (usually I do), I'll be sure to do 51 to make up for this not-quite-within-the-rules song.
Part of my July 4 morning outdoor recording session - you can hear a hawk screech as the song begins.
Cold cup of coffee, man I’m so sad and broke
But it’s all I got and all that keeps me woke
Cold cup of coffee, can’t get no heat
Stale biscuit all I got to eat
Cold cup of coffee, no warmth can I find
Colder woman weighs on my mind
Cold cup of coffee, just can’t heat it up
Think I’ll add some whiskey to my cup
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
