Black Coffee chords – Ella Fitzgerald V2

 Intro
 C Gm C Gm  ...


Verse 1
     C Gm 
I'm feeling mighty lonesome
 C Gm 
Haven't slept a wink
   C Gm 
I walk the floor & watch the door
     C Gm 
And in between I drink
 F7 
Black coffee
 F7 C Dm Em Bb F 
Love's a hand-me-down brew
             Gm Dm9 
Well, I'll never know a Sunday
 F7 G C Gm C Gm 
In this weekday rule


Verse 2
    C Gm 
I'm talking to the shadows
    C Gm 
One o'clock to four
    C Gm 
And oh how slow the moments go
    C Gm 
When all I do is pour 
 F7 
Black coffee
 F7 C Dm Em Bb F 
Since the blues caught my eye
             Gm Dm9 
Well I'm hanging out on Monday
 F7 G C Gm C Gm 
My Sunday dreams to dry


Bridge
         F Cm 
Well, a man is born to go on lovin'
     Fm Ab C 
A woman's born to weep & fret
         Ab Fm 
To stay home & tend her lovin'
            Ab 
And drown her past regrets
         G 
In coffee & cigarettes


Verse 3: 
    C Gm 
Alone all the morning
    C Gm 
Mourning all the night
    C Gm 
And, in between, it's nicotine
    C Gm 
And not much heart to fight
 F7 
Black coffee
 F7 C Dm Em Bb F 
Feeling low as the ground
             Gm Dm9 
It's drivin' me crazy, this waiting for my baby
 F7 G C Gm C Gm 
To maybe come around


Bridge (Repeat):
         F Cm 
Well, a man is born to go on lovin'
     Fm Ab C 
A woman's born to weep & fret
         Ab Fm 
To stay home & tend her lovin'
            Ab 
And drown her past regrets
         G 
In coffee & cigarettes


Verse 3 (Repeat):
    C Gm 
Alone all the morning
    C Gm 
Mourning all the night
    C Gm 
And, in between, it's nicotine
    C Gm 
And not much heart to fight
 F7 
Black coffee
 F7 C Dm Em Bb F 
Feeling low as the ground
             Gm Dm9 
It's drivin' me crazy, this waiting for my baby
 F7 G C Gm C Gm 
To maybe come around


Outro:
 Am 
My nerves have gone to pieces
 Cdim7 
My hair is turning grey
 F7 
All I do is drink black coffee
 G7 Cm      
Since my man's gone away...
