Mr Coffee (A lonely Soul)

from by Genuine Crude



Born in 1951
Mom and Dad French Canadian
Dad played the fiddle
Big fan of the Beetles
I locked myself away
Until everyone was gone

Barry said let me introduce you to Tom
And then everybody knew
Goodbye Mothers Milk
We put it back on the shelf
And then born again
As somebody else

I am everything
That I was supposed to be
Fortune and fame carried my name
To the heavens alone
Cause I am a lonely soul

The ultimate host
Mr Coffees at home
He left you a note
2 3 4 at the most
An anonymous couple
Had a private conversation

(Repeat Chorus)

Two were done
Then we said our goodbyes
Amid corporate lies
Three would take years to complete
Battling the demons and the record companies

A reluctant friend
Together once again here in Boston
The winters are cold
Melodies never grow old
It's more than a feeling
For a sensitive soul

Honey be good to yourself
Cause I miss you to
Don't blame Tom
Cause we all carry on
The Hammond doesn't lie
It's committed to the truth

(Repeat Chorus)

Hey every one
Tune in to the radio
If you didn't know
Our records still selling
The stories compelling
Check out the hooks
The records in the books

The Guitar is a ship
Isn't that ridiculous
Held together by strings
And the insecure sings
About looking back
This story never grows old
For I am a lonely soul
