Coffee and Wine

Em                       G
Tommy, you know, he had one deaf ear
Am                          Em
Back from his minesweeping days
Em                                  G
You never could tell just what he could and could not hear
Am                              Em
And he intended to keep it that way

      G                  C
He joined the Navy just like his Daddy done
     G                       D
When he was of the rightful age
        Em                    G
He took off right quick like many a kid did
         D                        C
When his parents took hard to the drink

             Em                          G
And now it's coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
D                          C
Any time's a good time, so go unlock your daughters
         Em                          G
With his motorcycle friends, they're going off again
         D                        C
From the Black Sea all the way to Britain,
               Em
All the way to Britain

Em                      G
She was a dame of New Jersey fame
Am                            Em
Lived her life like it was a bourre game
Em                      
And if there were sides being taken
     G                                 Am           Em
You better believe you wanna be on the side she was on

     G                     C
She went to the city for secretary school
       G                  D
Ended up working for the CIA
          Em                      G
She had a short hand that didn't suffer no fools
D                             C
She intended to keep it that way



               Em                          G
And she drank coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
D                           C
Any old time she could have any horse she wanted
    Em                          G
And if you gonna’ ride then you ride it like you stole it
 D              C
From a steeple chase
       
    Em                          G
She drank coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
D                             C
Boys tried to give chase, but no one ever caught her
          Em                   G
'Til she found her love, and Sheila didn't let Tommy
  D       C
Sleep for days

*Interlude*    G D C Em   G D C
               G D C Em   G D Em

      C                          G
Their first meeting was hardly a word
       D                 C
But he built her a harpsichord
       C                           G          Em
And he found her unconscious just inside the door
D
And carried her to help

      C             G
Now every now and again
        D                                  C
She pretends to faint on the harpsichord bench
                                 G    Em
And he picks her up again and carries her
D
Up to their bed

                Em                          G
And they drink coffee like it’s fine wine, wine like it's water
D                        C
Any time's a good time, ‘cause now they have a daughter
          Em                          G
And she rides so fast, they said they gonna name her
D   C
Farley

            Em                          G
They drink coffee like it’s fine wine, wine like it's water
D                          C
Don't ask what kind, it's just the kind our parents brought us
           Em                          G
From the Black Sea shore and the girl next door
 D         C
Who could ride

            Em                          G
They drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
D                             C
Any time's a good time cause now they have a daughter
          Em                 G
And she rides so fast, they said they gonna’ name her
D   C
Farley

                Em                          G
And they drink coffee like it's fine wine, wine like it's water
D                                   C
Don't ask what kind, it's just the kind our parents brought us
          Em                           G
From the Black Sea shore and the girl next door
D         C
Who could ride...

As far as I'm concerned, this is the best tab on this site. Easy to follow, and just an awesome song. Much Appreciated!

I play the em 022000 and then one strum of 202000 before transitioning to the g chord. i also play a dsus (two dsus strums then back to d chord) before switching to the c. I think it adds more color.
