[Verse 1]
F                                 
He was a short order cook, and not too much to look at
F                                             C
And he traded in his foot for a medal in the war
C
He loved a girl named Lila in the bar across the highway
C                                                           F
And you ought to see him smilin' at her comin' through the door

[Verse 2]
F
Lila always knew she wasn't no ravin' beauty
F                                           C
She traded in her virtue to a trucker at sixteen
C
But she forgets to remember how he left her off in Denver
                                                     F
When she sees her Cooky smilin' as she opens up the screen

[Chorus]
F            Bb              F
When he says hi Lila, how 'bout a cup of coffee?
F
Take a load off, take your shoes off
 F                          C
Here's the sugar and the cream
        Bb                      F
'Cause Cooky's been to war and Lila's been to Denver
F                                    C              F
And both of them are casualties of someone else's dream.

[Verse 3]
F
Cooky pours the truckers' coffee, Lila serves the riggers' whiskey
F                                                  C
And resists their invitations to go riding for a while.
 C
'Cause in a diner 'cross the highway on a shelf above the pastry
C                                                           F
There's a cup reserved for Lila and the man who makes her smile

[Chorus]
F            Bb              F
When he says hi Lila, how 'bout a cup of coffee?
F
Take a load off, take your shoes off
 F                          C
Here's the sugar and the cream
        Bb                      F
'Cause Cooky's been to war and Lila's been to Denver
F                                    C              F
And both of them are casualties of someone else's dream.

[Verse 4]
F
Now as the nation rolls along like a semi down the highway
F                                                    C
Casting lonely broken bodies in the grass along the road
C
I've finally found a reason for believing in the future
C                                              F
SeEing Cooky and his Lila drinkin' coffee all alone

[Chorus]
F            Bb              F
When he says hi Lila, how 'bout a cup of coffee?
F
Take a load off, take your shoes off
 F                          C
Here's the sugar and the cream

[Chorus]
F            Bb              F
When he says hi Lila, how 'bout a cup of coffee?
F
Take a load off, take your shoes off
 F                          C
Here's the sugar and the cream
        Bb                      F
'Cause Cooky's been to war and Lila's been to Denver
F                                    C              F
And both of them are casualties of someone else's dream.
        Bb                      F
'Cause Cooky's been to war and Lila's been to Denver
F                                    C              F
And both of them are casualties of someone else's dream.
