| Em6 Cmaj7 B7 Em | Em6 Cmaj7 B7  

 Em                                         D 
Leadbelly’s in the background being drowned out by the grind 
                  C                            Em 
He’s singing ’bout „Rock Island Line“ nobody seems to pay him any mind  
Em                                    D 
Bestsellers and bookshelves full of self-help printed word 
           C                            Em 
Some faint elegance is heard, now was that Ellington or Bird?  
 
C                        D                 Bm Em 
And has it really come to this? Can ignorance be bliss? 
            D        Bm           Em 
I’m waiting for   -   the other shoe to drop 
Em6         Cmaj7        B7         Em 
Jazz at the bookstore and Blues in the coffee shop

Jazz at the bookstore and Blues in the coffee shop 
 
         Em                                    D 
There’s a man standing at the crossroads with a dark roast in his hand 
              C                         Em 
He’s livin’ in white yuppy land  over by the milk and sugar stand 
C                        D                 Bm Em 
And have I really come for this, cup of caffenated bliss?  
 
              Cmaj7         Am7            Em 
So we browse around all over town sipping coffees that we can’t pronounce 
     Cmaj7                            B7 
And meanwhile in the Blues Cemetery all the coffins commence to bounce 
 
| Em | Em | Em | Em | 
 
Em                                 D 
Leadbelly’s in the cold ground rolling over in his grave 
                    C                         Em 
The hard road where so many slaved is now so smooth and paved 
C                        D                 Bm Em 
And has it really come to this? Can ignorance be bliss? 
            D        Bm           Em 
I’m waiting for   -   the other shoe to drop 
Em6         Cmaj7        B7         Em 
Jazz at the bookstore and Blues in the coffee shop 
Em6         Cmaj7        B7         Em 
Jazz at the bookstore and Blues in the coffee shop 
Em6         Cmaj7   B7                   Em 
Jazz at the bookstore   -    Blues in the coffee shop
