Black Coffee in Bed

Std Tuning

Not sure why there are so few Squeeze tabs. Not like these are awesome guitar songs, but
I know someone out there has heard one on the radio and come in here looking for the chords.
Nice little party/campfire song here. I found most of this on the web and worked parts of
it into a single tab for ultimate-guitar's archives.

Main riff notes:


[Verse 1]

There's a
D           Bm                  G          D
stain on my notebook where your coffee cup was. And there's
D          Bm              G          D
ash in the pages, now I've got myself lost.    I was
D          Bm               G         D
writing to tell you that my feelings tonight,  are a
D           Bm            G          D
stain on my notebook that rings your goodbye. Oh but...

[Chorus 1]

Bm               Bm          F#               F#
Now she's gone, (*)  and I'm back on the beat.           A
C#m              C#m         A                A
stain on my note-book   says nothing to me.      Oh-ho, but..
D                D           G                G
Now she's gone, (*)  and I'm out with a friend (out with a...
A                A
friend).    With lips full of passion
G                G                D**
....(oooh).. and coffee ... in .. bed.

(* = background echo "Now she's gone")
(** start main riff, play x 4)

[Verse 2]

         D            Bm              G         D
With the way that you left me I could hardly contain
    D            Bm            G          D
The hurt and the anger and the joy of the pain
    D            Bm                 G           D
Now knowing I am single there'll be fire in my eyes
      D           Bm             G           D
And a stain on my notebook for a new love tonight

[Chorus 2]
(same as 1) (x1)

(sorry maybe later)

[Chorus 3]
(comes out of solo half way through)

Now she's gone (now she's gone)
        G                             A
and I'm out with a friend (out with a friend)
A                        G              D
With lips full of passion and coffee in bed

[Verse 3]

      D           Bm             G           D
From lips without passion to the lips with a kiss
        D               Bm             G    D
There's nothing of your love that I'll ever miss
    D           Bm               G          D
The stain on my notebook remains all that's left
       D         Bm              G         D
Of the memory of late nights and coffee in bed
       D          Bm             G         D
Of the memory of late nights and coffee in bed


(Repeat Chorus 1) (and add lib parts from Verse 3) to fade.

The "Out with a friend" G should be a G7.
Good chords - thanks!
