– Black Coffee –
by Reginald "Sonny" Burke & Paul Francis Webster, 1948

    A              G         A               Bb9
I'm feelin' mighty lonesome, haven't slept a wink;
  A                    G            A             A9
I walk the floor from nine to four, in between I drink
      D9     Dm          Dm6          A    Bb9  A  F#7
Black coffee -- love's a hand-me-down brew.
     Bm7          D9     E7       Bm7-5     A  F#7  Bm7 F7 E7
I'll never know a Sunday   in this weekday room.

    A              G      A               Bb9
I'm talkin to the shadow one o'clock till four,
     A                  G              A           A9
And Lord, how slow the moments go and all I do is pour
      D9     Dm            Dm6             A    Bb9  A  F#7
Black coffee    since the blues caught my eye;
    Bm7             D9    E7          Bm7-5      A  G#7 G7 F#7 F7 E7 A
I'm hangin' out on Monday   my Sunday dreams to dry.
    (Bridge:)
Bb9 Dm     Dm7             A
Now man is born to come a-lovin',
      Dm              Dm7 Gdim  A
And a woman's born to weep and fret
    F7                       Bb
To stay at home and tend her oven
     F7      Gdim     F7     E7        Fdim   E7
And down her past regrets in coffee and cigarettes.

     A               G        A               Bb9
I'm moonin' all the mornin', moanin' all the night
    A                G            A                A9
And in between it's nicotine and not much heart to fight.
      D9     Dm         Dm6           A    Bb9  A 
Black coffee -- feelin' low as the ground.
     C#7        G7   F#7        D9    Bm7-5    E7
It's drivin' me cra - zy, this waitin' for my baby
Fdim    E7  Bm7-5   A   F#7 Bm7 E7 Fdim       A   F#7  Bm7 F7 E7 A
'Til he come  a - round,           'til he come around.

In old Savannah, I said Savannah,
Aj7 . . . . . . Am67 . Aj7 . . . Am67
The weather there is nice and warm!
. . . . D6 . . . . . . . Aj7
The climate's of a Southern brand,
. . . . D6 . . . . . . . . . . .E7
But here's what I don't understand:
Aj7 . . . . Am67 . . .Aj7 . . .Am67
They got a gal there, a pretty gal there,
Aj7 . . . . . . Am67 . Aj7 . . .Am67
Who's colder than an Arctic storm,
. . . . . . . . C#m7 . . . . . . . E6b5
She's got a heart just like a stone,
. . . .F#m.7 . . . . . . . . . . E7
Even ice men leave her alone!

. . . . . . . . . . . A6 . . . . . . . ./G# . . . . . . /G . . . . . . F#
They call her Hard Hearted Hannah, the vamp of Savannah,
. . . .Bm7 . . F#7 . Bm7
The meanest gal in town;
E6 . . . . . . E . . . . . . E6 . . . . . . . . . . . E
Leather is tough, but Hannah's heart is tougher,
A6 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .F . . . . .E7
She's a gal who loves to see men suffer!
. . .A6 . . . . . . . .. /G# . . . . . . /G . . . . . . . . . .F#
To tease 'em, and thrill 'em, to freeze 'em and chill 'em,
Bm7 . . F#7 . . . . Bm7
Is her delight, they say,
. Bm7 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .C-
I saw her at the seashore with a great big can,
. . . . . . . . . A6 . . . . . . . . . /G# . . . . . . F#7
There was Hannah pouring water on a drowning man!
. . . . . B9 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . E6 . . . . . . E7
She's Hard Hearted Hannah, the vamp of Savannah, G - A!

. . . . . . . . . . . A6 . . . . . . . ./G# . . . . . . /G . . . . . . F#
They call her Hard Hearted Hannah, the vamp of Savannah,
. . . .Bm7 . . F#7 . Bm7
The meanest gal in town;
E6 . . . . . . . . . . . E . . . E6 . . . . . E
Talk about your cold, refrigeratin' mama,
A6 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .F . . . . .E7
Brother, she's a polar bear's pajama!
. . .A6 . . . . . . . .. /G# . . . . . . /G . . . . . . . . . .F#
To tease 'em, and thrill 'em, to freeze 'em and chill 'em,
Bm7 . . F#7 . . . . Bm7
Is her delight, they say,
. . .Bm7 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .C-
An evening spent with Hannah sittin' on your knees,
. . . . . .A6 . . . . . . . . . /G# . . . . . . F#7
Is like drivin' through Alaska in your B - V - Ds.
. . . . . . . . B9 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . E6 . . . . . .E7
She's just Hard Hearted Hannah, the vamp of Savannah, G - A!
