Intro:
    Am G F E
    Am G F E
    Am G

     Am 
Your breath is sweet, your eyes are like
    G
two jewels in the sky
F                   
Your back is straight your hair is smooth,
       E                E7
on the pillow where you lie.
Am
But I don't sense affection,
   G
no gratitude or love.
F                           E             E7
Your loyalty is not me, but to the stars above


F                            E  E7
One more cup of coffee for I go.
F                            E  E7
One more cup of coffee for I go,
                  Am   G F E E7
down the valley below.


     Am
Your daddy he's an outlaw,
      G
and a wanderer by trade.
F            
He'll teach you how to pick an choose,
    E                E7
and how to throw the blade.
Am
And he oVersees his kingdom,
      G
so no stranger does intrude.
F
His voice it trembles as he calls out,
E                    E7
for another plate of food


F                              E  E7
One more cup of coffee for the road.
F                            E  E7
One more cup of coffee for I go,
                Am   G F E E7
to the valley below.


     Am
Your sister sees the future,
          G
like your momma and yourself.


F
You've never learned to read or write,
        E                  E7
there's no books upon your shelf.
Am
And your pleasure know no limits,
              G
your voice is like a meadow lark.
F
But your heart is like an ocean,
E              E7
mysterious and dark.


F                              E  E7
One more cup of coffee for the road.
F                            E  E7
One more cup of coffee for I go,
                Am   G F E E7
to the valley below.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
