Don't Forget The Coffee Billy Joe
Written & Recorded by Tom T. Hall

Intro.:  (C) x 6 bars

It (C)snowed the night be-(F)fore and it had (C)frozen on the ground
We didn't have a (F)car and we lived (C) seven miles from (G)town
(F) And I can hear my daddy's voice so (C) many years a-(F)go
Sayin', (C) "Don't forget the (F)coffee Billy (C)Joe"

(Chorus)
(G) "Mama needs her medicine, she's (F)got that real bad (C)cough
We'll (G)get our check on Monday, tell ol' (F)Sam we'll pay him (C)off
You can catch a (F)ride when you get (C) to the black-top (F)road
(C) Don't forget the (F)coffee Billy (C)Joe"

(C) Me and Quentin (F)went back on the (C)hill and we cut some wood
Burnin' in that (F)ol' warm mornin' (C)stove, it sure smelled (G)good
(F) Daddy couldn't get work then and (C)I was just a (F)child
And (C)God was on (F)vacation for awhile (C)

(Chorus)
"Well, if (G)you see Fred you tell him I'll come (F)help him kill them (C)hogs
(G) And ask him if he'd still be inter-(F)ested in my (C)dogs
Don't hang around that (F)pool room all day, (C) we might get more (F)snow
(C) And don't forget the (F)coffee Billy (C)Joe"

Well, they (C)wonder why there (F)ain't no rabbits (C)left this day and time
To tell the truth, I (F)guess we ate 'em (C)all in forty-(G)nine
Was that (F)yesterday or was it over (C) twenty years a-(F)go
(C) "Don't forget the (F)coffee Billy (C)Joe"

(Chorus)
(G) "Mama needs her medicine, she's (F)got that real bad (C)cough
We'll (G)get our check on Monday, tell ol' (F)Sam we'll pay him (C)off
You can catch a (F)ride when you get (C) to the black-top (F)road
(C) Don't forget the (F)coffee Billy (C)Joe (Now pay attention, son)

(Tag)
(C) Don't forget the (F)coffee Billy (C)Joe"
