Lyrics

[Verse 1]

When I finally finished school

It was the first thing that I did

What every townie kid dreams of

I packed and started west

A thousand dollars I had saved

And my sister's two cassettes

The Dead from Fillmore East

And Otis Redding's Greatest Hits

[Chorus]

Coffee and cigarettes

As simple as it gets

Of all the things I think I'll miss

There's staying up with you

Coffee and cigarettes

Coffee and cigarettes

[Verse 2]

Then, I commit with some restraint

To a boy I thought might care

It didn't work but I found out soon

And never dug roots there

I've been a lot of places since

And nothing else compares

To easy times and easy eyes

To meet you in a stare

[Chorus]

Coffee and cigarettes

As simple as it gets

Of all the things I think I'll miss

There's staying up with you

Coffee and cigarettes

Coffee and cigarettes

[Guitar Solo]

[Verse 3]

When I finally finished school

It was the first thing that I did

What every townie kid dreams of

I packed and started west

[Chorus]

Coffee and cigarettes

As simple as it gets

Of all the things I think I'll miss

There's staying up with you

Coffee and cigarettes

[Outro]

There's staying up with you

Coffee and cigarettes

Coffee and cigarettes

There's staying up with you

Coffee and cigarettes
