Cooky And Lila Chords

- + x0
[Verse 1]~
F
He was a short order cook,, and not too much to look at

F                                             C
And he traded in his foot for a medal in the war

C
He loved a girl named Lila in the bar across the highway

C                                                          F
And you ought to see him smilin' at her comin' through the door


[Verse 2]~
F
Lila always knew she wasn't no ravin' beauty

F                                           C
She traded in her virtue to a trucker at sixteen

C
But she forgets to remember how he left her off in Denver

                                          F
When she sees her Cooky smilin' as she opens up the screen


[Chorus]~
F            Bb             F
When he says hi Lila,, how 'bout a cup of coffee..?

F
Take a load off,, take your shoes off

F                         C
Here's the sugar and the cream

       Bb                      F
'Cause Cooky's been to war and Lila's been to Denver

F                                    C             F
And both of them are casualties of someone else's dream!


[Verse 3]~
F
Cooky pours the truckers' coffee,, Lila serves the riggers' whiskey

F                                                 C
And resists their invitations to go riding for a while!

C
'Cause in a diner 'cross the highway on a shelf above the pastry

C                                                          F
There's a cup reserved for Lila and the man who makes her smile


[Chorus]~
F            Bb             F
When he says hi Lila,, how 'bout a cup of coffee..?

F
Take a load off,, take your shoes off

F                         C
Here's the sugar and the cream

       Bb                      F
'Cause Cooky's been to war and Lila's been to Denver

F                                    C             F
And both of them are casualties of someone else's dream!


[Verse 4]~
F
Now as the nation rolls along like a semi down the highway

F                                                    C
Casting lonely broken bodies in the grass along the road

C
I've finally found a reason for believing in the future

C                                              F
SeEing Cooky and his Lila drinkin' coffee all alone


[Chorus]~
F            Bb             F
When he says hi Lila,, how 'bout a cup of coffee..?

F
Take a load off,, take your shoes off

F                         C
Here's the sugar and the cream


[Chorus]~
F            Bb             F
When he says hi Lila,, how 'bout a cup of coffee..?

F
Take a load off,, take your shoes off

F                         C
Here's the sugar and the cream

       Bb                      F
'Cause Cooky's been to war and Lila's been to Denver

F                                    C             F
And both of them are casualties of someone else's dream!

       Bb                      F
'Cause Cooky's been to war and Lila's been to Denver

F                                    C             F
And both of them are casualties of someone else's dream!
