Cold Tea Blues

Michael Timmins


[C] If I pour your cup
that is [F] friendship.
[C] If I add your milk
that is [G] manners.
[C] If I stop there,
claiming [F] ignorance of taste, [Dm] [G]
that is [C] tea.

[C] If I pour your cup
that is [F] friendship.
[C] If I add your milk
that is [G] manners.
[C] If I stop there,
claiming [F] ignorance of taste, [Dm] [G]
that is [C] tea.

But [F] if I measure the sugar
to satisfy your expectant tongue
Then that is [C] love.

But [F] if I measure the sugar
to satisfy your expectant tongue
Then that is [C] love,
[Dm] Sitting [G] untouched and [C] growing cold.

bbkim's note: Play most of the chords, except the [Dm] and [G] at the end of each verse, like the example of a [C] below, i.e., bass, strum, bass, strum, strum up, strum down, then strum up. It's pretty easy to hear.

[C]
e ---0----0--0--0--0---
B ---1----1--1--1--1---
G ---0----0--0--0--0---
D ------2--------------
A -3-------------------
E ---------------------
