Bright Morning Light

Song Author Larry Kingston Performer: David Allan Coe Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]She was a waitress in a [F]west Texas dance hall
[C]I was a cowboy with a [G7]throat full of [C]sand
I called her honey when [F]she brought my whiskey
And [C]later I left there [G7]holding her [C]hand

Then we walked down the street to [F]a tumble down hotel
[C]Where she had a room on a [G7]cold second [C]floor
And that room looked like hell just a [F]bed and a table
[C]A shade on the window and a [G7]lock on the [C]door

[G7]I said to myself she's [F]cheap and she's easy
But she [C]don't look half bad I'll stay for the [G7]night
[C]But I'll leave when it's early [F]cause I've got this feeling
[C]She won't look so good in the [G7]bright morning [C]light

Yeah I've known some devils and [F]I've known some angels
[C]I once had a woman on the [G7]Mexico [C]line
But I've never been touched like [F]that woman touched me
[C]She lay there beside me and [G7]crawled in my [C]mind

And we talked and we smoked and [F]made love till morning
[C]The sun came a streaming through a [G7]hole in the [C]shade
And it fell like a spotlight on her [F]face and her body
[C]And it hung like a halo round the [G7]bed where we [C]lay  

[G7]I said to myself she's [F]cheap and she's easy
But she [C]don't look half bad I guess I'll stay for the [G7]night
[C]But I'll tell you boys that was five years ago [F]and Lord God what a woman
[C]She still looks as good in the [G7]bright morning [C]light


She was a waitress in a west Texas dance hall
I was a cowboy with a throat full of sand

And later I left there holding her hand

Then we walked down the street to a tumble down hotel
Where she had a room on a cold second floor
And that room looked like hell just a bed and a table
A shade on the window and a lock on the door

I said to myself she's cheap and she's easy
But she don't look half bad I'll stay for the night
But I'll leave when it's early cause I've got this feeling
She won't look so good in the bright morning light

Yeah I've known some devils and I've known some angels
I once had a woman on the Mexico line
But I've never been touched like that woman touched me
She lay there beside me and crawled in my mind

And we talked and we smoked and made love till morning
The sun came a streaming through a hole in the shade
And it fell like a spotlight on her face and her body
And it hung like a halo round the bed where we lay

I said to myself she's cheap and she's easy
But she don't look half bad I guess I'll stay for the night
But I'll tell you boys that was five years ago and Lord God what a woman
She still looks as good in the bright morning light
