Track Name: Rich Mahan - Rich Mahan - Coffee In The Morning
New recording from the new Cocktail Recording Lounge, "The Hickory Hole"
lyrics
Coffee in the morning, Tea in the afternoon
Coffee in the morning, Tea in the afternoon
Each have their own time of day, So don’t get in the way
Of a man when he wants to sip on his favorite brew
Coffee in the morning, Tea in the afternoon

I’m a creature of habit, I like my tea unsweet
My coffee black and my glass of whiskey neat
When 5’Oclock Rolls around, you can bet I’m bourbon bound
So grab your guitar and let’s pick a tune or two
Coffee in the morning, Tea in the afternoon

Here’s a little something a friend taught me how to do
You just boil some simple syrup with a rosemary sprig or two
I haven’t tried it in coffee or tea, But it’s great in ol Jim Beam
The next time you’re over, I’ll introduce you two
Coffee in the morning, Tea in the afternoon
