[Verse I]                                                                       
          G          C                    G              C                      
This is a story of a coffee shop set with glass cups and saucers                
                                                                                
  G                  C    G                C                                    
A waitress from Guatamala bearing a cup of Java                                 
                                                                                
  G           C                   G              C                              
A crazy hairy Jew who knew, and a friend leaving school                         
                                                                                
    G                  C                  D7                                    
The owner traveled the world and knew the beans                                 
                                                                                
[Chorus]                                                                        
  G                  C    G                C                                    
A waitress from Guatamala bearing a cup of Java                                 
                                                                                
[Verse II]                                                                      
G             C               G              C                                  
Every day the baker came with fresh cake and pastries.                          
    G        C             G                 C                                  
The cook set sandwiches on glass plates with metal forks                        
    G         C                G            C                                   
The diswasher washed the cups, saucers, and plates                              
        G                  C                    D                               
And the owner traveled the world and bought the beans                           
    [Chorus]                                                                        
[Verse III]                                                                     
    G            C              G                  C                      D7    
The man from the chain came and tasted the coffee, ate the sandwiches and cake. 
                                                                                
    D  G           C            C                                               
And he saw an open space on his map                                             
   G                 C                                                          
He gave the owner an offer.                                                     
    G                   C                   D7                                  
The owner looked at his watch, and sold the shop.                               
[Chorus]                                                                        
[Verse IV]                                                                      
G       C           G         C                                                 
Now the coffee shop has a new name                                              
    G               C             G                 C                           
The coffee comes in paper cups, a trash can, by the door                        
        G             C                                                         
and the dishwasher is gone.                                                     
    G                     C            G                      C                 
The sandwiches wrapped in plastic, the pastries and cakes are frozen            
G         C            G     C                   G              C               
There are tables and a crazy jew who knew, and a friend leaving school,         
       G                  C    G                C                               
but no waitress from Guatamala bearing a cup of Java                            
        G                 C                   D7                                
And the owner travels the world and knows his beans
