Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe
Bobby Bare

This is an Great Old Bobby Bare Song off his Lullaby's, Legends & Lies Album
from about 1973, it was written by Shel Silverstein

[G] It's two in the morning, on Saturday night, at [C] Rosalie's Good Eats
[G]Cafe, the [C] onions are frying, the [G] neon is bright, and the [A7]
juke box is starting to [D7] play, and the [G] sign on the wall says in God
we trust, all [C]others have to [G] pay, It's [C] two in the morning, on [G]
Saturday night, at [D7] Rosalie's Good Eats [G]Cafe.


[G] The short order cook with the Mama Tattoo, He's [C] turning them
hamburgers [G] slow, [C] eggs over easy, [G] whole wheat down, do you
[A7]all want that coffee to [D7] go, he [G] never once dreamed, as a rodeo
star, that [C] he'd wind up here to[G]day, at [C] two in the morning, on [G]
Saturday night, at [D7] Rosalie's Good Eats [G]Cafe.


[G] There's a tall skinny girl in the booth in the back, wearing [C] jeans
and a
second hand [G] fur, she's [C] been to the doctor, then [G]called up the
man, and now [A7] wonders just where she can [D7]turn, she [G] stares at her
coffee then looks toward the ceiling, but [C] Lord it's a strange place to
[G] pray, at [C] two in the morning, on [G]Saturday night, at [D7] Rosalie's
Good Eats [G]Cafe.


[G] There's a guy in a tux, and he stands in the corner, [C] feeding the
juke box
his [G] dimes, he [C] just had a woman, and [G] thought that he'd bought
her, but [A7] found he'd just rented some [D7] time, and [G] he couldn't
sleep, so he came back to see, if  [C] anyone else wants to [G] play, at [C]
two in the morning, on [G] Saturday night, at [D7] Rosalie's Good Eats
[G]Cafe.


[G] Now there's an old dollar bill in a frame on the wall, the [C] first one
that
Rose ever [G] made, it was [C] once worth a dollar, a [G] long time ago, but
like [A7] Rose it's beginning to [D7] fade, She's [G] back of the register,
dreaming of someone, and [C] how things would be if he'd [G] stayed, but it'
s [C] two in the morning, on [G] Saturday night, at [D]Rosalie's Good Eats
[G] Cafe.


[G] The stoop shouldered man and his frizzy haired woman, it's [C] strange
how their eyes never [G] meet, [C]he's playing the pinball, she's [G] fixing
the blanket of the [A7] baby asleep on the [D7] seat, and [G] he's out of
work, and she's putting on weight, hell they [C] never did have much to [G]
say, but it's [C] two in the morning on [G] Saturday night, at [D7] Rosalie'
s good eats [G]cafe.


[G]The waitress Darlene, she sits at the counter, [C] painting her
fingernails [G]blue, and the [C] short order cook he yells [G] move it or
lose it, and [A7] pick up an order of [D7] stew, but [G] someday a rich
handsome man'll walk in and [C] carry her far, far a[G]way, from [C]two in
the morning, on [G] Saturday night, at [D7] Rosalie's Good Eats [G] Cafe.


[G] A shaggy haired hippie, he's finished his meal, and he's [C]counting the
change in his [G] jeans, a [C] burger and coffee are [G] eighty five cents,
and [A7] he's only got twenty [D7]three, he [G] smiles at Rose, and she
winks back at him, but [C] Lord that's a high price to [G] pay, at [C] two
in the morning, on [G]Saturday night, at [D7] Rosalie's Good Eats [G]Cafe.


[G]A baby faced sailor, leans on the phone, and [C] dials the number
[G]again, while the [C] guy in the tux tells the [G] girl in the jeans,
about the [A7]wonderful places he's [D7] been, and a [G]wino comes in off
the street and starts shouting about the [C] fortunes that he through
a[G]way, and [C]Rosalie's asking the [G] shaggy haired hippie, if  [C] he's
got a warm place to [G] stay, and the [C] short order cook takes a [G] five
from the till, while [C]Rosalie's looking [G] away, and the [C] onions keep
frying, the [G] neon
is bright, and the [C] juke box continues to [G] play, and it's [C] two in
the morning, on [G] Saturday night, at [D7] Rosalie's Good Eats [G] Cafe.
