This song is a simple one, but with a deep soul. Enjoy it ! It rolls!!! 

All you need to make this listenable is to play E dur and C dur chords as written here:

Legend: (0) – play quietly or do not play
               ~  -  let the note sound  

Verse+Chorus:
           E                             C
e---0---0--00--0--0--00---0--0—00-0-0-----------------------------–--||

I΄m sure the chords are alright ΄cause I΄ve seen him play this song live on mtv2. 
The lyrics are taken from an original booklet, so.....here they are!

 E                                                                 C
She smelled like flowers, she tastes like toffee
 E                                                           C   
She kissed me slowly, she held me softly
 E                                                          C
Got too close and she backed up off me
 E                                                               C
Left me stone cold sober, just like black coffee
                                 E                       C          
Just like black coffee

 E                                                                       C
She told me that she΄d always been thinkin΄ of  me
She said she wanted me to know that she really did love me
She said she never put no one else above me
Except her monkey, she΄s like a junkie, just like a junkie, just like a junkie
Just like a junkie

It was April 25th, it΄s up around 80
Found a spot out in the park where the grass is shady
She said her mom΄s from Jamaica, her father΄s from Haiti
She΄s such a pretty lady, she΄s such a lady

She smelled like flowers, she tastes like toffee
She kissed me slowly, she held me softly
Got too close and she backed up off me
Left me stone cold sober, just like black coffee
Just like black coffee, just like black coffee
Just like black coffee
In the ends  are a small changes throughout the whole song, ya know; in these parts just cut off the end of the riff...


A great song by a great artist. No comments!
