One More Cup of Coffee (Valley Below)

  • Your breath is sweet
    Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky
    Your back is straight, your hair is smooth
    On the pillow where you lie
    But I don't sense affection
    No gratitude or love
    Your loyalty is not to me
    But to the stars above

    One more cup of coffee for the road
    One more cup of coffee 'fore I go
    To the valley below

    Your daddy, he's an outlaw
    And a wanderer by trade
    He'll teach you how to pick and choose
    And how to throw the blade
    He oversees his kingdom
    So no stranger does intrude
    His voice it trembles as he's calling out
    For another plate of food

    One more cup of coffee for the road
    One more cup of coffee 'fore I go
    To the valley below

    Your sister sees the future
    Like your mama and yourself
    You've never learned to read or write
    There's no books upon your shelf
    And your pleasure knows no limits
    Your voice is like a meadowlark
    But your heart is like an ocean
    Mysterious and dark

    One more cup of coffee for the road
    One more cup of coffee 'fore I go
    To the valley below Writer/s: Bob Dylan, Dylan Bob

  • Elena from Nyc By Way Of RussiaJust discovered this song. May 2020. One of my favorite songs ever now.
  • Kunal from IndiaA true Masterpiece of poetry and songwriting that reflects what's inside his mind perhaps his heart. And that Melody this song carries, absolutely wonderful. Thank you Bob for each and every song.
  • Fatih from Turkey, YozgatIt's ridiculous that this is the first comment about this song and there haven't been one before. I wonder if the people haven't discovered the song yet or not have the taste of music!!! The way Bob uses his voice is legendary.
