One More Cup Of Coffee (April 1976)

Your sister sees the future
She was born to read my mind
She always takes the beauty
But then her words are not that kind

Just three days later the same song receives a different treatment:

Your sister sees the future
She was born to read my mind
She’s always in the moon
But she's so hard to find

28 April 1976, Pensacola, FL

The original version from the Desire album:

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

  1. Nice, thanks! (are you sure it isn't 'she's always in the room')

  2. Sounds more like "she overtakes the beauty" to me?

  3. Thanks for everybody's thoughts. We had another listen and these two lines are pretty tough to figure out for certain. We also considered, "She overstates the beauty," but decided against it. Thanks!

  4. I'll go with the original album version.

    Great that he experiments, changes, tries different things.

    In this case, though, the original strikes me as far and away the best.

    This is a very intriguing site. Keep up the mind-boggling work!

  5. I always thought the live Budokan version is by far the best.

    The percussion, sax, and rhythm guitar arrangements are exquisite, as they are on many song versions on that album.
