G
It's two in the morning on Saturday night 
   C                   G
At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe
    C                     G
The onions are frying the neon is bright  
        A7                      D7
And the juke box is starting to play
        G
And the sign on the wall says in God we trust
    C                   G
All others will have to pay 
     C                     G
It's two in the morning on Saturday night
   D7                  G
At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe 
  
G                                         
The short order cook with the Mama Tattoo 
     C                       G     C
He's turning them hamburgers slow  eggs over easy 
G                       A7                      D7
Whole wheat down do you all want that coffee to go 
   G
He never once dreamed as a rodeo star 
     C                   G       C
That he'd wind up here today  at two in the morning 
                     D7                  G
On Saturday night at Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe 
 
G 
There's a tall skinny girl in the booth in the back
        C                       G
Wearing jeans and a second hand fur 
      C                       G
She's been to the doctor then called up the man 
        A7                         D7
And now wonders just where she can turn 
    G
She stares at her coffee then looks toward the ceiling 
    C                            G
But Lord it's a strange place to pray 
   C                     G
At two in the morning on Saturday night 
   D7                  G
At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe 
  
G                        
There's a guy in a tux and he stands in the corner 
C                        G
Feeding the juke box his dimes 
   C                    G
He just had a woman and thought that he'd bought her 
   A7                           D7
But found he'd just rented some time 
    G
And he couldn't sleep so he came back to see 
   C                    G
If anyone else wants to play 
   C                     G
At two in the morning on Saturday night 
   D7                  G
At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe 
  
G 
Now there's an old dollar bill in a frame on the wall 
    C                        G
The first one that Rose ever made 
       C                     G
It was once worth a dollar a long time ago 
         A7                     D7
But like Rose it's beginning to fade 
      G
She's back of the register dreaming of someone 
    C                           G
And how things would be if he'd stayed 
         C                     G
But it's two in the morning on Saturday night 
   D7                  G
At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe 
 
G                                                    
The stoop shouldered man and his frizzy haired woman 
     C                            G
It's strange how their eyes never meet 
     C                          G
He's playing the pinball she's fixing the blanket 
       A7                 D7
Of the baby asleep on the seat 
    G
And he's out of work and she's putting on weight 
          C                      G
Hell they never did have much to say
         C                     G
But it's two in the morning on Saturday night 
   D7                  G
At Rosalie's good eats cafe 
 
G 
The waitress Darlene she sits at the counter 
C                        G
Painting her fingernails blue 
        C                         G
And the short order cook he yells move it or lose it 
    A7                  D7       G
And pick up an order of stew but someday 
                                   C                 G
A rich handsome man'll walk in and carry her far far away 
     C                     G
From two in the morning on Saturday night 
   D7                  G
At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe 
 
 
G 
A shaggy haired hippie he's finished his meal 
         C                          G
And he's counting the change in his jeans 
  C                     G
A burger and coffee are eighty five cents
    A7                   D7
And he's only got twenty three 
   G
He smiles at Rose and she winks back at him 
    C                           G
But Lord that's a high price to pay 
   C                     G
At two in the morning on Saturday night 
   D7                  G
At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe 
  
G                                       
A baby faced sailor leans on the phone 
    C                G
And dials the number again 
          C                        G
While the guy in the tux tells the girl in the jeans
          A7                    D7
About the wonderful places he's been 
      G
And a wino comes in off the street and starts shouting 
          C                        G
About the fortunes that he through away 
   
    C                    G
And Rosalie's asking the shaggy haired hippie 
   C                        G
If he's got a warm place to stay 
        C                        G
And the short order cook takes a five from the till 
      C                 G
While Rosalie's looking away 
        C                      G
And the onions keep frying the neon is bright 
        C                     G
And the juke box continues to play 
         C                     G
And it's two in the morning on Saturday night 
   D7                  G
At Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe
