Smokey Joe's Cafe Lyrics

Artist: Buddy Holly
Album: Giant

One day while I was eating down at Smokey Joe€™s Cafe
a-sittin€™ there readin€™ down at Smokey Joe€™s Cafe
a chicken walked in through the door
that I had never seen before
at least I never saw her down at Smokey Joe€™s Cafe
and it scared me when she sat right down next to me

Her knees were almost touching mine at Smokey Joe€™s Cafe
a chill was runnin€™down my spine at Smokey Joe€™s Cafe
I could smell her sweet perfume
she smiled and made my heart go boom
and everybody room at Smokey Joe€™s Cafe
they said €œbe careful - that chick belongs to Smokey Joe€?

And from behind the counter - I saw a man
a chef€™s hat on his head and a knife in his hand
he grabbed me by the collar and began to shout
€œyou better eat up all your beans, boy & clear right on out!€?

Well, I know I€™ll never eat again at Smokey Joe€™s Cafe
and so I€™ll never see again at Smokey Joe€™s Cafe
I€™d rather eat my chili beans at Jim€™s or Jack€™s or John€™s or Gene€™s
than take my chances eating down at Smokey Joe€™s Cafe
I risked my life when that Smokey Joe€™s a crazy fool
