Cigarettes and coffee?

Cigarettes and coffee?

Postby NashvilleMike » Sat Feb 27, 2010 7:28 am

I heard this on XM it sounded like JGB from the 80's but it is not listed on the Jerry site or here as a song played. Anybody know when it was played live or even if the song title is correct?
It all rolls into one and nothing comes for free
There's nothing you can hold for very long
And when you hear that song come crying like the wind
It seems like all this life was just a dream

It is JGB its from the movie "Smoke" soundtrack circa 1993 Jerry also recorded "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" by Jerome Kern who Jerry is actually named after.

Comes up with chords if you add "redding" to the search (they mistakenly credit him with writing it).
