  • Lyrics: EMMA’S CAFÉ I met Grampa and his old friends here at Emma’s Café The wood stove was blazing as country music played Sweet Emma was pouring coffee and serving homemade pie Old men telling stories that make you laugh or cry. Grampa said, “This story you haven’t heard before It started with that jingle on Emma’s new screen door A young lady came in; her car had broken down Never saw such a beauty in our small country town.” Chorus Talkin about life and love Talkin’ about the good old days Best friends until the end Here at Emma’s Café. That lady was high class; it was plain to see She said, “Hello, could someone here help me?” Grampa said, “I jumped right up to give her a helping hand For an ole country boy, I was a lucky man. “Grampa said it happened more than 50 years ago I’m glad she got stranded in the morning snow That was my lucky day; that lady became my wife And that’s the best story of this old man’s life Repeat Chorus Now the café’s lost business since the interstate came through The young folks only hang out in places that are new Rock music is screaming as they play video games Cell phones keep ringing; that’s the way life has changed So the café’s run down and Emma’s barely hanging on For a few friends she opens up – soon after dawn You won’t hear many jingles on her screen door these days But often I still go back in time – here at Emma’s Café Repeat Chorus Tag Here at Emma’s Café.
