23 Steps

I discovered this simple 2-chord tropical sounding pattern a few years ago. I have a mild number obsession. I don’t know where the whole coffee thing came from. I drink it but it’s not my religion or anything.

A6 [6677] to B6 [8899]

23 steps from the deck to the sand
23 more to the water
46 steps we take hand in hand
ocean son, sunshine’s daughter

gulls cry
we lie
under the blue
1 love
coffee for 2

17 sunrises slide up the wall
shadows melting away
17 orangey pink sunsets fall
melting the colors to grey


2 cups of coffee under the blue
17 days with nothing to do
46 steps from the sea


coffee for 2 (repeat)
