lyrics

The Blue Plate Special
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne

1.
Went out for some ham hocks.
Lookin for cabbage too.
I could already smell the cornbread.
But I imagined the taste of you.

Chorus:
The blue plate special, the blue plate special.
Blue, just thinking' of you.

2.
It was heatin’ up in the kitchen.
I ordered the soup of the day.
When the waitress brought it to me.
I knew exactly what to say,

"The blue plate special, the blue plate special."
Blue, just thinkin' of you.

Bridge:
I’ll never be satisfied, at least I don’t know how,
With these crumbs before me now.

3.
Eggs fryin on the griddle.
Hash browns sizzlin’ for real.
Coffee hot and creamy.
Never 'sausage' a meal.

The blue plate special, the blue plate special.
Blue, just thinkin' of you.
Blue, just thinkin' of you.
