    Name or artist of this late 70's song
    Unfortunately, about all I remember of the lyrics is "hot, black coffee". I had it on an (dating myself here) 8 track. I realize it was bootleg now, although I didn't know it then. So I don't even have a vision of the artwork to go from. I was thinking Hot Tuna but I don't think that's right. It was very soulful and had a female and male singer, if I remember right. Anyone think they might know?

    Humble Pie - Black Coffee

    Black coffee is my name
    Black coffee is not a thing
    Black coffee freshly ground and fully packed
    Hot black coffee boys
    Black coffee
    That's where it's at
    Mean it!
    Way back you all know
    Since I don't know when
    See I got to move on
    Before I was 10
    You see my skin is white
    But my soul is black
    So hot black coffee
    That's where it's at
    Black coffee
    That's what I'm talkin' about boys
    Black coffee
    That's what I mean
    Black coffee
    Ooh! You've got to feel it in your hand
    Black coffee
    Hmm! Yer!
    Black coffee
    Well you hear that
    Some black tea
    Well it can't compare with me
    That's right
    Black tea well it's as good as
    It's as good as
    It's as good as it can be
    But it's a cup of black coffee
    That a working man needs to see yer
    In America, well it's the land of the free
    You can get what you want if you've got some do re me
    Travelling far and I work like a slave
    Now how can you get and you know I get L.A.
    I get me a job and I build me a place
    I got a spit of black coffee
    Oh! How good it tastes!
    I said a dime is all it costs in the states
    For a cup of black coffee
    How good it tastes!
    Black coffee
    All right
    Black coffee
    Black coffee
    It's what I want now
    It's what I need
    Black coffee
    To suit my soul
    To suit my soul now
    Black coffee
    It's what I want
    It's what I need
    Black coffee
    It's where it's at
    It's where it's at
    Black coffee
    It's where it's at
    It's where it's at
