"Three Cigarettes In An Ashtray" as written by Eddie Miller and W Stevenson....
Two cigarettes in an ashtray
My love and I, in a small cafe
Then a stranger came along
And everything went wrong
Now there's three cigarettes in the ashtray

I watched her take him from me
And his love is no longer my own
Now they are gone
And I sit alone
And watch one cigarette burn away

I watched her take him from me
And his love is no longer my own
Now they are gone
And I sit alone
And watch one cigarette burn away

    My InterpretationThe song is obviously about an affair; the boyfriend/husband fell in love with another woman, possibly a waitress at the small cafe, and eventually left his original girlfriend/wife.
