Figuring out the words for this one is as challenging as the music. I left "----" in a few spots. Anyone speak Waits? There is one chord whose correct name somewhat eludes me. After checking with Paul Zimmerman's chord theory page on Olga, I think it is Ebdim7, which would be Eb Gb Bbb Dbb or Eb Gb A C.
