Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Lucinda  Tom Waits

Well they [Am]call me William The Pl[Am]easer
I sold o[Am]pium, fireworks and le[E]ad
Now I'm tel[Am]ling my troubles to st[Dm]rangers
When the sh[Am]adows get l[E]ong I'll be d[Am]ead
Now her h[Am]air was as black as a buggy top[Am]
Skin was as w[Am]hite as a cuttlefish b[E]one
I left Te[Am]xas to follow Lu[Dm]cinda                     [Dm]
          Am         E        Am          e |-X-|---|---|---|

Now I'll never see heaven or home B |---|---|-X-|---|
G |---|-X-|---|---|
Am Am D |---|---|---|---|
I made a wish on silver of moonlight XA |---|---|---|---|
Am E XE |---|---|---|---|
A sly grin and a bowl full of stars
Like a k[Am]id who captures a fi[Dm]refly
And leaves it o[Am]nly to d[E]ie in the j[Am]ar

As I k[Am]ick at the clouds at my ha[Am]nging
As I s[Am]wing out over the cr[E]owd
I will s[Am]earch every face for Luc[Dm]inda's
And she will [Am]go off with [E]me down to h[Am]ell

I th[Am]ought I'd broke loose of Lu[Am]cinda
The [Am]rain returned and so did the w[E]ind
I cast this bu[Am]rden on the God that's with[Dm]in me
I will le[Am]ave this old wo[E]rld and go f[Am]ree                Bmaj
            D                   Am           e |---|-x-|---|---|---|

The devil dances inside empty pockets B |---|-x-|---|-X-|---|
D Am G |---|-x-|---|-X-|---|
But she did'nt want money or pearls D |---|-x-|---|-X-|---|
D Am A |---|-X-|---|---|---|
No, that wasn't enough for Lucinda XE |---|---|---|---|---|
She w[Bmaj]asn't that kind of g[E]irl

Now I've fa[Am]llen from grace for Lu[Am]cinda
Whoever th[Am]ought that hell would be so c[E]old
I did w[Am]ell for an old tin can sa[Dm]ilor
But she wa[Am]nted the b[E]ell in my s[Am]oul

I've spo[Am]ken to God on the mo[Am]untain
And I've s[Am]wam in the Irish s[E]ea
I ate f[Am]ire and drank from the Ga[Dm]nges
And I'll [Am]beg there for me[E]rcy for [Am]me
I th[Am]ought I'd broke loose of Luc[Am]inda
The rain r[Am]eturned and so did the w[E]ind
I was sta[Am]nding outside the W[Dm]hitehorse
Oh but [Am]I was afr[E]aid to go [Am]in
I heard someo[Am]ne pull the tri[Am]gger
Her breasts he[Am]aved in the moonlight ag[E]ain
There was a s[Am]mear of gold in the wi[Dm]ndow
And then [Am]I was the je[E]wel of her s[Am]in
They c[Am]all me William The Pl[Am]easer
I sold o[Am]pium, fireworks and le[E]ad
Now I'm te[Am]lling my troubles to str[Dm]angers
When the sh[Am]adows get lo[E]ng I'll be d[Am]ead
Now her h[Am]air was as black as a bucket of [Am]tar
Skin was as w[Am]hite as a cuttlefish b[E]one
I left T[Am]exas to follow Lu[Dm]cinda
Now I'll ne[Am]ver see he[E]aven or h[Am]ome
No I'll ne[Am]ver see hea[E]ven or h[Am]ome
No I'll ne[Am]ver see hea[E]ven or h[Am]ome
