Time

Tom Waits

 D
 The smart money's on Harlow
 D
 And the moon is in the street
 GA7D
The shadow boys are breaking all the laws
 DA7
And you're east of East Saint Louis
 D
And the wind is making speeches
 GA7
And the rain sounds like a round of applause

 D
 Napoleon is weeping
 D
 In the carnival saloon
 GA7D
His invisible fiance's in the mirror
 DA7
And the band is going home
 D
It's raining hammers, it's raining nails
 GA7
It's true there's nothing left for him down here

CHORUS:

 DA7D
And it's time, time, time
 GDA7
And it's time, time, time
 DF#mGEm
And it's time, time, time, that you love
 DA7D
And it's time, time, time

VERSE 2:

 D
 And they all pretend they're orphans
 D
 And their memory's like a train
 GA7D
You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
 DA7
And the things you can't remember
 D
Tell the things you can't forget
 GA7
That history puts a saint in every dream

 D
 Well she said she'd stick around
 D
 Until the bandages came off
 GA7D
But these mama's boys just don't know when to quit
 DA7
And Matilda asks the sailors
 D
Are those dreams or are those prayers?
 GA7
So close your eys, son and this won't hurt a bit

CHORUS...

VERSE 3:

 D
 Well things are pretty lousy
 D
 For a calendar girl
 GA7D
The boys just dive right off the cars and into the street
 DA7
And when they're on a roll
 D
She pulls a razor from her boot
 GA7
And a thousand pigeons fall around her feet

 D
 So put a candle in the window
 D
 And a kiss upon his lips
 GA7D
As the dish outside the window fills with rain
 DA7
 Just like a stranger
 D
With the weeds in your heart
 GA7
And pay the fiddler off 'till I come back again

The first line is "The smart money is on Harlow." not Harlem.
