Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Never Let Go  Tom Waits

Well, [C]ring the bell[Am] backwards and[F] bury the [G]axe

[C]Fall down on your[Am] knees in the[G] dirt

[C]I'm tied to the[Am] mast between[F] water an[G]d wind
[C]Believe me, you'll[F] never ge[G]t hurt
Our [Am]ring's in the [G]pawnshop, the[F] rain's in th[C]e hole
[Am]            [G]           [F]        [G]                                                                 
Down at the Five Points I -------stand

[C]I'll lose ever[Am]ything
But [F]I won't let[G] go of you[C]r hand
Well, [C]Peter[Am] denied and[F] Judas [G]betrayed
I'll [C]bail with the[Am] roll of[G] the drum
And the [C]wind will[Am] tell the[F] turn from th[G]e wheel
And the [C]watchman is[F] making hi[G]s rounds
Well, [Am]you'll leave me [G]hanging by the[F] skin of [C]my teeth
I've [Am]only got o[G]ne [F]leg t[G]o stand
You can [C]send me to[Am] hell
But I'[F]ll never let[G] go of you[C]r hand
[G]Swing from a rope on a[C] cross-legged dream
[G]Signed with One Eyed[C] Jack's blood
From [F]Temple to Union, to[G] LA and Grand
[F]Walking back home in t[G]he mud
Now [C]I must make[Am] my best of the[F] only wa[G]y home
[C]Molly d[Am]eals onl[G]y in stone
I'm lo[C]st on the[Am] midway, I'm[F] reckless in you[G]r eyes
Just [C]give me a[F] couple mor[G]e throws
I'll [Am]dare you to [G]dine with the[F] cross-legge[C]d knight
[Am]Dare me to [G]jump and[F] I   ---[G]- will
I'll [C]fall from your[Am] grace
But I'[F]ll never let[G] go of you[C]r hand
I'll [F]never let g[G]o of you[C]r hand
Now you go write some tabs, freeloader!
