I Wish I Was In New Orleans  Tom Waits

[C]C   [Am7]C7   [D7]F   [Dm7]Em7  [G]Ebdim7       Ebdim7 = 001212
[C]    [G7]     [C]    [G7]                        
Well I [C]wish  I   [C7]was  in   [F]New     Or[C/G]leans
[C]I   can   [Am7]see  it   [Dm7]in my drea[G7]ms
[C]Arm  in   [C7]arm down  [F]Bur  gun  [C/G]dy
[C]A bottle  [Am7]and   my  [Dm7]friends [G7]and m[C]e   [C7]
Hoist up a [G7]few tall  cool ones play some
[C]pool and  [Am7]listen to that [D7]tenor saxophone
[G]callin me [G7]home.


And I can hear the band begin
"When the Saints Go Marchin' In"
By the whiskers on my chin
New Orleans I'll be there

I'll drink you under the table
beer red nose, go for walks
the old haunts what I wants
is red beans and rice

And wear the dress I like so well
Meet me at the old saloon
Make sure there's a Dixie Moon
New Orleans I'll be there

And deal the cards, roll the dice
If it ain't that ole Chuck E. Weiss
And Claythorn Avenue me and you
Sam Jones and all

And I wish I was in New Orleans
I can see it in my dreams
Arm in arm down Burgundy
A b[C]ottle a[F]nd, my fr[C]iends and [F]me,
New [C]Orleans [D7]I'll [G]be [Ab]there [C]
