This is my transcription of 'Blue Valentines' by Tom Waits, on
the album 'Blue Valentine' ( actually one of the songs that hooked me
to Tom Waits !).

It is  note-for-note for the intro and the first verse ( first
80 seconds of the song on the album). Then there are some slight
variations I didn't want to tab.

As the rhythm of this song is not very regular, I didn't try to
match the words on the notes(I think it wouldn't make sense with
such a song). Though, the first note of each 'measure' should be
played together with the word that is just below it.

The complete lyrics are included in the album so I didn't write them all.
Title : Blue Valentines
Author : Tom Waits
