Rain dogs  Tom Waits

Rain dogs
Tom Waits from the album 'Rain dogs'
Inside a broken clock
Splashing the wine
With all the [F]rain dogs
Taxi, we'd rather walk
Huddle a doorway
with the [F]rain dogs
B7 em
For I am a rain dog too
H7 em
Oh, how we danced and we swallowed the night
H7 em
For it was all ripe for dreaming
H7 em
Oh how we danced away all of the light
am em F#7 H7
We've always been out of our minds
The rum pours out strong and thin
Beats out the dustmen
with the [F]rain dogs
Aboard a shipwrecked train
give my umbrella
to the [F]rain dogs
H7 em
for I am a rain dog too
H7 em
Oh, how we danced with the rose of Tralee
H7 em
Her long hair black as a raven
H7 em
Oh, how we danced and you wispered to me
am em F#7 H7
You'll never be going back home
On 'Rain dogs' this song is played in G-minor, but both my voice
and my guitar prefers singing it in E-minor. To transpose it back:
em -> gm
[F]-> Ab
H7 -> d7
am -> cm
F#7 -> A7
Have fun!
