Hoist That Rag

Tom Waits

 AmDmEAm
 AmDm
Well I learned the trade
 EAm
From Piggy Knowles
 AmDmE
Sing Sing Tommy Shay Boys
 AmDmEAm
God used me as a hammer boys
 AmDmE
To beat his weary drum today
 AmDmEAm
Hoist that rag (2x)       

 AmDmEAm
The sun is up the world is flat
Damn good address for a rat
The smell of blood
The Drone of flies
You know what to do if
The baby cries

Hoist that rag (2x)

 AmDmEAm
Well we stick our fingers in the ground,
heave and turn the world around
Smoke is blacking out the sun
At night I pray and clean my gun
The cracked bell rings as the ghost bird sings
and the gods go beggin here
So just open fire when you hit the shore
All is fair in love and war

Hoist that rag (4x)
