Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Time  Tom Waits

Well the sm[D]art money's on Harlow and the m[D]oon is in the street
And the sh[G]adow boys are b[A7]reaking all the l[D]aws
And you're e[G]ast of East Saint L[A7]ouis and the w[D]ind is making speeches
And the r[G]ain sounds like a round of app[A7sus4]lause  [-]  [A7]
And Nap[D]oleon is weeping in a c[D]arnival saloon
His inv[G]isible f[A7]iancee's in the [D]mirror
And the b[G]and is going h[A7]ome, it's raining h[D]ammers, it's raining nails
And it's tr[G]ue there's nothing left for h[A7sus4]im down[-] h[A7]ere


Chorus:

   And it's t[D]ime t[A7]ime  t[D]ime, and it's t[G]ime  [Bm/E]time   [A7sus4]time   [-]  [A7]
   And it's t[D]ime  [F#m]time  t[G]ime that you l[Em]ove
(Repeat)

And they all pretend they're orphans and their memory's like a train
You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
And the things you can't remember tell the things you can't forget
That history puts a saint in every dream

Well she said she'd stick around until the bandages came off
But these mama's boys just don't know when to quit
And Mathilda asks the sailors "Are those dreams or are those prayers?"
So close your eyes, son, and this won't hurt a bit

Oh it's time time time, and it's time time time
And it's time time time that you love
And it's time time time

[D]    [D]                                
Well things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
The boys just dive right off the cars and splash into the street
And when they're on a roll she pulls a razor from her boot
And a thousand pigeons fall around her feet
So put a candle in the window and a kiss upon his lips
As the dish outside the window fills with rain
Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
And pay the fiddler off 'til I come back again

Oh it's time time time, and it's time time time
And it's time time time that you love
And it's time time time
And it's time time time, and it's time time time
And it's time time time that you love
And it's time time time
