Cold Cold Ground  Tom Waits


Tom Waits from the album Franks Wild Years
[D]Crest fallen sidekick in an [Bm]old cafe
never [D]slept with a dream before he [Bm]had to go away
there's a [D]bell in the tower uncle [Bm]Ray bought a round
never [G]worry 'bout the army
A7 A7Sus4 D
in the cold cold ground
cold cold [Bm]ground
cold cold [D]ground
cold cold [Bm]ground
Now don't be a cry baby when there's wood in the shed
there's a bird in the chimeny and a stone in my bed
when the road's washed out they pass a bottle around
and waits in the arms
of the cold cold . . .
there's a ribbon in the willow and a tire swing rope
and a briar patch of berries takin' over the slope
the cat'll sleep in the mailbox and we'll never go to town
till we bury every dream
in the cold cold . . .
Gimme a Winchester rifle and a whole box of shells
blow the roof of the goat barn let it roll down the hill
the piano is firewood Times Square is a dream
I find we lay down together
in the cold cold . .
Call the cops on the Breadloves bring a bible and a rope
and a whole box of rebel and a bar of soap
make a pile of trunk tires
and burn 'em all down bring a dollar with you baby
in the cold cold . . .
Take a weather vane rooster throw rocks at his head
stop talking to the neighbors till we all go dead
beware of my temper and the dog that I found
break all the windows
in the cold cold . . .
On the D's during the cold cold ground theme, do some "touchdowns" on Dsus4
