Please Call Me, Baby  Tom Waits

Please Call Me Baby, from the BRILLIANT album The Heart of Saturday Night.
Upon request of a man of low moral fiber. Here is another one of my favorites that
- I'm afraid - has not been treated well by the Internet chord finding community.
At the risk of sounding hypocritical, I'm aware that this probably isn't exactly
right. But it's tricky to mimic a Waits piano. As of today and based on my
research, this is the closest version you'll find on the web at the moment.
Enjoy. It's a beautiful song.

Well the [G]evening [Am7]fell just [Gmaj7]like a [C]star, [B7sus4]left a trail [B7]behind
You [Em]spit as you [Em/F#]slam out the [G]door[G/A] [G/B] [C] [F#dim7]
If [G]this is [Am7]love we're [Gmaj7]crazy [C]cos we [B7sus4]fight like cats and [B7]dogs
I just [Em]know there's [Em/F#]got to be [G]more[G/A] [G/B] [C] [F#dim7]
[G] So please[Am7] call me [Gmaj7]baby [C] [C/B] [Am] wherever you [B7sus4]are[B7]
It's too [Em]cold to be out [Em/F#]walking in the [G]street[G/A]s[G/B] [C] [F#dim7]
We do [G]crazy [Am7]things when we're [Gmaj7]wounded[C] every[B7sus4]one's a [B7]bit in[Em]san[Em/F#]e
I don't [G]want you [G7]catching your [C]death of [C/B]cold
Out [Am7]walking[D7] in the [G]rain
I admit that I ain't no angel, I admit that I ain't no saint
I'm selfish and cruel but you're blind
If I exorcise my devils well my angels may leave too
When they leave they're so hard to find
Chorus
We're always at each other's throats you know it drives me up the wall
Most of the time I'm just blowing off steam
And I wish to God you'd leave me baby I wish to God you'd stay
Life's so different than it is in your dreams
Chorus
