Whistle Down the Wind  Tom Waits

[Verse 1] 
[D]I grew [A]up here now al[D]l of my li[G]fe
But I dr[Em]eamed som[A]eday I'd g[D]o[G] [D]
Where the bl[D]ue-eyed gi[A]rls and r[D]ed guit[G]ars and
The na[Em]ked riv[A]ers fl[D]ow[G] [D]
[G]I'm not all I thought I'd be
I al[F#m]ways stayed aro[D]und
I'[G]ve been as far as Mercy and Grand
Fr[Em]ozen to the gr[A7]ound
[Verse 2] 
[D]I can't s[A]tay here and I'm sc[D]ared to leav[G]e
Just [Em]kiss me o[A]nce and th[D]en
I'll g[D]o to he[A]ll, I m[D]ight as w[G]ell
Be whis[Em]tlin' do[A]wn the wi[D]nd[G] [D]
The [G]bus is at the co[D]rner
The [G]clock on the w[D]all
Br[G]oken down win[F#m]dmill
There's n[A]o wind at all
I've y[G]elled and I cu[D]rsed
If I s[G]tay here I'll r[D]ust
I'm st[G]uck like a sh[Bm]ipwreck
Ou[A]t here in the dust
[Instrumental Break] 
[D] [A] [D] [G] [Em] [A] [D] [D] [A] [D] [G] [Em] [A] [D] [G] [D]  
[Verse 3] 
The s[D]ky is r[A]ed and the worl[D]d's on fi[G]re
And the co[Em]rn is ta[A]ller than me[D]
The d[D]og is t[A]ied to a w[D]agon of r[G]ain
And the r[Em]oad is as w[A]et as the s[D]ea[G] [D]
[Cborus 2] 
And so[G]metimes the music from a dance
Will ca[F#m]rry across the plai[D]ns
And the pl[G]aces that I'm dreaming of
Do they dr[Em]eam only of m[A7]e?
[Verse 4] 
There are pl[D]aces wh[A]ere they ne[D]ver sle[G]ep
And the ci[Em]rcus nev[A]er end[D]s
So [D]I will t[A]ake the M[D]arleybone co[G]ach
And be wh[Em]istling d[A]own the w[D]ind[G] [D]
so [D]I will t[A]ake the [D]Marleybone co[G]ach
[Em]Whistling d[A]own the wi[D]nd [G] [D]
