I Give You...(drumroll)
Ruby's Arms (Tom Waits)

I will [F]leave be[C]hind all [E7]of my c[Am]lothes
I [F]wore when [C]I was w[Dm7]ith yo[G7]u
[F]All I [C]need's my [E7]railroad [Am]boots
[F]And my [C]leather [Dm7]jacket[G7]
As I [F]say good[C]bye to [E7]Ruby's [Am]Arms
Al[F]though my [C]heart is [Dm7]breaking[G7]
I will [F]steal [C]away out [E7]through your [Am]blinds
For [F]soon you [C]will be [Dm7]waking[G7]
The [G]morning [C]light has [A]washed your [Dm]face
And [G7]everythi[C]ng is turning b[Dm7]lue [G7sus4]now[G7]
[G]Hold on [C]to your [A]pillow [Dm]case
There's [G7]nothing [C]I can [Dm7]do [G7sus4]now[G7]
As I [F]say good[C]bye to [E7]Ruby's [Am]Arms
You'll [F]find a[C]nother [Dm7]soldier[G7]
And I [F]swear to [C]God by [E7]christmas [Am]time
There'll be [F]someone [C]else to [Dm7]hold you[G7]
The [G]only [C]thing I'm [A]taking [Dm]is
The [G7]scarf off [C]of your [Dm7]clothes [G7sus4]line[G7]
I'll [G]hurry [C]past your [A]chest of [Dm]drawers
A[G7]nd your [C]broken [Dm7]wind [G7sus4]chimes[G7]
As I [F]say [C]goodbye, I'll [E7]say [Am]goodbye
Say [Dm7]goodbye to [G7sus4]Ruby's A[F]rms[C]
[---]|E7 Am|F C|Dm7 G7|
I will [F]feel my [C]way down the [E7]darkened [Am]hall
[F]Out in[C]to the [Dm7]morning[G7]
The [F]Hoboes [C]at the [E7]freight[Am]yards
Have [F]kept their [C]fires [Dm7]burning[G7]
[F]Jesus [C]Christ this [E7]God damn [Am]rain
Will [F]someone [C]put me [E7]on a [Am]train
I'll [F]never [C]kiss your [E7]lips [Am]again
Or [Dm7]break your [G7sus4]heart[G7]
As I [F]say good[C]bye I'll [E7]say [Am]goodbye
Say [Dm7]goodbye to [G7sus4]Ruby's [F]Arms[C]
