Fumblin' With the Blues  Tom Waits

I play most 7-chord like they are diplayd below. Kind of blues-chords as I was taught some time ago.
You can get it groooving really good this way, as you are almost sliding down Hm7-A7-G7---F7.

[Bm]Friday left me [F#7]fumblin' with the [Bm]blu[F#7]es[Bm]
Hm7 A7 G7 F#7*
And it's hard to win when you always lose
Because the [Bm7]nightspots[A7] spend your [G7]spirit
Hm7* E7
beat your head against the wall
[Bm]two dead-ends you [F#7]still got to [Bm]cho[F#7]ose[Bm]
You know the [Bm]bartenders[F#7] they all know my [Bm]nam[F#7]e[Bm]
Hm7 A7 G7 F#7*
and they catch me when I'm pulling up lame
Hm7 A7 G7 F#7* Hm7* E7
and I'm a pool-shooting-shimmy-shyester shaking my head
[Bm]when I should be [F#7]living clean[Bm] in[F#7] ste[Bm]ad
You know the [Bm]ladies I've been [F#7]seeing off and [Bm]on[F#7] [Bm]
Hm7 A7 G7 F#7*
well they spend your love then they're gone
Hm7 A7 G7 F#7* Hm7* E7
you can't be loving someone who is savage and cruel
[Bm]Take your [F#7]love and then they [Bm]leave o[F#7]n out of [Bm]town... No they do...

When I'm falling in love, It's such a breeze
but it's standing up that's so hard for me
I wanna sqeeze you but I'm scared to death I'll break your back instead
You know your perfume, well it won't let me be
You know the bartenders they all know my name
and they'll catch me when I'm pulling up lame
and I'm a pool-shooting-shimmy-shyster shaking my head
when I should be living clean in stead
so come on baby, let your love light shine
gotta bury me inside of your fire
cause your eyes are enough to blind me
you're like a-looking at the sun
you gotta whisper tell me I'm the one
come on and whisper tell me I'm the one
gotta whisper tell me I'm the one
come on and whisper tell me I'm the one
