Downtown Tom Waits
by Tom Waits
red pants and the sugarman in the temple street gloom,
d[Bm7]rinkin' chivas regal in a f[Em7]our dollar room
just [Bm7]another dead soldier in a [Em7]powder blue night,
[Bm7]sugarman says baby every[Em7]thing's alright,
goin' [Bm7]down[Em7]town, [Bm7]down[Em7]town, [F#5]down...
goin' [Bm7]down[Em7]town, [F#5]down!
montclaire de havelin doin' the st. vitus dance, lookin' for someone to chop
the lumber in his pants, how am i gonna unload all of this ice and all this
mink, all the traffic in the street but it's so hard to think, goin' downtown
frankie's wearin' lipstick pierre cardin, i swear to god i seen him holdin'
hands with jimmy bond, sally's high on crank and hungry for some sweets, she's
fem in the sheets but she's butch in the streets, goin' downtown down
it's the cool of the evening the sun's goin' down, i want to hold you in my
arms i want to push you around, i want to break your bottle and spill out all
your charms, come on baby we'll set off all the burglar alarms, goin' downtown
red pants and the sugarman in the temple, drinkin' chivas regal in a four
dollar room, just another dead soldier in a powder blue night, red pants turns
to sugarman and says everything's alright, goin' downtown down downtown.
*one note: chords I used in this song sounds better played like this...
Hm7 7th EADGBe: 02x000
Em7 7th 002x00
F#5 9th 0022xx ....i don't play the "e" string so often, I even play first
...and sorry, I don't know the exact names of these chords so I had to do it like this.
any suggestions, please e-mail me: email@example.com...thanks!
