Clap Hands  Tom Waits

...CLAP HANDS... by Tom Waits
 
 ----------------.............

*from 'Rain Dogs' (1985)*
Intro:
Bm,
G7 Bm (x2), Bm
Verse 1:
[Bm] Sane, sane, they're all insane,
Fireman's blind; the conductor is lame.
A Cincinnati jacket and a sad-luck dame,
Hanging out the window with a bottle full of rain.
Chorus 1:
Clap [G7]hands, clap [Bm]hands.
Clap [G7]hands, clap [Bm]hands.
Verse 2:
Said; [Bm]roar, roar, the thunder and the roar,
Son of a bitch is never coming back here no more.
The moon in the window and a bird on the pole,
We can always find a millionaire to shovel all the coal.
Chorus 2:
Clap [G7]hands, clap [Bm]hands.
Clap [G7]hands, clap [Bm]hands.
Bridge 1:
Said; [G7]steam, steam; a [Bm]hundred bad dream,
[G7] Going up to Harlem with a [Bm]pistol in his jeans.
A [G7]fifty-dollar bill, iside a [Bm]palladin's hat,
And [G7]nobody's sure where Mr. Knickerbocker's at.
Verse 3:
[Bm] Roar, roar, the thunder and the roar,
Son of a bitch is never coming back here no more.
The moon in the window and a bird on the pole,
We can always find a millionaire to shovel all the coal.
Chorus 3:
Clap [G7]hands, clap [Bm]hands.
Clap [G7]hands, clap [Bm]hands.
Interlude:
Bm,
G7 Bm (x2), Bm
Bridge 2:
Said; [G7]steam, steam; a [Bm]hundred bad dream,
[G7] Going up to Harlem with a [Bm]pistol in his jeans.
A [G7]fifty-dollar bill, iside a [Bm]palladin's hat,
And [G7]nobody's sure where Mr. Knickerbocker's at.
Verse 4:
[Bm] Shine, shine, a Roosevelt dime,
All the way to Baltimore and running out of time.
Salvation Army seemed to wind up in the hole,
They all went to Heaven in a little row boat.
Chorus 4:
Clap [G7]hands, clap [Bm]hands.
Clap [G7]hands, clap [Bm]hands.
Clap [G7]hands, clap [Bm]hands.
Clap [G7]hands, clap [Bm]hands.
(Repeat to Fade)
