New Coat of Paint  Tom Waits

This song is played on the piano but I thought I would do an acoustic version
cause its a great song. Any corrections would be welcome thanks :D
C#m (X 4 6 6 5 4)
[F#] [(2] [4] [4] [3] [2] [2)]  
[A] [(5] [7] [7] [6] [5] [5)]  
[G#] [(4] [6] [6] [5] [4] [4)]  
I find that it sounds best if you finger pic it.
Intro: C#m, F#, A, G#
C#m, F#, A,G#,C#m
Let's put a [C#m]new coat of [F#]paint on this [A]lonesome old [G#]town
[C#m]Set 'em up, [F#]we'll be [A]knockin' em [G#]down.
[C#m]You wear a [F#]dress, baby,[A] and I'll wear a[G#] tie.
We'll laugh at[C#m] that old bloodshot [F#]moon in that [A]burg[G#]undy[C#m] sky
Bridge: C#m, F#, A, G# x3
C#m, F#, A,G#,C#m
It repeats like this for the rest of the song
All your scribbled lovedreams, are lost or thrown away,
Here amidst the shuffle of an overflowing day
Our love needs a transfusion so let's shoot it full of wine
Fishin' for a good time starts with throwin'in your line.
Bridge: C#m, F#, A, G# x3
C#m, F#, A,G#,C#m
Let's put a new coat of paint on this lonesome old town
Set 'em up, we'll be knockin' em down.
You wear a dress, baby, and I'll wear a tie.
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon in that burgundy sky
Bridge: C#m, F#, A, G# x3
C#m, F#, A,G#,C#m
Outro: C#m, F#, A, G#
C#m, F#, A,G#,C#m
