A Sweet Little Bullet From a Pretty Blue Gun  Tom Waits

Well it'[Am]s raining it's pouring, you didn't bring a sweater
Ne[Am]braska'll never [D7/F#]let you come back hom[E]e [F#7] [Gm] [G#m]
[Am]Hollywood and Vine by the Thrifty Mart sign
any night I'll be [D7/F#]willin' to bet [E] [F#7] [Gm] [G#m]
There's a [Am]young girl with sweet little dreams and pretty blue wishes
standin' there[D/F#] just [E]gettin' all [Am]wet
And there's a [Am]place off the drag called the Gilbert Hotel
and there's a couple letters [D7/F#]burned out in the sig[E]n [F#7] [Gm] [G#m]
And it's [Am]better than a bus stop they do good business every time it rains
for little girls with nothing in their jeans
[D7/F#] but prett[E]y blue wish[Am]es and sweet little jeans
And it's [Am]raining it's pouring, the old man is snoring
Now I lay me down to sleep
I hear the sirens in the street
All my dreams are made of chrome
I [D7/F#]have no way to [E]get b[F#7]ack h[Gm]ome [G#m]
I'd [Am]rather die before I wake
like Marilyn Monroe[D7/F#]
and you could [Am]throw my dreams out in the street
and let the [D7/F#]rain [E]make 'em grow[Am]
(Solo)
Now the [Am]night clerk he got a club foot
He's heard every hard luck story
at least a [D7/F#]hundred times or m[E]ore[F#7] [Gm] [G#m]
He says: [Am]Check out time is 10 a.m.
and that's just what it means
Go on up the stairs
with sweet little [D7/F#]wishes and [E]pretty blue [Am]dreams
And it's [Am]raining it's pouring and Hollywood's just [D7/F#]fine
[Am]Swindle a little girl out of her dreams
another [E]letter [F#7]in the [Gm]sign [G#m]
[Am]  
Now never trust a scarecrow wearin' shades after dark
be careful of that old bow[D7/F#] tie he wears
It takes a sweet little bullet from a pretty blue gun
to put those [D7/F#]scarlet ribbons [E]in your ha[Am]ir
(Solo)
No, that [Am]ain't no cherry bomb
4th of July's all [D/F#]done
Just some fool playin' that second line
from the [D7/F#]barrel of a [E]pretty blue [Am]gun
No, that [Am]ain't no cherry bomb
4th of July's all [D/F#]done
Just some fool playin' that second line
from the [D7/F#]barrel of a [E]pretty blue [Am]gun
