New Year's Eve  Tom Waits

C's should be emphasized with sus2's and sus4's.
F's could be played as Fmaj7 most of the time
and G's should always be emphasized with a G7
C ? G ? C - G
[C]The door was open I was seething[G]
[C]Your mother burst in it was freezing[F]
[C]She said it looks like it?s trying to rai[G]n[C]
[C]I was lost I felt sea sick[G]
[C]You convinced me that he?d left[F]
[C]You said keep talking but don?t use any names[G] [C]
[F]I scolded your driver and your brother
We are old enough to know how long you?ve been hooked[C]
[F]And we?ve all been through the war
And each time you score
Someone gets hauled and handcuffed and booked[C] [G]
[C]It felt like four in the morning[G]
[C]What sounded like fire works[F]
[C]Turned out to be just what it wa[G]s[C]
[C]The stars looked like diamonds[G]
[C]Then came the sirens[F]
[C]And everyone started to c[G]uss[C]
[F]All the noise was disturbing
And I couldn?t find Irving
It was like two stations on at the same time[C]
[F]And then I hid your car keys
And I made black coffee
And I dumped out the rest of the rum[C] [G]
[C]Nick and Socorro broke up[G]
[C]And Candice wouldn?t shut up[F]
[C]Fin he recorded the[G] whole thing[C]
[C]Ray he said damn you[G]
[C]And someone broke my camera[F]
[C]And it was New Years
[G]And we all started to sing[C]
[F]Should auld acquaintance be[C] forgot and never b[G]rought to mind[C] [F]
[F]Should auld acquaintance be [C]forgot for the sake[G] of auld lan[Am]g syne[F] [C]
[F]I was leaving in the morning with Charles for Las Vegas
And I didn?t plan to come back[C]
[F]I had only a few things
Two hundred dollars
And my records in a brown paper sack[C] [G]
[C]I ran out on Sheila[G]
[C]Everything?s in storage[F]
[C]Calvin?s right I should go back to d[G]riving truck[C]
[F]Should auld acquaintance be[C] forgot and never b[G]rought to mind[C] [F]
[F]Should auld acquaintance be [C]forgot for the sake[G] of auld lan[Am]g syne [F] [C]
