Poor Edward  Tom Waits

Poor Edward by Tom Waits
Transcribed by Johan Jeppsson
Standard tuning
Capo on 1st fret
Tom sings this ridicously low. If you want to transpose it, you could use this table:
Em -> Am
B7 -> E7
Am -> Dm
E -> A
Did you [Em]hear the news about [B7]Edward?
On the [Em]back of his [Am]head
[B7]he had [Em]another face
[E]Was it a [Am]woman's face
or a young [B7]girl?
They said to [Em]remove it would [Am]kill him
So poor Edward was [B7]doomed
That face could [Em]laugh and[Am] cry
[B7]It was his [Em]devil twin
[E]At night she [Am]spoke to him
Things heard only in [B7]hell
They were [Em]impossible to [Am]separate
Chained together for [B7]life
Finally the [Em]bell tolled his [Am]doom
[B7]He took a [Em]suite of rooms
[E]And hung [Am]himself and her
from the balcony [B7]irons
Some still [Em]believe he was [Am]freed from her
But I knew her too [B7]well
I say she [Em]drove him to [Am]suicide
And took poor Edward to [B7]hell
(It's nice to disolve the dominant (B7) with the tonic (Em) here at the end)
