Kentucky Avenue  Tom Waits

|[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] - D6| - |[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] - D6|
[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] D6
Eddie Grace's Buick got four bullet holes in the side
[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] Bm7 E7
and Charlie Delisle is sittin' at the top of an avocado tree
[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] D6
Mrs. Storm will stab you with a steak knife if you step on her lawn
[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] Bm7 E7
I got a half a pack of Lucky Strikes, man, so come along with me
[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] D6
Let's fill our pockets with macadamia nuts
[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] Bm7 E7
And go over to Bobby Goodmanson's and jump off the roof
[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] D6
Well, Hilda plays strip poker when her mama's 'cross the street
[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] Bm7 E7
Joey Navinski says she put her tongue in his mouth
[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] D6 Db7
Dicky Faulkner's got a switchblade and some gooseneck risers
That [Gbm7]eucalyptus is a [B9]hunchback, there's a [Bm7]wind up from the [E7]south
So let me tie you up with kite string
and I'll [D6]show you the scabs on my knee
Watch out for the broken glass, put your shoes and socks on
[Bm7] and come along with [E7]me
Let's follow that fire truck
I think your house is burnin' down
Then go down to the hobo jungle
and kill some rattlesnakes with a trowel
And we'll break all the windows
in the old Anderson place
And we'll steal a bunch of boysenberries
and I'll smear 'em on your face
I'll get a dollar from my mama's purse
and buy that scull and crossbones ring
And you can wear it 'round your neck
on an old piece of string
Then we'll spit on Ronnie Arnold
and flip him the bird
And slash the tires on the school bus
now don't say a word
I'll take a rusty nail
and scratch your initials in my arm
And I'll show you how to sneak up on the roof
of the drugstore
I'll take the spokes from your wheelchair
and a magpie's wings
And I'll tie 'em to your shoulders
and your feet
I'll steal a hacksaw from my dad
and cut the braces off your legs
And we'll bury them tonight
out in the cornfield
Just put a church key in your pocket
we'll hop that [D6]freight train in the hall
We'll slide all the way down the drain
Bm7 E7 [cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] D6
to New Orleans in the fall
|[cb]Aadd9/C#[/cb] - D6| - |Aadd9|
