Trampled Rose  Tom Waits



Tabbed by: Moonred
Capo 3 (chords written as standard)
The main part of the song is 4/4, but the riff at the end of (almost) every line is in
timing. Every instrument kind of does their own thing on the riff, but i think this
the gist of it...
Riff (5/4 Timing)
[1] [a] [2] [a] [3] [4] [5]  

| / bend up
Intro: Am(riff)
Ahh-ahh-ahh X2
[Dm]Long way going to Get my medicine
Sky's the autumn grey of a lonely wre--n
[Dm]Piano from a window played
Gone tomorrow, gone yesterday---ay
Chorus #1
[Dm]I found it in the stre[Am]et
[Dm]At first i did not see[Am]
[Dm]Lying at my feet[Em] a trampled rose[Dm]
Ahh-ahh-ahh X2
Passing the hat in church
It never stops going rou--nd
You never pay just once
To get the job do--ne
Chorus #2
What I done to you
I done to me
What happened to the trampled rose?
Ahh-ahh-ahh X4
In the muddy street
With the fireworks and lea-ves
Blind man with a cup i asked
If he'd sing "Kisses Sweeter Than Wi-ne"
Chorus #3
I know that rose
Like i know my name
The [Dm]one i gave my [Am]love
[Dm]It was the s[Am]ame
Now i f[Dm]ound it in the st[Em]reet a trample[Dm]d rose
