Suitcase Blues  Triumph

Written by Rik Emmett, tabbed by Doug Jacobson with a little help from Ed Levy
[F]It's four in the morn[Dm7]ing,
There's not[Edim7] a soul around[A7+5+9] [b9]
T[Dm7]his dirty hot[D9]el room
Has re[G7(13)]ally got me down[C7#9] [F13]
[Bbma7]A modern day minstrel,
They got[Bbm7] my name in light[Eb9]s
I w[Am7]ish these days of glamour
Didn't hav[D9]e these lonely nights[D7b9]
I'm o[Gm7]n the road to fortune
And I got [Bbm7]the suitcase blues [Eb9]real bad[F] [Dm7] [Gm7] [C7b9]
[Fmaj7]I guess I'm makin' paym[Dm7]ents
[Em7b5]For the dues that must be paid[A7+5+9] [b9]
I c[Dm7]ash another son[D9]g
Into this en[G7]dless masquerade[C7#9] [F13]
[Bbma7]halfway through the circuit
And hea[Bbm7]ded for the coast[Eb9]
Been gon[Am7]e so long I can't remember
[D9]What I miss the most,[D7b9] ah, but,
[Gm7]Me and Johnny Walker,
Bbm7 Eb7 orEb9
And the comfort that he brings,
[Am7]Waitin' on the telephone
That nev[D9]er, ever rings[D7b9]
[Gm7]On the lonely road to fortune,
and I got[Bbm7] the suitcase blues[Eb9] real bad
Dm7 G9 or G7 or G13 REPEAT
[Dm7]I got the[G13] blues
And I got [Dm7]them really bad[G13]
[Dm7]The suitcase bl[G13]ues
Are the wors[Dm7]t I ever had[G13]
[Em7]all by my l[A13]onesome
And I'm half[Em7]way 'round the bend[A13]
[(Eb9)]I [Am7] don't mind [D7]drinkin' solo
But I sur[Gm7]e could use a frie[D7b9#5]nd
[Gm7(9)]Me and Johnny Walker,
And the comf[Bbm7]ort that he brings,[Eb9]
[Am7]Waitin' on the telephone
That nev[D9]er, ever rings[D7b9]
On the lon[Gm7]ely road to fortune,
and I got[Bbm7] the suitcase blues[Eb9] real?[A7#5] bad[F] [E] [Eb] [D] [Fmaj7]
I think this is pretty close ? some jazz head please figure out the tag at the end!
