Dead and Lovely  Tom Waits

Another favourite Waits tune, hope it makes sense,
it looks a bit complicated with the walkup on the A & D
strings, and plays fine without a capo, but if you are
playing along with the song stick the capo on 3,
I pick for most of the song, but pick + strum the
Dm Bb Dm Bb Am F B7 E bits, see what works for you.
As always, any mistakes are mine, if I have missed some
obvious ones drop me a note and I'll sort it.
if you like it rate it,
thanks - flatwound -
