Tom Waits guitar chords    


       Bm    G       Bm   G
Uncle Vernon, Uncle Vernon
     Bm           G      F#
Independent as a hog on ice
        Bm       G                   Bm         G
He's a big-shot down there at the slaughterhouse
         Bm          G  F#   Bm
Plays accordion for Mister Weiss

       Em     C            Em   C
Uncle Biltmore and Uncle William
        Em             C        B
Made a million during World War II
             Em     C               Em       C
But they're tightwads and they're cheapskates
             Em           C    B  Em
And they'll never give a dime to you

Auntie Mame has gone insane
She lives in the doorway of an old hotel
And the radio is playing opera
All she ever says is go to Hell

Uncle Violet flew as pilot
And there ain't no pretty girls in France
Now he runs a tiny little bookie joint
They say he never keeps it in his pants

Uncle Bill will never leave a will
And the tumour is as big as an egg
Has a mistress, she's Puerto Rican
And I heard she has a wooden leg

Uncle Phil can't live without his pills
He has emphysema and he's almost blind
And we must find out where the money is
Get it now before he loses his mind

Uncle Vernon, Uncle Vernon
Independent as a hog on ice
He's a big-shot down there at the slaughterhouse
He plays accordion for Mr. Weiss
