DAY AFTER TOMORROW         TOM WAITS

D/A  D/B  D  Dadd9  A6  A  D

D          Dmaj7  D/A
I got your letter today
      Dmaj7           A7/C#
and I miss you all so much here
        Bm              D
I can't wait to see you all
        D/A          A6   A7
and I'm counting the days here 

          G6                 Dmaj7
I still believe that there's gold 
       D/F#       G/B  G
at the end of the world 
              D/F# G      D/F#
And I'll come home to Illinois
G      D/F#      A6-A  D
on the day after tomorrow

D        Dmaj7        D/A 
It is so hard and it's cold here
        Dmaj7           A7/C# 
and I'm tired of taking orders
      Bm                D 
And I miss old Rockford town
   D/A              A6 A7 
up by the Wisconsin border 

       G6                Dmaj7
What I miss, you won't believe 
          D/F#            G/B   G         
shoveling snow and raking leaves 
       D/F#  G          D/F#
And my plane will touch down
G      D/F#      A6-A  D 
on the day after tomorrow 

D          Dmaj7      D/A
I close my eyes every nite
      Dmaj7            A7/C# 
and I dream that I can hold you
                     Bm    D  D/B    D 
They fill us full of lies, everyone buys
              D/A           A6  A7 
'bout what it means to be a soldier 

                   G6                  Dmaj7
I still don't know how I'm supposed to feel
              D/F#              G/B    G
'bout all the blood that's been spilled 
                 D/F#       G       D/F#
Will god on this throne get me back home
G      D/F#      A6-A  D
on the day after tomorrow

D         Dmaj7           D/A
You can't deny, the other side 
              Dmaj7            A7/C#
Don't want to die anymore then we do
                   Bm     D    D/B     D
What I'm trying to say is don't they pray
       D/A           A6 A7
to the same god that we do?
 
            G6           Dmaj7
And tell me how does god choose 
      D/F#            G/B     G
whose prayers does he refuse? 
              D/F#      G          D/F#
Who turns the wheel Who throws the dice
G      D/F#      A6-A  D
on the day after tomorrow

D/F# G/B G D D/F# G/B G D Dadd9 A7

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....

D       Dmaj7         D/A
I'm not fighting, for justice
         Dmaj7         A7/C# 
I am not fighting, for freedom
     Bm               D 
I am fighting, for my life
            D/A        A6    A7 
and another day in the world here 

       G6                Dmaj7
I just do what I've been told
               D/F#          G/B   G 
We're just the gravel on the road 
             D/F#       G    D/F#
And only the lucky ones come home
G      D/F#      A6-A  D
on the day after tomorrow

D       Dmaj7               D/A
And the summer, it too will fade 
            Dmaj7               A7/C#
and with it brings the winter's frost dear 
      Bm              D
And I know we too are made 
           D/A                 A6   A7
of all the things that we have lost here 
        G6   Dmaj7
I'll be 21 today
       D/F#          G/B  G 
I been saving all my pay 
       D/F#  G          D/F#
And my plane will touch down 
G      D/F#      A6-A  D
on the day after tomorrow
       D/F#  G          D/F#
And my plane will touch down 
G      D/F#      A6-A  D
on the day after tomorrow
