Tom Waits guitar chords    


C  G7  C
G7        C                                F
It’s the same with men as with horses and dogs
C/G      G7       C  G7
Nothing wants to die
C                                 F
Ethel and James they killed in a game
       C           G7
With guns too big for their hands
      C                  F
Just off St. Charles in no man’s land
            C                 G7      C     F/A
And you’ll have to find your own way home, boys
        C                 G7      c    G7
You’ll have to find your own way home

The oldest was Troy, an eighteen year old boy
Shot dead in March in a robbery
His brothers started out to hell and to ruin
Troy’s killer was never caught, they say
Young Nick, he just went bad that day
Now he’ll have to find his own way home, boys
He’ll have to find his own way home

G7                C
Why cook dinner, why make my bed
G7                C
Why come home at all?
F                   C          Am
Out the door and through the woods
C                       Am      Em  G7
There’s a world where nothing grows

It’s hard to say grace and to sit in the place
Of someone missing at the table
Mom’s hair sprayed tight and her face in her hands
Watching TV for answers to me
After all she’s only human
And she’s trying to find her own way home, boys
She’s trying to find her own way home

C        G7       C        F
My legs ache, my heart is sore
C            G7       Am
The well is full of pennies
