HOIST THAT RAG                  TOM WAITS

Am Dm / E Am /
Am Dm / E Am / 

         Am         Dm
Well I learned the trade
      E     Am
From Piggy Knowles
 Am        Dm    E
Sing Sing Tommy Shay Boys
     Am     Dm    E     Am
God used me as a hammer boys
   Am        Dm     E
To beat his weary drum today
            Am  Dm / E Am /
Hoist that rag [2x]

Am Dm / E Am /
Am Dm / E Am / 

The sun is up the world is flat
Damn good address for a rat
The smell of blood
The Drone of flies
You know what to do if
The baby cries

Hoist that rag [2x]

Am Dm / E Am /
Am Dm / E Am /  

Well we stick our fingers in the ground, 
heave and turn the world around
Smoke is blacking out the sun
At night I pray and clean my gun
The cracked bell rings as the ghost bird sings 
and the gods go beggin here
So just open fire when you hit the shore
All is fair in love and war

Hoist that rag [4x]
