Tom Waits guitar chords    

CAPO 2nd Fret
C                   F
They hung a sign up in our town
	 G                             C
"If you live it up, you won't live it down"
     C              F
So, she left Monte Rio, son,
      G                 C
Just like a bullet leaves a gun
       F                 G
With charcoal eyes and Monroe hips
	      C             F
She went and took that California trip
	 Dm                 G
Well the moon was gold, her hair like wind
	 Dm                   G
She said don't look back just come on, Jim

	       C         G      C           F
Oh, you got to Hold on, hold on, baby gotta hold on
C                   G                             C
Take my hand, I'm standin' right here, you gotta hold on

Well, he gave her a dimestore watch
And a ring made from a spoon
Everyone is looking for someone to blame
But you share my bed, you share my name
Well go ahead and call the cops,
You don't meet nice girls in coffee shops
She said "Baby, I still love you,
Sometimes there's nothin' left to do"


Well, God bless your crooked little heart
St. Louis got the best of me
I miss your broken-china voice
How I wish you were still here with me
Well you build it up, you wreck it down
You burn your mansion to the ground
When there's nothing left to keep you here,
When you're falling behind in this big blue world


Down by the Riverside Motel
It's 10 below and falling
By a 99 cent store
She closed her eyes and started swaying
But it's so hard to dance that way
When it's cold and there's no music
Well your old hometown is so far away
But inside your head there's a record that's playing
(a song called)
