THE HOUSE WHERE NOBODY LIVES		TOM WAITS
Capo 3rd
          C                        G
There's a house on my block that's abandoned and cold
 C                       F
Folks moved out of it a long time ago
          C                               G
And they took all their things, and they never came back
  C                                F    
Looks like its haunted, with the windows all cracked
     C                    G
And everyone calls it the house
                        F         C
The house where nobody lives

Chorus
  F   
Once it held laughter, once it held dreams
          C
Did they throw it away, do they know what it means
  F
Did someone's heart break, 
   D7                       G     G7
Or did someone do somebody wrong


Well the paint was all cracked, it was peeled off the wood
Papers were stacked on the porch where I stood
And the weeds had grown up just as high as the door
There were birds in the chimney and an old chest of drawers
Looks like no-one will ever come back to
The house where nobody lives

Chorus

So if you find someone, someone to have, someone to hold
Don't trade it for silver, don't trade it for gold
Cos I have all of life's treasures, and they're fine and they're good
They remind me that houses are just made of wood
What makes a house grand oh it aint the roof or the doors
If there's love in a house, it's a palace for sure
Without love it aint nothin' but a house
A house where nobody lives
Without love it aint nothin' but a house
A house where nobody lives
