JOCKEY FULL OF BOURBON        TOM WAITS


Em
Edna Millon in a drop dead suit
                B7
Dutch pink on a downtown train

Two dollar pistol, but the gun won't shoot
                          Em
I'm in the corner in the pouring rain

16 men on a deadman's chest
                              B7
And I've been drinking from a broken cup

Two pairs of pants and a mohair vest
                       Em
I'm full of burbon, I can't stand up 

Am                   Em
Hey little bird, fly away home
     B7                   Em
Your house is on fire, your children are alone
Am                   Em
Hey little bird, fly away home
     B7                   Em
Your house is on fire, your children are alone

Schiffer broke a bottle on Morgans head
And I've been stepping on the devils tail
Across the stripes of a full moons head
Through the bars of a Cuban jail
Bloody fingers on a purple knife
A flamingo drinking from a cocktail glass
I'm on the lawn with someone else's wife
Come admire the view from upon the top of the mast

Chorus

Yellow sheets in a Hong Kong bed
Stayzbo horn and a Singerland slide
To the carnival is what she said 
A hundred dollars makes it dark inside
16 men on a deadman's chest
And I've been drinking from a broken cup
Two pair of pants and a mohair vest
I'm full of burbon, I can't stand up
