Tom Waits guitar chords    


           G                                 ( G-A-Bb notes )
Well, the stairs sound so lonely without you
B7                            C
An' I ain't made my bed in a week
                      D          G  ( G-F#-F notes )  E
Coffee stains on the paper I'm writing
         A7                      D7
And I'm too choked up inside to speak

(Spoken) And yes I know that our differences pulled us apart
We never spoke a word, heart to heart
And I'm glad that you're gone
       A7          D7                   G      D7
But I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

         G     D7              G    ( G-A-Bb notes )
And I'm gla-a-a-d that you're gone
B7                      C
  Got the feelin' so strong
              D           G    ( G-F#-F notes )   E
And I'm glad that you're gone
       A7          D7                   G     D7
But I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

Well my guitar still plays your fav-o-rite songs
Tho' the strings' a bit out of tune sometimes
Every time I strum a chord, I pray up to the Lord
That you'll quit your Honky-Tonk and sing my song


So I'll throw another log onto the fire
And I'll admit I'm a lousy liar
As the coals bed down and flicker, I hear that guitar picker
Play the song we used to sing so long ago


And I'm glad,damn glad you're gone
I got the feelin' so strong
And I'm glad that you're gone (slow )
                                                  C G Am7 G
But I wish to the Lord..... that you'd come ..... HO...ME!
