RUBY'S ARMS		TOM WAITS

F       C      E7    Am
F       C      Dm7   G7

       F       C        E7     Am
I will leave behind all of my clothes
  F         C      Dm7   G7
I wore when I was with you
F     C         E7       Am     
All I need's my railroad boots 
F      C       Dm7    G7
And my leather jacket
     F       C      E7     Am
As I say goodbye to Ruby's arms
  F         C        Dm7     G7
Although my heart is breaking
       F     C        E7           Am
I will steal away out through your blinds
    F        C       Dm7     G7
For soon you will be waking


    G       C         A           Dm
The morning light has washed your face 
    G7      C              Dm7 ... G7sus4    G7
And everything is turning blue ... now
G       C       A      Dm
Hold on to your pillow case
        G7      C     Dm7   G7sus4    G7
There's nothing I can do ... now

     F       C      E7     Am
As I say goodbye to Ruby's Arms
       F     C      Dm7      G7
You'll find another soldier
      F        C      E7       Am
And I swear to God by Christmastime
            F       C       Dm7       G7
There'll be someone else to hold you

    G    C         A      Dm
The only thing I'm taking is 
    G7        C       Dm7         G7sus4  G7
The scarf off of your clothes ... line
     G     C         A        Dm
I'll hurry past your chest-of-drawers
 G7      C      Dm7      G7sus4   G7
And your broken wind ... chimes


     F   C             E7  Am
As I say goodbye, I'll say goodbye
    Dm7            G7sus4  F     C  E7  Am  F  C  Dm7  G7
Say goodbye     to Ruby's Arms



       F       C            E7       Am
I will feel my way down the darkened hall
F     C      Dm7      G7
Out into the morning
    F      C      E7      Am
The Hoboes at the freight yards
     F          C     Dm7      G7
Have kept their fires burning
F     C           E7       Am
Jesus Christ this God damn rain
     F       C      E7   Am
Will someone put me on a train
     F     C         E7   Am
I'll never kiss your lips again
   Dm7        G7sus4   G7
Or break ... your heart
     F       C           E7  Am
As I say goodbye ... I'll say goodbye
    Dm7           G7sus4 F     C   E7  Am  F  C  Dm7  G7  C
Say goodbye ...to Ruby's Arms
