TIME       TOM WAITS


 A7 
           D                              D 
Well the smart money's on Harlow and the moon is in the street
          G              A7               D 
And the shadow boys are breaking all the laws
            G                  A7            D    
And you're east of East Saint Louis and the wind is making speeches
         G                             A7sus4 - A7 
And the rain sounds like a round of applause
       D                      D 
And Napoleon is weeping in a carnival saloon
       G       A7              D        
His invisible fiancee's in the mirror
         G             A7                 D 
And the band is going home, it's raining hammers, it's raining nails
           G                            A7sus4 - A7 
And it's true there's nothing left for him down here


Chorus:

             D    A7    D              G    Bm/E   A7sus4 - A7 
   And it's time time  time, and it's time  time   time
             D    F#m    G             Em 
   And it's time  time  time that you love
(Repeat)

And they all pretend they're orphans and their memory's like a train
You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
And the things you can't remember tell the things you can't forget 
That history puts a saint in every dream

Well she said she'd stick around until the bandages came off
But these mama's boys just don't know when to quit
And Mathilda asks the sailors "Are those dreams or are those prayers?" 
So close your eyes, son, and this won't hurt a bit

   Oh it's time time time, and it's time time time
   And it's time time time that you love
   And it's time time time

 D   D 

Well things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
The boys just dive right off the cars and splash into the street
And when they're on a roll she pulls a razor from her boot
And a thousand pigeons fall around her feet
So put a candle in the window and a kiss upon his lips 
As the dish outside the window fills with rain
Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
And pay the fiddler off 'til I come back again

   Oh it's time time time, and it's time time time
   And it's time time time that you love
   And it's time time time
   And it's time time time, and it's time time time
   And it's time time time that you love
   And it's time time time
