FANNIN STREET                    TOM WAITS

C     = 332010
Csus4 = x33010


          F       G                 C    Csus4   C
There's a crooked street in Houston town
       F         G                  C    Csus4   C
It's a well born path I've traveled down
            F          G              C     C/B          Am
Now there's ruin in my name, I wish I never got off the train
  F                   G                C
I wished I'd listened to the words you said


         C Csus4 C                 Csus4 C
Don't go down      to Fannin Street
         F              C     Csus4 C
Don't go down to Fannin Street
         F              C C/B Am
Don't go down to Fannin Street, oh yeah
          C              F
You'll be lost and never found
        C          F
You can never turn around
         C    G
Don't go down
G         C   Csus4 C
to Fannin Street

       F              G           C    Csus4 C
Once I held you in my arms, I was sure
      F                G                         C   Csus4 C
And I took that silent step through the gilded door
      F                 G             C       C/B     Am   
The desire to have much more, all the glitter and the roar
      F         G                  C   Csus4 C
Now I know just where the sidewalk ends


           F               G               C
When I was young I thought only of getting out
           F            G                  C
I said goodbye to my street, goodbye to my house
           F               G              C    C/B        Am
Give a man gin, give a man cards, give an inch he takes a yard
      F               G                   C   Csus4 C
And I rue the day that I stepped off this train

Chorus (x2)

         C    G         C  Csus4 C
Don't go down to Fannin Street       (x2)
