WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND               TOM WAITS
 
Capo 1st Fret

D          A        D         G
I grew up here now all of my life
       D           A      D  G-D
But I dreamed someday I'd go
           D         A         D      G  
Where the blue-eyed girls and red guitars and
     D     A       D  G-D
The naked rivers flow


G 
I'm not all I thought I'd be
    Bm            D
I always stayed around
      G        
I've been as far as Mercy and Grand
  Bm            A
Frozen to the ground


D         A           D              G
I can't stay here and I'm scared to leave
      D       A         D     A
Just kiss me once and then
     D      A       D        G
I'll go to hell, I might as well
     D        A        D    G-D
Be whistlin' down the wind

 
     G             D
The bus is at the corner
      G           D
The clock on the wall
  G              Bm
Broken down windmill
                   A
There's no wind at all
  G                D
I've yelled and I cursed
       G             D
If I stay here I'll rust
      G             Bm
I'm stuck like a shipwreck
                 A
Out here in the dust


     D      A           D          G
The sky is red and the world's on fire
         D       A          D    A
And the corn is taller than me
     D      A        D         G
The dog is tied to a wagon of rain
         D          A          D   G-D
And the road is as wet as the sea


     G
And sometimes the music from a dance
      Bm                D
Will carry across the plains
          G 
And the places that I'm dreaming of
         Bm            A
Do they dream only of me?


            D      A         D      G
There are places where they never sleep
         D      A    D     G
And the circus never ends
   D       A        D          G
So I will take the Marleybone coach
       D          A        D     G-D
And be whistling down the wind
   D       A        D          G
so I will take the Marleybone coach
D          A        D    G   D
Whistling down the wind
