Singer/Band: Tom Waits


*CAPO 1st FRET*
(Original Key: Eb)
(Intro)
[D] [G] [A]
(x2)
(Verse 1)
[D]...Outside, a-[G]nother [A]yellow [D]moon,
Has punched a [G]hole in the [A]night-time, yes.
[D]...I [G]climb through the [A]window and [D]down to the street,
I'm [G]shining like a [A]new dime.
(Bridge 1)
[G]...The downtown [A]trains are full,
[G]...With all of those [A]Brooklyn girls.
[G]...They try so hard to [A]break out of their little worlds.
(Verse 2)
[D]...Well, you wave your [G]hand and they [A]scatter like crows,[D]
They have [G]nothing that will ever [A]capture your heart.[D]
[G]...They're just [A]thorns, without the rose;[D]
Be [G]careful of [A]them in the dark.
(Bridge 2)
[G]...Oh, if I [A]was the one, [G]you chose to be your only [A]one.
Oh baby, [G]can't you hear me now? [A]Can't you hear me now?
(Chorus 1)
[D]...Will I see you [G]to-night,[A]
[D]...On a downtown [G]train?[A]
[D]...Every [G]night it's just the same;[Em] [A] you leave me lonely, now.
(Verse 3)
[D]...I know your [G]window and I [A]know it's [D]late,
I know your [G]stairs and your [A]doorway.
[D]...I walk down your [G]street and [A]past your [D]gate,
I stand by the [G]light at the [A]four-way.
(Bridge 3)
[G]...You watch them as they [A]fall,
Oh [G]baby, they all have heart-[A]attacks.
They [G]stay at the carnival but they'll [A]never win you back.
(Chorus 2)
[D]...Will I see you [G]to-night,[A]
[D]...On a downtown [G]train?[A]
Where [D]every night, [G]every night, it's just the same,[Em] [A] oh baby...
[D]...Will I see you to-[G]night,[A]
[D] On a downtown [G]train?[A]
[D]...All of my [G]dreams, they fall
like [Em]rain, oh [A]baby, on a downtown train.
(Interlude)
[D] [G] [D] [A] [D] [G] [A]
(x2)
(Chorus 3)
[D]...Will I see you [G]to-night,[A]
[D]...On a downtown [G]train?[A]
Where [D]every night, [G]every night, it's just the same,[Em] [A] oh baby...
[D]...Will I see you to-[G]night,[A]
[D] On a downtown [G]train?[A]
[D]...All of my [G]dreams, they fall like
[Em]rain, oh [A]baby, on a downtown train.
(Coda)
[D]... [G]All on a [A]downtown [D]train, [G]all on a [A]downtown [D]train.
[G]...All on a [A]downtown [D]train, [G]a [A]downtown [D]train.
