Tom Traubert's Blues. (Tom Waits)
Rod Stewart.
Single: 1992.
Album: Once In A Blue Moon.

Intro: B C#m6 B/D# E B/D# C# F#7 F#
E                      B/D#
Wasted and wounded, it ain't what the moon did, 
     C#m7       F#7      B   C#m Ebm
I've got what I paid for now,
E                     Ebm
See you tomorrow, hey Frank, 
               C#        C#7        F#  F#7
Can I borrow a couple of bucks from you,
      B        Cm6      B/D#       E
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda,
B/D#               C#m7         F#
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me.

       E                    B/D#
I'm an innocent victim of a blinded alley,
Ebm7    C#m7               F#       B    C#m6 B/D#
And I'm tired of all these soldiers here,
E                          Ebm   B/D#
No one speaks English, and every things broken, 
       C#7                  F#7 B/D#
And my strength are soaking wet,
   F# B        C#m6     B/D#       E
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda,
B/D#                 C#m7       F#
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me.

        E                        B/D#
Now the dogs are barking and the taxi cab's parking,
  C#m         F#6     B  C#m7 B/D#
A lot they can do for me,
E                            Ebm
I begged you to stab me, you tore my shirt open,
        C#m        C#m7    F#7  B/F# F#
And I'm down on my knees tonight,
    E                            B/D#
Old Bushmills I staggered, you'd bury the dagger,
        C#                F#    B/F# F#
In your silhouette window light, to go,
      B        C#m6     B/D#     E
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda,
B/D#               C#m7         F#
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me.

      E                          B/D#
Now I lost my Saint Christopher, now that I've kissed her,
        C#m7      F#7    B    C#m7 B/D#
And the one-armed bandit knows,
        E                          B/D#
And the maverick Chinaman, and the cold-blooded signs,
        C#                F#7
And the girls down by the strip-tease shows, go,
B        C#m6     B/D#       E
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda,
B/D#               C#m7         F#
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me.

      E                         B/D#  
No, I don't want your sympathy, fugitives say,
         C#m7               F#       B  C#m7 B/D#
That the streets aren't for dreaming now,
E                             B/D#
Manslaughter dragnets and the ghosts that sell memories,
       C#7                 F#7
Want a piece of the action anyhow,
  B           F#7    B/D#       E
Go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda,
B/D#                 C#m7       F#
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me.

            E                       B/D#
And you can ask any sailor, and the keys from the jailer,
        C#m7       F#7         B    C#m6 B/D#
And the old men in wheelchairs know,
      E                          B/D#
And Matilda's the defendant, she killed about a hundred,
        C#m              F#
And she follows wherever you may go,
B          C#m6   B/D#       E
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda,
B/D#                 C#m7       F#
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me.

           E                           B/D#
And it's a battered old suitcase, in a hotel someplace,
      C#m7            F#7   B   F#7 B/D#
And a wound that will never heal,
E                     B/D#
No Prima donna's, the perfume is on,
       C#m           F#6          B         F#7    B/D#
An old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey,
    E
And goodnight to the street sweepers, 
          B/D#
The night watchmen, flame keepers.
    C#m7        F#6 F#7   B   B/D# E B/D# C#m7
And goodnight to Matilda, too,
C#m7      F#6 F#  B
Goodnight Matilda too.
