Tom Waits - A Good Man Is Hard To Find tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I love this song. It's fairly simple. The most obvious way to play it is by putting a 
on the 1st fret and playing D, A, A7, D, D, D7, Em, E, E7, etc. But I lost my capo.. so 
the barre version.

It also has a wonderful dooo-dooo-dooo doodoodoo thing going on between verses and in 
beginning.. as in:

E|------6-----6-----6--------|
B|------8-----8-----8--------|
G|------8-----8-----8--------|
D|---------------------------|
A|---6-----5---------------5-|
E|---------------8-----6-8---|

Verse 1
  D#                  Bb
I always play Russian Roulette in my head
Bb7                 D#
Seventeen black and twenty-nine red
    D#           D#7
How far from the gutter
                 Fm
How far from the pew
     F        F7           Bb        Bb7
I'll always remember to forget about you

Chorus
D#                      C
A good man is hard to find
     Fm                    Bb
Only strangers sleep in my bed
   D#                      C7
My favorite words are good-bye
       Fm       Bb       D#
And my favorite color is red

Verse 2
A long dead soldier looks out
From the frame
No one remembers his war; no one
Remembers his name

Verse 3
Go out to the meadow;
Scare off all the crows
It does nothing but rain here,
And nothing will grow

Chorus
A good man is hard to find
Only strangers sleep in my bed
My favorite words are good-bye
And my favorite color is
Fm                Bb
my favorite color is
Fm          Bb       D#
my favorite color is red
