Tom Waits - Lucinda tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
this is my first ever submission so please don't be too harsh,
also am not exactly sure that the Bmaj chord is quite right,
but if u holler n growl enough like Mr. Waits when you are playing
it sounds passable 

          Am                    Am
Well they call me William The Pleaser
        Am                    E
I sold opium, fireworks and lead
           Am                    Dm
Now I'm telling my troubles to strangers
           Am         E            Am
When the shadows get long I'll be dead
 
         Am                               Am
Now her hair was as black as a bucket of tar
             Am                    E
Skin was as white as a cuttlefish bone
         Am              Dm                        Dm
I left Texas to follow Lucinda            
          Am         E        Am          e |-X-|---|---|---|
Now I'll never see heaven or home         B |---|---|-X-|---|
                                          G |---|-X-|---|---|
          Am                   Am         D |---|---|---|---|
I made a wish on silver of moonlight     XA |---|---|---|---|
       Am                      E         XE |---|---|---|---|
A sly grin and a bowl full of stars
        Am                  Dm
Like a kid who captures a firefly
               Am      E          Am
And leaves it only to die in the jar

      Am                        Am        
As I kick at the clouds at my hanging
      Am                  E
As I swing out over the crowd
        Am                      Dm
I will search every face for Lucinda's
             Am          E           Am
And she will go off with me down to hell

    Am                         Am
I thought I'd broke loose of Lucinda
    Am                            E
The rain returned and so did the wind
              Am                         Dm
I cast this burden on the God that's within me
         Am             E           Am 
I will leave this old world and go free                Bmaj

            D                   Am           e |---|-x-|---|---|---|
The devil dances inside empty pockets        B |---|-x-|---|-X-|---|
           D                  Am             G |---|-x-|---|-X-|---|
But she did'nt want money or pearls          D |---|-x-|---|-X-|---|
           D                  Am             A |---|-X-|---|---|---|
No, that wasn't enough for Lucinda          XE |---|---|---|---|---|
     Bmaj                E
She wasn't that kind of girl

           Am                    Am
Now I've fallen from grace for Lucinda
          Am                           E
Whoever thought that hell would be so cold
       Am                       Dm
I did well for an old tin can sailor
          Am        E          Am
But she wanted the bell in my soul

        Am                  Am
I've spoken to God on the mountain
          Am                E
And I've swam in the Irish sea
       Am                       Dm
I ate fire and drank from the Ganges
         Am              E       Am
And I'll beg there for mercy for me

    Am                          Am
I thought I'd broke loose of Lucinda
          Am                      E
The rain returned and so did the wind
         Am                 Dm   
I was standing outside the Whitehorse
       Am       E         Am
Oh but I was afraid to go in

             Am             Am
I heard someone pull the trigger
              Am                      E
Her breasts heaved in the moonlight again
             Am                    Dm
There was a smear of gold in the window
         Am          E           Am
And then I was the jewel of her sin

      Am                   Am
They call me William The Pleaser
        Am                    E
I sold opium, fireworks and lead
          Am                      Dm
Now I'm telling my troubles to strangers
           Am          E           Am
When the shadows get long I'll be dead

         Am                              Am
Now her hair was as black as a bucket of tar
             Am                    E
Skin was as white as a cuttlefish bone
        Am               Dm
I left Texas to follow Lucinda
           Am        E        Am
Now I'll never see heaven or home
          Am         E       Am
No I'll never see heaven or home
          Am         E       Am
No I'll never see heaven or home
