Tom Waits - Ponchos Lament chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Noticed that no-one had posted this great old Waits tune, so here ya'll go

With some basic fill in bass string runs from the G chord up to the B7
and again from the G down to the E chord this sounds pretty passable

If you like it rate it,  * flatwound *

                             PONCHO'S LAMENT
                               Tom Waits


         G               D        G
   The stairs sound so lonely without you
B7                           C             C            D           G    E
   I ain't made my bed in a week, Coffee stains on the paper I'm writing
            A7                      D
   And I'm too choked up inside to speak
                G    D                      G         
   Well yes  I know    that our differences   pulled us apart
 B7                              C           C    D           G   E
   Never spoke a word heart to heart,   I'm glad that you're gone
          A7          D               G    D
   But I wish to the Lord you'd come home 


         G    D              G   B7                     C
Yes I'm gla--ad that you're gone,  Got the feeling so strong
      C   D           G   E        A7          D                    G   D
I'm glad that you're gone,  But I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

 
             G            D           G
   Well my guitar still plays your favorite song
B7                                                   C
   Though the strings have been outta tune for some time
          C              D         G               E
   Every time I play a chord,   I pray out to the Lord
                A7               D                G    D
   That you'll quit your honkey-tonk and sing my song


         G    D              G   B7                     C
Yes I'm gla--ad that you're gone,  Got the feeling so strong
      C   D           G   E        A7          D                    G   D
I'm glad that you're gone,  But I wish to the Lord that you'd come home


 G                        D            G
   So I'll Throw another log onto the fire, 
 B7                                 C
   And, I'll admit I'm a lousy liar
           C                   D         G                 E
   As the coals die down and flicker, I hear that guitar picker
             A7              D            G    D
   Play the song we used to sing so long ago 


         G    D                   G   B7                     C
Yes I'm gla--ad glad that you're gone,  Got the feeling so strong
      C   D           G   E         A7          D               G
I'm glad that you're gone,  But I wish to the Lord you'd come home
