Tom Waits Black Market Baby chords
Highlighted Show chord diagrams
Intro: G# minor The bassline moves chromatically from G# to F#, and then back again. So if you do like this you can get it: E|-4-4-4--4-4-4-| B|-4-4-4--4-4-4-| G|-4-4-4--4-4-4-| D|-6-5-4--4-5-6-| (listen to the track for the rhythm) A|-6-6-6--6-6-6-| E|-4-4-4--4-4-4-| But personally I don't bother since you need to strum it funny and it's hard to get (but if you're playing this with a bassist, you're in the money). G#m She lives in a house D#7 That's way back off the road G#m There's a man with a lantern D#7 And he carries her soul C#m A coal stove and a bed G#m A skillet and a hound C#m She drove a camel through a needle G#m In this sinking board walk town C#m She's my Black Market Baby G#m She's my Black Market Baby D#7 She's a diamond that G#m Wants to stay coal Wants to stay coal It doesn't really change for the rest. Listen to the tune for the exact moment of the changes, since he sometimes sneaks a syllable or two before the new chord kicks in. Enjoy!
