Tabbed by: cg10
This is a simple version in the same key as the version on "Frank's Wild Years", 
with complete lyrics. It owes a lot to Todd Olsen's tab, so thanks for the cues!

[F#m] All night long on the broken glass
[Bm] livin in a medicine chest
[C#] mediteromanian hotel back
[F#m] sprawled across a roll top desk

[F#m] the monkey rode the blade on an overhead fan
[Bm] they paint the donkey blue if you pay
[C#] I got a telephone call from Istanbul
[F#m] my baby's coming home today

Chorus:
[Bm7] will you sell me one of those if I shave my head
[E] get me out of town is what fireball said
[A] never trust a man in a blue trench coat
[A] never drive a car when you're dead
[Bm] Saturday's a festival Friday's a gem
[C#] dye your hair yellow and raise your hem
[F#m] follow me to beulah's on dry creek road
  [Bm]                        [C#]
I got to wear the hat that my baby done sewed

Repeat chorus followed by:

[F#m] take me down to buy a tux on red rose bear
[Bm] got to cut a hole in the day
[C#] I got a telephone call from Istanbul
[F#m] my baby's coming home today

Repeat chorus
