Poor Edward by Tom Waits
Transcribed by Johan Jeppsson

Standard tuning
Capo on 1st fret

Tom sings this ridicously low. If you want to transpose it, you could use this table:
Em -> Am
B7 -> E7
Am -> Dm
E  -> A

        Em                  B7
Did you hear the news about Edward?

       Em          Am   
On the back of his head 
B7     Em
he had another face
E        Am
Was it a woman's face 
or a young girl?

             Em              Am
They said to remove it would kill him
So poor Edward was doomed

                Em       Am
That face could laugh and cry
B7         Em
It was his devil twin
E            Am
At night she spoke to him
Things heard only in hell

          Em            Am
They were impossible to separate
Chained together for life

            Em              Am   
Finally the bell tolled his doom
B7        Em
He took a suite of rooms
E        Am
And hung himself and her 
from the balcony irons

           Em             Am
Some still believe he was freed from her
But I knew her too well
          Em           Am
I say she drove him to suicide
And took poor Edward to hell 

(It's nice to disolve the dominant (B7) with the tonic (Em) here at the end)
