Tom Waits - Tango Til Theyre Sore tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
OK, this is, to my ears, correct to a point...it's more of an accurate interpretation 
an accurate copy. Either way, it sounds good on an acoustic, so here we go:

When (E3) appears in the tab below, don't be too alarmed. It refers to pressing the fret 
the top E three frets from the root barre (The whole song consists of barre chords). 
Here's an example:

Fm: 133111
Fm (E3): 431111
As above, you may have to depress certain frets, but I'll list suitable chords at the 
of the tab in order to make more sense. Now the chords and lyrics:

First Verse:
           Fm            Fm(E3)        
             A#/Bbm(E3)
Well you play that tarantella all the hounds will start to roar
     C7             C7(E3)            Fm             Fm(E3)
The boys all go to hell and then the Cubans hit the floor
      Fm              Fm(E3)        A#/Bbm  
           A#/Bbm (E3)
They drive along the pipeline, they tango 'til they're sore
      C7               C7(E3)              Fm        
       Fm(E3)
They take apart their nightmares and they leave them by the door
       A#/Bbm          A#/Bbm(E3)  C7       
     C7(E3)
Let me fall out of the window with confetti in my hair
Fm                Fm(E3)      A#/Bbm        
 A#/Bbm(E3)
Deal out Jacks or Better on a blanket by the stairs
      G               G(E3)         Fm           Fm(E3)
I'll tell you all my secrets, but I lie about my past
    A#/Bbm         C7          Fm
And send me off to bed for evermore

(Repeat chord sequence using following lyrics:

Make sure they play my theme song, I guess daisies will have to do
Just get me to New Orleans and paint shadows on the pews
Turn the spit on that pig and kick the drum and let me down
Put my clarinet beneath your bed 'til I get back in town
Let me fall out of the window with confetti in my hair
Deal out Jacks or Better on a blanket by the stairs
I'll tell you all my secrets, but I lie about my past
So send me off to bed for evermore

Just make sure she's all in calico and the color of a doll
Wave the flag on Cadillac day, and a skillet on the wall
Cut me a switch or hold your breath 'til the sun goes down
Write my name on the hood, send me off to another town, and just
And just let me fall out of the window with confetti in my hair
Deal out Jacks or Better on a blanket by the stairs
Tell you all my secrets, but I lie about my past
Will you send me off to bed for evermore

Fall out of the window with confetti in my hair
Deal out Jacks or Better on a blanket by the stairs
I'll tell you all my secrets, but I lie about my past
Send me off to bed for evermore, send me off to bed for evermore
