Tom Waits - Ponchos Lament chords

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