Tom Waits – Black Market Baby chords

Left handed
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#mShe lives in a house
D#7That's way back off the road
G#mThere's a man with a lantern
D#7And he carries her soul
C#mA coal stove and a bed
G#mA skillet and a hound
C#mShe drove a camel through a needle
G#mIn this sinking board walk town
C#mShe's my Black Market Baby
G#mShe's my Black Market Baby
D#7She's a diamond that
G#mWants 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!
