Chords
Transpose
        Another old Waits tune I couldn't find on here, so
        worked out a simple version, I'm not 100% about the
        lyrics, but it's the best I could hear.
        Oh and the Am chord is really just a step up from
        G to C

                         A SIGHT FOR SORE EYES


C F C A sight for sore eyes, It's a long time no see
C Am Dm G Workin' hard hardly workin', Hey man you know me
Am C F C Water under the bridge, Did ya see my new car
C Am Dm G Well it's bought and it's paid for, Parked out-side of the bar
C F C And hey barkeep whats keeping you, Keep pouring drinks
C Am Dm G For all these palookas, Hey you know what I thinks
Am C F C That we toast to the old days, And Di-Mag-gio too
C Am Dm G C G G An' old Drysdales and Mantle, Whitey Ford and to you
C F C Oh you know the ol' gang ain't around, Everyone has left town
C Am Dm G 'Cept for Thelma 'n' Giardina, Said they just might be down
Am C F C Oh half drunk all the time, An' I'm all drunk the rest
C Am Dm G C G Monks still the champion, Oh but I am the best
C F C And hey barkeep whats keeping you, Keep pouring drinks
C Am Dm G For all these palookas, Hey you know what I thinks
Am C F C That we toast to the old days, And Di-Mag-gio too
C Am Dm G C G G An' old Drysdales and Mantle, Whitey Ford and to you
C F C Guess you heard about Nash, He was killed in a crash
C Am Dm G Oh that must have been two, Or three years ago now
Am C F C Yeah, he spun out and he rolled, Hit a telephone pole
C Am Dm G And died with the radio on
C F C Flo she's married with a kid, Finally split up with Sid
C Am Dm G He's up north for a nickles worth, For armed robbery
Am C F C And I'll play you some pinball, No you ain't got a chance
C Am Dm G Then go on over and, Ask her to dance
C F C And hey barkeep whats keeping you, Keep pouring drinks
C Am Dm G For all these palookas, Hey you know what I thinks
Am C F C That we toast to the old days, And Di-Mag-gio too
C Am Dm G C C An' old Drysdales and Mantle, Whitey Ford and to you-oo-o
