All The Time  Tom Waits
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: cg10

This song is a traditional 12-bar blues structure on those (power) chords: F5A#5C5

F5:    133xxx
A#5:   x133xx
C5:    x355xx

(If you prefer to use full chords, my feeling would be to play the song in Fm-A#m-C, but 
I might be wrong so play what you think sounds good!)

The bass riffs are:

F5e|-----------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------|D|-----------------------------------|A|----------1-1-3-3---------1-1-3-3--|E|--1-1-4-4---------1-1-4-4----------|
A#5e|-----------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------|D|----------1-1-3-3---------1-1-3-3--|A|--1-1-4-4---------1-1-4-4----------|E|-----------------------------------|
C5e|-----------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------|D|----------3-3-5-5---------3-3-5-5--|A|--3-3-6-6---------3-3-6-6----------|E|-----------------------------------|
So for the ones who are less familiar with the 12-bar blues structure, here is what it should end up like (use the complete riffs shown above instead of the following chords and repeat as indicated): F5 x4 A#5 x2 F5 x2 C5 x1 A#5 x1 F5 x2 Repeat this in loop for the rest of the song... Lyrics: You're the tree That you can't eat the fruit from I heard horses come to ride me away I want shade And a good place to shoot from If I's a clock I'd be the end of the day You know you're not the boss of me You can lift your skirt You can shake your hair But I got all the time in the world You're the ditch In the road where the wheels keep spinning You're the same dead cat Clawing it's way back grinning You know You got a very bad reputation And you're nine lives Way down the line I got a jacket to put on and a hat to wear I wouldn't waste a gallon on you out there And I got all the time in the world A bridge is only there for you to jump off of And there ain't no rain clouds that are blue I do declare my independence Baby I shot off all my fireworks for you The river's burning and the trees are on fire There's lots of good rubber left on these tires And I've got all the time in the world SOLO Baby you're the light that won't change that I got stuck at You're the fan that won't work at the motel They were all out of red so I got me a blue one Baby you're always using mine why you get you one? I know you won't go very far You left your blonde wig in the car And I got all the time in the world SOLO ************** Now here is a second version with the chords as indicators of how the lyrics match the riffs: F5 You're the tree F5 That you can't eat the fruit from I heard horses come to ride me away A#5 I want shade F5 And a good place to shoot from If I's a clock I'd be the end of the day C5 You know you're not the boss of me A#5 You can lift your skirt You can shake your hair F5 But I got all the time in the world F5 You're the ditch In the road where the wheels keep spinning F5 You're the same dead cat Clawing it's way back grinning A#5 You know You got a very bad reputation F5 And you're nine lives Way down the line C5 I got a jacket to put on and a hat to wear A#5 I wouldn't waste a gallon on you out there F5 And I got all the time in the world F5 A bridge is only there for you to jump off of F5 And there ain't no rain clouds that are blue A#5 I do declare my independence F5 Baby I shot off all my fireworks for you C5 The river's burning and the trees are on fire A#5 There's lots of good rubber left on these tires F5 And I've got all the time in the world SOLO F5 Baby you're the light that won't change that I got stuck at F5 You're the fan that won't work at the motel A#5 They were all out of red so I got me a blue one F5 Baby you're always using mine why you get you one? C5 I know you won't go very far A#5 You left your blonde wig in the car F5 And I got all the time in the world SOLO
