			     BAD AS ME-Tom Waits
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not exactly right, but close enough to get you through the song.

Tuning:Standard

Verse:
You can figure out the rhythm pretty quickly just by listening, but it basically just 
switches between these two chords, 3 measures for the first one and 1 measure for the second.

e|---8-------------------8--------------------------------------------------|B|---9-------------------8--------------------------------------------------|G|---8-------------------8--------------------------------------------------|D|---10------------------8--------------------------------------------------|A|---8-------------------7--------------------------------------------------|E|-----------------------8--------------------------------------------------|
And stay on the second for an extra 2 measures before going into the chorus
Chorus 1:Switch between another 2 chordse|---8-----------------7------------8-------------------8-------------------|B|---9-----------------8------------9-------------------9-------------------|G|---8-----------------7------------8-------------------8-------------------|D|---10----------------9------------10------------------10------------------|A|---8-----------------7------------8-------------------8-------------------|E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
while another guitar plays the riffe|------------------------------------------------------12/13--12/13--12/13~|B|------------------------------------------------------12/13--12/13--12/13~|G|----------------------------------5------3--1-----------------------------|D|----6------5--3--------------------------------3---2----------------------|A|-----------------6---6p7--------------------------------------------------|E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
From there only minor changes, during other verses a guitar plays notes from these not-chords, don't know the rhythm exactly but just pick single notes from thesee|-----13---------------------------12--------------------------------------|B|-----13---------------------------12--------------------------------------|G|-----13---------------------------12--------------------------------------|D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
and the next chorus repeats once and changes to something likee|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|----------------------------------5------3--1----------5--3---1-----------|D|----6------5--3--------------------------------3---2h3--------------------|A|-----------------6---6p7--------------------------------------------------|E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Not a great tab, but good enough for someone better to figure out the rest.
