Tom Waits – Poor Edward chords

Poor Edward by Tom Waits
Transcribed by Johan Jeppsson

Standard tuning
Capo on 1st fret

Tom sings this ridicously low. If you want to transpose it, you could use this table:
Em -> Am
B7 -> E7
Am -> Dm
E  -> A

Em B7Did you hear the news about Edward?
Em Am On the back of his head
B7 Emhe had another face
E AmWas it a woman's face
B7or a young girl?
Em AmThey said to remove it would kill him
B7So poor Edward was doomed
Em AmThat face could laugh and cry
B7 EmIt was his devil twin
E AmAt night she spoke to him
B7Things heard only in hell
Em AmThey were impossible to separate
B7Chained together for life
Em Am Finally the bell tolled his doom
B7 EmHe took a suite of rooms
E AmAnd hung himself and her
B7from the balcony irons
Em AmSome still believe he was freed from her
B7But I knew her too well
Em AmI say she drove him to suicide
B7And took poor Edward to hell
(It's nice to disolve the dominant (B7) with the tonic (Em) here at the end)
