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

Tabbed by: cg10

This song is a traditional 12-bar blues structure on those (power) chords: F5–A#5–C5

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:

   F5
e|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------|
A|----------1-1-3-3---------1-1-3-3--|
E|--1-1-4-4---------1-1-4-4----------|

   A#5
e|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------|
D|----------1-1-3-3---------1-1-3-3--|
A|--1-1-4-4---------1-1-4-4----------|
E|-----------------------------------|

   C5
e|-----------------------------------|
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
