FOREIGN AFFAIR (Tom Waits)
Album Foreign Affairs (1977)

Intro :C -Am7-Dm7-G7 / C -Am7-Dm7-G7-C

        C            Am7             Dm7            G7
when traveling abroad in the continental style
              C                    Dm7           G7     C-Am7-Dm7-G7
it's my belief one must attempt to be discreet
        C                Am7                    Dm7        G7
and subsequently bear in mind your transient position
     C                 Dm7             G7     Am7
allows you a perspective that's unique 

                       Dm7          G7            C                   Am7
and though you'll find your itinerary's a blessing and a curse
        Dm7                 G7                  C       Am7
your wanderlust won't let you settle down
                Dm7                G7                       C                Am7
and you'll wonder how you ever fathomed that you'd be content
             Dm7                           G7       
to stay within the city limits of a small midwestern town
  
              C        Am7                   Dm7                 G7
most vagabonds i knowed don't ever want to find the culprit
           C                     Am7              Dm7         G7
that remains the object of their long relentless quest
         Am7               Am7           Dm7             G7
the obsession's in the chasing and not the apprehending
           C                     Dm7           G7   C-Am7-Dm7-G7
the pursuit you see and never the arrest 

           E7                                   Am7                 D7
without fear of contradiction "bon voyage" is always hollered
         Dm7               G7                         C     Am7
in conjunction with a handkerchief from shore
E7                                            Am7
by a girl that drives a rambler and furthermore
   D7            Dm7                                        G7
is overly concerned that she won't see him anymore
     
                          C                   Am7
planes and trains and boats and buses
           Dm7   G7  C                    Am7         Dm7 G7-E7
characteristically evoke a common attitude of blue
   Am7                  Am7              Dm7             G7
unless you have a suitcase and a ticket and a passport
            C                       Dm7   G7      C-Am7-Dm7-G7
and the cargo that they're carrying is you

               C Am7    Dm7              G7
a foreign affair juxtaposed with a stateside
          C                                        Dm7 G7
and domestically approved romantic fancy
       Am7        Am7               Dm7                G7
is mysteriously attractive due to circumstances knowing
         C             Am7          Dm7-G7-C
it will only be parlayed into a memory  

C-Am7-Dm7-G7-C
