Artist - Tom Waits
Album - Bad As Me
Song - Last Leaf

I thought Tom Waits had already written some of his most beautiful songs. I was wrong.

Capo 5th

        C    G           C    C7
I'm the last leaf on the tree 
    F            
The autumn took the rest 
    C               Am
But they won't take me 
        C    G           C
I'm the last leaf on the tree 

C
When the autumn wind blows 
        Am
They're already gone 
     F
They flutter to the ground 
           G
Cause they can't hang on 
        C
There's nothing in the world 
     Am
That I ain't seen 
  F                               G
I greet all the new ones that are coming in green 

I'm the last leaf on the tree 
The autumn took the rest but they wont take me 
I'm the last leaf on the tree 
They say I got staying power 
Here on the tree 
But I've been here since Eisenhower 
And I've out lived even he 

I'm the last leaf on the tree 
The autumn took the rest but they won't take me 
I'm the last leaf on the tree 

I fight off the snow 
I fight off the hail 
Nothing makes me go 
I'm like some vestigial tail 
I'll be here through eternity 
If you want to know how long 
If they cut down this tree 
I'll show up in a song 

I'm the last leaf on the tree 
The autumn took the rest but they won't take me 
        C    G           C
I'm the last leaf on the tree 
        C    G           C
I'm the last leaf on the tree 
        C    G           C
I'm the last leaf on the tree


Alternatively, if you want to play the song capo'd on the 1st:

C = E
C7 = E7
G = B
F = A
Am = Cm
