Tip That Waitress
Loudon Wainwright III

Capo 2


C            
She's been on her feet nearly half the damn night
Am
Bringing you beverage and your late night bite
F
She remains cheerful when you're nasty and tight
G
Makes change for a fifty in dim candlelight.
C
Ignoring your groping hoping you might
Am                                                    F  G
Come across with a tip and sympathize with her plight.
         C
Tip that waitress.

Shes getting her masters supporting her mom
Amidst the confusion she remains cool and calm
She knows exits in case of a fire or bomb
She knows all the words to the 23rd psalm
She handles her tray with panache and aplomb
Her brothers a Quaker, her dad was in Naa-aaa-aaa-aam
Tip that waitress.

Bridge 1
Em
Tip that waitress,
          C
She's been waiting on you.
Em
Skip the small change,
             G
Slap down a dollar or two.

Her arches are aching, her lower backs shot
Her varicose vein hurts like hell when its hot
Her uniform's too tight, tasteful its not
She knows the specials and they are not a lot.
The cook is on Qualudes the bus boy deals pot
If she had a real job she'd quit on the spot
So tip that waitress.



This plea for gratuity's gone on way too long,
Theres a time and a place where them things belong
The stage ain't a soap box, this is only a song,
To dwell on the matter much more would be wrong.
And people get by, she'll get along
But I think she gets off when I come on
Stro--ooo-ooo- ong
So tip that waitress.

Bridge 2 
Tip that waitress,
She's been waiting on you.
Skip the small change,
Slap down a fiver or two.

She's been on her feet nearly half the damn night
Bringing you beverage and your late night bite
She remains cheerful when you're nasty and tight
Makes change for a fifty in dim candlelight.
Ignoring your groping hoping you might
Come across with a tip and sympathize with her plight.
Tip that waitress.

This should be Capo 2, but the rest seems great!
