Song: Tom's Diner
Artist: Suzanne Vega
Composer: Suzanne Vega
Album: Solitude standing

Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' at ultimateGuitar.com)
25th Sept 2014

The original album track was sung 'a cappella', and there have
been many alternative dance mixes, and various live and acoustic
versions since. This is my own interpretation for acoustic
guitar players.

CAPO: 2nd fret (Sounds in the key of F#m)

[Intro]
    Emadd9         Cmaj7
||:  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  :|| [x2]


[Chorus]
            Emadd9
||: Da -da! Da, da, da -da! Da, da, da -da!
    Cmaj7
      Da, da, da -da, da -da! :|| [x4]


[Verse 1]
      Emadd9                         Cmaj7
I am sitting, in the morning, at the diner on the corner,
      Emadd9                         Cmaj7
I am waiting, at the counter, for the man to pour the coffee,
        G6                           Fmaj7#11
And he fills it only halfway, and be - fore I even argue,
        Em                             B7      
He is looking out the window at some - body coming in!


[Chorus]
            Emadd9
||: Da -da!  Da, da, da -da!  Da, da, da -da!
    Cmaj7
     Da, da, da -da, da -da! :|| [x2]


[Verse 2]
       Emadd9                            Cmaj7
"It is always nice to see you!", says the man behind the counter,
       Emadd9                         Cmaj7
To the woman who has come in, she is shaking her umbrella,
       G6                             Fmaj7#11
And I look the other way, as they are kissing their hellos,
                Em
And I'm pre - tending not to see them,
           B7
And in - stead I pour the milk!

[Chorus]
            Emadd9
||: Da -da!  Da, da, da -da!  Da, da, da -da!
    Cmaj7
     Da, da, da -da, da -da! :|| [x2]


[Verse 3]
  Emadd9                       Cmaj7
I open up the paper, there’s a story of an actor,
       Emadd9                             Cmaj7
Who had died while he was drinking, it was no one I had heard of,
          G6                          Fmaj7#11
And I’m turning to the horoscope, and looking for the funnies,
          Em                              B7
When I'm feeling someone watching me, and so I raise my head!


[Chorus]
            Emadd9
||: Da -da!  Da, da, da -da!  Da, da, da -da!
    Cmaj7
     Da, da, da -da, da -da! :|| [x2]


[Verse 4]
          Emadd9                        Cmaj7
There’s a woman on the outside, looking inside! Does she see me?
        Emadd9
No, she does not really see me,
           Cmaj7
'Cause she sees her own reflection,
         G6                             Fmaj7#11
And I’m trying not to notice that she’s hitching up her skirt,
                    Em
And while she’s straightening her stockings,
     B7
Her hair has gotten wet!


[Chorus]
             Emadd9
||: Da - da!  Da, da, da - da!  Da, da, da - da!
   Cmaj7
    Da, da, da -da, da -da! :|| [x2]


[Break]
    Emadd9         Cmaj7
||:  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  :|| [x2]


[Verse 5]
              Emadd9                              Cmaj7
Oh, ...this ...rain it will continue through the morning,
                        Emadd9
As I’m listening to the bells of the cathedral,
      Cmaj7                                        G6
I am thinking of your voice, and ...of ...the ...midnight picnic,
           Fmaj7#11
Once upon a time before the rain began,
        Em                           B7
And I finish up my coffee, and it's time to catch the train!


[Chorus]
            Emadd9
||: Da -da!   Da, da, da -da! Da, da, da -da!
    Cmaj7                                    Emadd9
      Da, da, da -da, da -da! :|| [x4]      |  /  ||
