                             BAD AS ME-Tom Waits
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not exactly right, but close enough to get you through the song.

Tuning:Standard

Verse:
You can figure out the rhythm pretty quickly just by listening, but it basically just 
switches between these two chords, 3 measures for the first one and 1 measure for the second.

e|---8-------------------8--------------------------------------------------|
B|---9-------------------8--------------------------------------------------|
G|---8-------------------8--------------------------------------------------|
D|---10------------------8--------------------------------------------------|
A|---8-------------------7--------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------8--------------------------------------------------|

And stay on the second for an extra 2 measures before going into the chorus

Chorus 1:
Switch between another 2 chords
e|---8-----------------7------------8-------------------8-------------------|
B|---9-----------------8------------9-------------------9-------------------|
G|---8-----------------7------------8-------------------8-------------------|
D|---10----------------9------------10------------------10------------------|
A|---8-----------------7------------8-------------------8-------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
while another guitar plays the riff
e|------------------------------------------------------12/13--12/13--12/13~|
B|------------------------------------------------------12/13--12/13--12/13~|
G|----------------------------------5------3--1-----------------------------|
D|----6------5--3--------------------------------3---2----------------------|
A|-----------------6---6p7--------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

From there only minor changes, during other verses a guitar plays notes from these 
not-chords, don't know the rhythm exactly but just pick single notes from these
e|-----13---------------------------12--------------------------------------|
B|-----13---------------------------12--------------------------------------|
G|-----13---------------------------12--------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 and the next chorus repeats once and changes to something like
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------5------3--1----------5--3---1-----------|
D|----6------5--3--------------------------------3---2h3--------------------|
A|-----------------6---6p7--------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------5------3--1-----------------------------|
D|----6------5--3--------------------------------3------8----8---8----------|
A|-----------------6---6p7------------------------------7----7---7----------|
E|------------------------------------------------------8----8---8----------|

Next verse

e|-----8------8--------8------8-----------8------8--------------------------|
B|-----9------9--------9------9-----------8------8--------------------------|
G|-----8-10---8-10-----8-10---8-10---X3---8------8--------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------10-----10-----------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-----8------8--------8------8---------------------------------------------|
B|-----9------9--------9------9--------------------------//13~13~13~~~------|
G|-----8-10---8-10-----8-10---8-10---X3------10/9/10~~~---------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------10/9/10~~~---------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus:Basically the same as the last one with a couple of new riffs

Verse-same as verse 2 with some new riffs

Verse until the end with some playing around

End on
e|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|
G|-------------------------|
D|-----8----8---8----------|
A|-----7----7---7----------|
E|-----8----8---8----------|

Not a great tab, but good enough for someone better to figure out the rest.
