                            by Tom Waits

Hm7*                              Em7
red pants and the sugarman in the temple street gloom,
 Hm7                        Em7
drinkin' chivas regal in a four dollar room
     Hm7                       Em7
just another dead soldier in a powder blue night,
Hm7                     Em7
sugarman says baby everything's alright,
      Hm7 Em7   Hm7 Em7   F#5
goin' downtown, downtown, down...
      Hm7 Em7   F#5
goin' downtown, down!

montclaire de havelin doin' the st. vitus dance, lookin' for someone to chop
the lumber in his pants, how am i gonna unload all of this ice and all this
mink, all the traffic in the street but it's so hard to think, goin' downtown
down downtown.

frankie's wearin' lipstick pierre cardin, i swear to god i seen him holdin'
hands with jimmy bond, sally's high on crank and hungry for some sweets, she's
fem in the sheets but she's butch in the streets, goin' downtown down

it's the cool of the evening the sun's goin' down, i want to hold you in my
arms i want to push you around, i want to break your bottle and spill out all
your charms, come on baby we'll set off all the burglar alarms, goin' downtown
down downtown.

red pants and the sugarman in the temple, drinkin' chivas regal in a four
dollar room, just another dead soldier in a powder blue night, red pants turns
to sugarman and says everything's alright, goin' downtown down downtown.


*one note: chords I used in this song sounds better played like this...

Hm7 7th EADGBe: 02x000
Em7 7th         002x00
F#5 9th         0022xx   ....i don't play the "e" string so often, I even play first 
strings only...

   ...and sorry, I don't know the exact names of these chords so I had to do it like this.

any suggestions, please e-mail me: borajic@yahoo.com...thanks!

Lack of accuracy. Original (Heartattack and wine) played in Am.
Even if you transpose this tab, it's wrong.
In verse should be :
Am(7) - E7

Lack of accuracy. Tab incomplete. Clearly wrong. They don't what they are doing. I don't know what else to say....the chords are wrong, they don't understand notation itself.

I want to post or [tab]
