Tom Waits - Fannin Street

by Olof

If you play along with the song it doesn't really sound correct, but it fits with the 
I, and probably you, sing it, so give it a try.


C

          F       G                 C
There's a crooked street in Houston town
       F         G                  C
It's a well born path I've traveled down
            F          G              C                 Am
Now there's ruin in my name, I wish I never got off the train
  F                   G                C
I wished I'd listened to the words you said

         C
Don't go down to Fannin Street
         F              C
Don't go down to Fannin Street
         F              C  Em  Am
Don't go down to Fannin Street
          C              F
You'll be lost and never found
        C          F
You can never turn around
         C    G
Don't go down
G         C
to Fannin Street

       F              G           C
Once I held you in my arms, I was sure
      F                G                         C
And I took that silent step through the gilded door
      F                 G             C       Em     
Am
The desire to have much more, all the glitter and the roar
      F         G                  C
Now I know just where the sidewalk ends

         C
Don't go down to Fannin Street
         F              C
Don't go down to Fannin Street
         F              C  Em  Am
Don't go down to Fannin Street
          C              F
You'll be lost and never found
        C          F
You can never turn around
         C    G         C
Don't go down to Fannin Street

           Dm             G               C
When I was young I thought only of getting out
           Dm           G                 C
I said goodbye to my street, goodbye to my house
           F               G              C   Em     
  Am
Give a man gin, give a man cards, give an inch he takes a yard
      F               G                   C
And I rue the day that I stepped off this train

         C
Don't go down to Fannin Street
         F              C
Don't go down to Fannin Street
         F              C  Em  Am
Don't go down to Fannin Street
          C              F
You'll be lost and never found
        C          F
You can never turn around
         C    G         C
Don't go down to Fannin Street
