FANNIN STREET  (Tom Waits)   [tab by: AL #13]

capo on 3rd fret
(A*->A4->F#m is a variation (1 finger) on E string: E:-5-4-2- )

intro: A

          D       E                 A
There's a crooked street in Houston town
       D         E                  A
It's a well long path I've traveled down
            D          E              A*        (A4)     F#m
Now there's ruin in my name, I wish I never got off the train
  D                   E                A
I wished I'd listened to the words you said

         A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street
         D                A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street
         D                A*    (A4)  F#m
Don't go down...to Fannin Street...oh yeah
          A              D
You'll be lost and never found
        A          D
You can never turn around
         A     E            A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street

       D              E           A
Once I held you in my arms, I was sure
      D                E                        A
And I took that silent step through the gilded door
      D                 E             A*      (A4)    F#m
The desire to have much more, all the glitter and the roar
      D         E                  A
Now I know just where the sidewalk ends

         A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street
         D                A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street
         D                A*    (A4)  F#m
Don't go down...to Fannin Street...oh yeah
          A              D
You'll be lost and never found
        A          D
You can never turn around
         A     E            A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street

           D          E                    A
When I was young I thought only of getting out
           D            E                A
I said goodbye to my street, goodbye to my house
           D               E              A*   (A4)       F#m
Give a man gin, give a man cards, give an inch he takes a yard
      D                E                   A
And I rue the day that I stepped off this train

         A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street
         D                A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street
         D                A*    (A4)  F#m
Don't go down...to Fannin Street...oh yeah
          A              D
You'll be lost and never found
        A          D
You can never turn around
         A     E            A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street
         A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street
         D                A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street
         D                A*    (A4)  F#m
Don't go down...to Fannin Street...oh yeah
                A              D
Cause you'll be lost and never found
        A          D
You can never turn around
         A     E            A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street
         A     E            A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street
         A     E            A
Don't go down...to Fannin Street.
