This is one of my favorite songs by Tom Waits.
It sounds really beautiful with a not as raspy voice
sings it (no offense Tom). It is pretty simple. Standard
tuning. If you want the right key put a capo on the first
fret. You need to have a real low voice to match his key.
I usually end up putting a capo on the second or third
fret so I can reach the lower notes.Also, it takes a
while to get used to his rhythm and sound in the song.
But anyways, here is the chords if you don't already
know them:

C:  x32010
F:  xx3211
G:  320003
E:  022100
Am: x02210
C/B:x20010
C7  x32310
Fm: x33111




       C                           F
Someday the silver moon and I will go to dreamland
       G                                 C
I will close my eyes and wake up there in dreamland
                         E            Am
And Tell me who will put flowers on a flower's grave?
F             G
Who will say a prayer?

       C                         F
Will I meet a China rose there in dreamland?
        G                   C
Or does love lie bleeding in dreamland?
               C/B        F
Are these days forever and always?

                 C
And if we are to die tonight
           G           C   C7
Is there a moonlight up ahead?
    F           C
And if we are to die tonight
        G         C
Another rose will bloom

      F    C
For a faded rose
               E           F
Will I be the one that you save?
  F           Fm
I love when it showers
    C          F
But no one puts flowers
C   G       C
On a flower's grave

       F              C
As one rose blooms and another will die
     G               C  C7
It's always been that way
  F           Fm
I remember the showers
    C          F
But no one puts flowers
C   G       C
On a flower's grave

    F           C
And if we are to die tonight
           G           C    C7
Is there a moonlight up ahead?
  F           Fm
I remember the showers
    C          F
But no one puts flowers
C   G       C
On a flower's grave
