I play most 7-chord like they are diplayd below. Kind of blues-chords as I was taught some time ago.
You can get it groooving really good this way, as you are almost sliding down Bm7-A7-G7---F7.

Bm             F#7               Bm F#7 Bm
Friday left me fumblin' with the blues
         Bm7     A7       G7             F#7*
And it's hard to win when you always lose
            Bm7       A7          G7
Because the nightspots spend your spirit
         Bm7*               E7
beat your head against the wall
Bm                F#7          Bm F#7 Bm
two dead-ends you still got to choose

             Bm        F#7               Bm F#7 Bm
You know the bartenders they all know my name
         Bm7     A7       G7             F#7*
and they catch me when I'm pulling up lame
          Bm7  A7       G7     F#7*    Bm7*       E7
and I'm a pool-shooting-shimmy-shyester shaking my head
Bm               F#7         Bm F#7 Bm
when I should be living clean in stead

             Bm               F#7            Bm F#7 Bm
You know the ladies I've been seeing off and on
          Bm7        A7   G7           F#7*
well they spend your love then they're gone
    Bm7      A7     G7     F#7*    Bm7*       E7
you can't be loving someone who is savage and cruel
Bm        F#7                Bm     F#7      Bm
Take your love and then they leave on out of town... No they do...

[Solo]
Bm---------F#7---------Bm---F#7---Bm
Bm7---A7---G7----------F#7*
Bm7---A7---G7---F#7*---Bm7*-------E7
Bm---------F#7---------Bm---F#7---Bm

When I'm falling in love, It's such a breeze
but it's standing up that's so hard for me
I wanna sqeeze you but I'm scared to death I'll break your back instead
You know your perfume, well it won't let me be

             Bm        F#7               Bm F#7 Bm
You know the bartenders they all know my name
         Bm7     A7       G7             F#7*
and they catch me when I'm pulling up lame
          Bm7  A7       G7     F#7*    Bm7*       E7
and I'm a pool-shooting-shimmy-shyester shaking my head
Bm               F#7         Bm F#7 Bm
when I should be living clean in stead

so come on baby, let your love light shine
gotta bury me inside of your fire
cause your eyes are enough to blind me
you're like a-looking at the sun
you gotta whisper tell me I'm the one
come on and whisper tell me I'm the one
gotta whisper tell me I'm the one
come on and whisper tell me I'm the one

not bad, except its confusing since there is no such thing as an H chord.

Thank you for the tab! This is great. I think Waits' version is in C though, so if you want the same sound, you should transpose the song half a step up. Thanks again!

PS: H is B in German...

I meant Waits' version is in Cm (instead of Bm), sorry for the possible confusion, so no change in the chords pattern, just transpose everything half a step up!
