Tom Waits: I wish I was in New Orleans
Words and Music: Tom Waits
Album: A Japanese import -  (Sorry, I can't read Katakana,
			     but it probably says Tom-u Waits-u)

I included a line for the beat, which in most places
is obvious, but there is one measure that has two beats
and that threw me when I went to write it down. 

Figuring out the words for this one is as challenging as
the music. I left "----" in a few spots. Anyone speak Waits?

There is one chord whose correct name somewhat eludes me.
After checking with Paul Zimmerman's chord theory page on
Olga, I think it is Ebdim7, which would be  Eb Gb Bbb Dbb
or Eb Gb A C.

	And wear the dress I like so well
	Meet me at the old saloon
	Make sure there's a Dixie Moon
	New Orleans I'll be there

	And deal the cards, roll the dice
	If it ain't that ole ---------
	--------------- me and you
	Sam Jones and all?????

	And I wish I was in New Orleans
	I can see it in my dreams
	Arm in arm down Burgundy
(rit)	A bottle and, my friends and me,
	New Orleans I'll be there
