Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
If u holler n growl enough like Mr. Waits when you are playing
it sounds passable, as long as you don't play along with the track

Updated : removed chord diagrams, added Am C Dm to third line, 2012

           Am                   Am
Well they call me William The Pleaser
        Am                   E
I sold opium, fireworks and lead
          Am          C           Dm
Now I'm telling my troubles to strangers
           Am         E            Am
When the shadows get long I'll be dead
 
         Am                              Am
Now her hair was as black as a bucket of tar
             Am                    E
Skin was as white as a cuttlefish bone
        Am        C      Dm
I left Texas to follow Lucinda            
          Am         E        Am
Now I'll never see heaven or home

          Am                  Am
I made a wish on silver of moonlight
       Am                       E
A sly grin and a bowl full of stars
       Am         C         Dm
Like a kid who captures a firefly
               Am      E          Am
And leaves it only to die in the jar

      Am                        Am        
As I kick at the clouds at my hanging
      Am                  E
As I swing out over the crowd
         Am          C         Dm
I will search every face for Lucinda's
             Am          E           Am
And she will go off with me down to hell

    Am                         Am
I thought I'd broke loose of Lucinda
    Am                            E
The rain returned and so did the wind
              Am           C           Dm
I cast this burden on the God that's within me
         Am             E           Am 
I will leave this old world and go free

            D                   Am
The devil dances inside empty pockets
           D                  Am
But she did'nt want money or pearls
           D                  Am
No, that wasn't enough for Lucinda
      B                  E
She wasn't that kind of girl

           Am                    Am
Now I've fallen from grace for Lucinda
          Am                       E
Whoever thought that hell'd be so cold
       Am          C            Dm
I did well for an old tin can sailor
          Am        E          Am
But she wanted the bell in my soul

       Am                   Am
I've spoken to God on the mountain
          Am                E
And I've swam in the Irish sea
       Am        C              Dm
I ate fire and drank from the Ganges
         Am              E       Am
And I'll beg there for mercy for me

    Am                          Am
I thought I'd broke loose of Lucinda
          Am                      E
The rain returned and so did the wind
         Am       C           Dm   
I was standing outside the Whitehorse
       Am       E         Am
Oh but I was afraid to go in

   Am                      Am
I heard someone pull the trigger
              Am                      E
Her breasts heaved in the moonlight again
             Am        C           Dm
There was a smear of gold in the window
         Am          E           Am
And then I was the jewel of her sin

      Am                   Am
They call me William The Pleaser
        Am                    E
I sold opium, fireworks and lead
          Am          C           Dm
Now I'm telling my troubles to strangers
           Am          E           Am
When the shadows get long I'll be dead

         Am                              Am
Now her hair was as black as a bucket of tar
             Am                    E
Skin was as white as a cuttlefish bone
        Am        C      Dm
I left Texas to follow Lucinda
           Am        E        Am
Now I'll never see heaven or home
          Am         E       Am
No I'll never see heaven or home
          Am         E       Am
No I'll never see heaven or home
