Noticed that no-one had posted this great old Waits tune, so here ya'll go

With some basic fill in bass string runs from the G chord up to the B7
and again from the G down to the E chord this sounds pretty passable

If you like it rate it,  * flatwound *

                             PONCHO'S LAMENT
                               Tom Waits


         F               G        F
   The stairs sound so lonely without you
E7                           F             F            G           F    A
   I ain't made my bed in a week, Coffee stains on the paper I'm writing
            D7                      G
   And I'm too choked up inside to speak
                F    G                      F         
   Well yes  I know    that our differences   pulled us apart
 E7                              F           F    G           F   A
   Never spoke a word heart to heart,   I'm glad that you're gone
          D7          G               F    G
   But I wish to the Lord you'd come home 


         F    G              F   E7                     F
Yes I'm gla--ad that you're gone,  Got the feeling so strong
      F   G           F   A        D7          G                    F   G
I'm glad that you're gone,  But I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

 
             F            G           F
   Well my guitar still plays your favorite song
E7                                                   F
   Though the strings have been outta tune for some time
          F              G         F               A
   Every time I play a chord,   I pray out to the Lord
                D7               G                F    G
   That you'll quit your honkey-tonk and sing my song


         F    G              F   E7                     F
Yes I'm gla--ad that you're gone,  Got the feeling so strong
      F   G           F   A        D7          G                    F   G
I'm glad that you're gone,  But I wish to the Lord that you'd come home


 F                        G            F
   So I'll Throw another log onto the fire, 
 E7                                 F
   And, I'll admit I'm a lousy liar
           F                   G         F                 A
   As the coals die down and flicker, I hear that guitar picker
             D7              G            F    G
   Play the song we used to sing so long ago 


         F    G                   F   E7                     F
Yes I'm gla--ad glad that you're gone,  Got the feeling so strong
      F   G           F   A         D7          G               F
I'm glad that you're gone,  But I wish to the Lord you'd come home
