Em      Em(maj7)  Em7   Em6    
    In - side a broken clock,     
Em        Em(maj7)   Em7      Em6 Cmaj7 F
   Splash - ing the wine with all  the rain--- dogs,
Em     Em(maj7)      Em7   Em6   
   Tax - i?... we'd rather walk,     
Em        Em(maj7) Em7  Em6  Cmaj7 F
    Hudd - le a doorway with  the rain---- dogs!
B7            Baug  B7  Em  Em(maj7)  Em7    Em6 Cmaj7

Em     Em(maj7)   Em7       Em6   
   The rum pours strong and thin,

     Beat out the dustman with  the rain---- dogs,
Em     Em(maj7)   Em7       Em6   
   A - board a shipwrecked train,     
Em      Em(maj7)  Em7  Em6 Cmaj7 F
    Give my um - brella to  the rain---- dogs!

B7                            Em    Em(maj7)   Em7    Em6 Cmaj7
    Her long hair black as a raven,          |  /  /   /   /  |
B7                              Em   Em(maj7)  Em7
