Tango Til They're Sore
Tom Waits
From Raindogs (1985)

[Intro]

Em   Am  B7  Em


[Verse 1]

Well ya play that tarantella
          Am
All the hounds will start to roll
    B7
The boys all go ta hell 
             Em  
And then the Cubans hit the floor
           
And they drive along the pipeline
     Am
They tango 'till they're sore
     B7
They take apart their nightmares 
         Em 
And they leave 'em by the door


[Chorus]

       Am
Let me fall out of the window 
        B7
With confetti in my hair
Em
Deal out Jacks or better 
     Am
On a blanket by the stairs
     B7
I’ll tell you all my secrets
      Em
But I lie about my past
   Am             B7           Em
So send me off to bed for ever more


[Verse 2]

Make sure they play my theme song
        Am
I guess daisies will have to do
     B7
Just get me to New Orleans
          Em
And paint shadows on the pews

Turn the spit on that pig
             Am   
And kick the drum and let me down
       B7   
Put my clarinet beneath my bed
     Em
Till I get back in town


[Chorus]

       Am
Let me fall out of the window 
        B7
With confetti in my hair
Em
Deal out Jacks or better 
     Am
On a blanket by the stairs
     B7
I’ll tell you all my secrets
      Em
But I lie about my past
   Am             B7           Em
So send me off to bed for ever more


[Verse 3]

Just make sure she's all in calico
       Am
In the color of a doll
         B7 
Wave the flag on Cadillac day
      Em
And a skillet on the wall

Cut me a switch
             Am 
Or hold your breath till the sun goes down
         B7
Write my name on the hood
           Em
Send me off to another town


[Chorus]

       Am
Let me fall out of the window 
        B7
With confetti in my hair
Em
Deal out Jacks or better 
     Am
On a blanket by the stairs
     B7
I’ll tell you all my secrets
      Em
But I lie about my past
   Am             B7           Em
So send me off to bed for ever more

       Am
Let me fall out of the window 
        B7
With confetti in my hair
Em
Deal out Jacks or better 
     Am
On a blanket by the stairs
     B7
I’ll tell you all my secrets
      Em
But I lie about my past
   Am             B7           Em
So send me off to bed for ever more

Highly simplified but fairly accurate. Capo 1 to match the album version.

All the chords are half a step below the actual recording, but they are accurate.
