Tom Waits - The Ghosts of Saturday Night (After Hours at Napoleone's Pizza House)
from the album The Heart of Saturday Night

[Chords used]
    Bb7   E9   Am7   D7  Gm7    F7  Eb7
The song is in 6/4 time, like ONE two three FOUR five six

Bb7       Eb9
Bb7       Eb9
Bb7       Am7  D7  Gm7  F7  Eb7

Bb7            Eb9
A cab combs the snake,
         Bb7                             Eb9
Tryin' to rake in that last night's fare,
And a solitary sailor
      Am7          D7                 Gm7    F7     Eb7
Who spends the facts of his life like small change on strangers...

Bb7                         Eb9                               Bb7      Eb9
Paws his inside P-coat pocket for a welcome twenty-five cents,
And the last bent butt from a packet of Kents,
        Am7          D7               Gm7
As he dreams of a waitress with Maxwell House eyes,
    F7     Eb7
    marmalade thighs with scrambled yellow hair.

Bb7                Eb9              Bb7        Eb9 
Her rhinestone-studded moniker says, "Irene"
                          Bb7                         Eb9  
As she wipes the wisps of dishwater blonde from her eyes

Bb7       Am7  D7  Gm7  F7  Eb7

Bb7          Eb9                   
               And the Texaco beacon
Bb7       Eb9
burns on,
              Bb7                                   Eb9
The steel-belted attendant with a 'Ring and Valve Special'...

      Bb7             Am7         D7     
Cryin' "Fill'er up and check that oil"
                Gm7            F7                      Eb7
"You know it could be a distributor and it could be a coil."

Bb7      Eb9                                  Bb7      Eb9
   The early mornin' final edition's on the stands,
                       Bb7                                Eb9                
And that town cryer's cryin' there with nickels in his hands.
Bb7                    Am7            D7      
       Pigs in a blanket sixty-nine cents,
Gm7               F7                 Eb7
Eggs - roll 'em over and a package of Kents,

Bb7                 Eb9        Am7             Gm7 
Adam and Eve on a log, you can sink 'em damn straight,
  F7           Eb7
Hash browns, hash browns, you know I can't be late.

Bb7           Eb9
Bb7           Eb9
Bb7           Am7    D7   Gm7  F7  Eb7

Bb7           Eb9                            Bb7           Eb9
  And the early dawn cracks out a carpet of diamond

Bb7           Eb9             Bb7                            Eb9
Across a cash crop car lot filled with twilight Coupe Devilles,
             Bb7        Am7     D7      
Leaving the town in a-keeping
                      Gm7    F7     Eb7
Of the one who is sweeping

(slows down)
        Bb7            Eb9    
Up the ghosts of Saturday night...
