...UNION SQUARE... by Tom Waits
------------------.............

*from 'Rain Dogs' (1985)*


Verse 1:

      B7
Well, time is always money,
        E7
For the boys on Union Square.
          B7
Go on and bust your ass 'till doomsday,
          E7
Don't for-get to say your prayers.

B7
 Someone's riding down the backstreet,
     E7
Said papa got a brand new slack.
         B7
And your baby is handcuffed on the front seat,
          E7                    F#7
Sit right there, boy and you re-lax. C'mon, honey...

Chorus 1:

                B7                     F#7
We're all going down, down, down, down-town,
            B7         E7                B7    F#7  B7
We're going down, down-town, we're going down, down-town.

Verse 2:

          B7
Well, you spill out of the Cinema Fourteen,
        E7
To that drag bar, there on the block.
B7
 Whizzin' on down in front of the East Coast,
E7
 Bank rolled up on your sock.

    B7
She stand right there, for your pleasure,
E7
 Half Puerto Rican Chinese.
           B7
You got to find your baby somebody to measure,
             E7             F#7
I'm going to get me some of these, baby.
C'mon honey, do you hear what I'm doing now?

Chorus 2:

                B7                     F#7
We're all going down, down, down, down-town,
            B7         E7                B7    F#7  B7
We're going down, down-town, we're going down, down-town.

Verse 3:

      B7
'Bout four in the morning on a Sunday,
E7
 Sacco drinking whiskey in church.
B7
 Half pint of festival brandy,
     E7
That boy 'bout to fall right off his perch.

B7
 Well, that guy in the sweater's off duty,
E7
 Well, he's out in front of that Welfare hotel.
    B7
The guy in the dress is a beauty;
           E7                         F#7
Go all the way, I swear you never can tell.
C'mon honey and pull up your socks.

Chorus 3:

                B7                     F#7
We're all going down, down, down, down-town,
            B7         E7                B7    F#7  B7
We're going down, down-town, we're going down, down-town.

Solo:

B7  F#7  B7, E7  B7, F#7  B7

Chorus 4:

                B7                     F#7
We're all going down, down, down, down-town,
            B7         E7                B7    F#7  B7
We're going down, down-town, we're going down, down-town.
