...VIRGINIA AVENUE... by Tom Waits
---------------------.............

*from 'Closing Time' (1973)*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: Fm)


Intro:

Em  A7 (x6)

Verse 1:

          Em         A7            Em   A7
Well, I'm walking on down Virginia Aven-ue,
Em                  A7              Em7      A7
 Trying to find somebody to tell my troubles to.
A7                D7                      A7       D7
 Harold's club is closing and everybody's going on home;
G7                    B7
 What's a poor boy to do?

Verse 2:

                 Em           A7             Em          A7
I'll just get on back into my short; make it back to the fort,
Em                 A7            Em           A7
 Sleep off all the crazy lizards inside of my brain.
A7                 D7                 A7          D7
 There's got to be some place, that's better than this,
     G7                               B7
This life I'm leading's driving me in-sane.
                         Em        A7
And let me tell you, I'm dreaming...

Solo:

Em  A7 (x3)
A7  D7 (x2)
G7, B7

(B7)
 Let me tell you that...

Verse 3:

    Em              A7             Em              A7
I'm dreaming to the twilight; this town has got me down.
Em                 A7                    Em            A7
 I've seen all the highlights, I've been walking all a-round.
A7              D7         A7               D7
 I won't make a fuss; I'll take a Greyhound bus,
G7                        B7
 Carry me away from here; tell me; what have I got to lose?

Verse 4:

         Em         A7            Em   A7
'Cos I'm walking on down Columbus Aven-ue,
    Em           A7                 Em         A7
The bars are all closing, 'cos it's quarter to two.
A7            D7               A7             D7
 Every town I go to, is like a lock without a key,
G7                                     B7
 The blues I leave behind are catching up on me. Let me tell you;

Coda:

                    Em    A7                      Em  A7
They're catching up on me, they're catching up on me.
               Em  A7              Em  A7
Catching up on me,  catching up on me,
                B7  A7  G, Em
Catching up on...
