Warm Beer and Cold Women--Tom Waits
from Nighthawks at the Diner
the song is in 3/4 time

Intro:  Ebmaj9  |  Cm7  |  F9  |  Bb  | single notes Bb-C-D

VERSE 1:
Ebmaj9             Cm7    F9
Warm beer and cold women, I just don't fit in
Bb
Every Joint I stumbled into tonight
Eb                         s.n. Bb-C-D  
That's just how it's been.
          Eb          Cm7
All these double knit strangers with
F9                Bb
Gin and vermouth, and recycled stories
       Eb                s.n. Eb-F-G
In the naugahyde booths.
         Ab       Bb       Emaj9       Cm7     
With the platinum blondes, and tobacco brunettes,
F9
I'll be drinkin to forget you,
Bb        Eb                 s.n. Eb-F-G  
I'll lite another cigarette.
        Ab             Bb          Emaj9  Cm7 
And the band's playin' something by Tammy Wynette,
F9                    Bb   Eb     s.n. Bb-C-D   
And the drinks are on me tonight.

VERSE 2:

All my conversations I'll just be talkin' about you baby
Borin' some sailor as I try to get through.
I just want him to listen, that's all you have to do,
He said I'm better off without you,
Till I showed him my tattoo
Now the moon's rising, ain't no time to lose,
Time to get down to drinking,
Tell the band to play the blues.
And the drinks are on me, I'll buy another round,
At the last ditch attempt saloon.

SAX SOLO (over the chords of an entire verse)

VERSE 3:  Same as verse 1, except for the following lines.
..."receding hairlines" (instead of recycled stories)
..."I lite a menthol cigarette
    And the band's playin' something by Johnny Barnett
    At the last ditch attempt saloon"  

NOTES:
On the single notes I usually play thirds to give it a better
sound.  For instance, play the Bb-C-D with the left hand on the
piano, and then an octave higher with the right hand play D-Eb-F.
The same can be done for the notes leading to the Ab chord.  Also,
it seems as if he is riding on a G note a lot, so a Bb(add 6th)
could be played in place of the Bb chord.

Sure the chords would follow over each lyric. With my memory and with both hands on the piano, I don't know how I'd play this...unless I print them out and write them in myself. I use the guitar archive on my ipad, what an inconvenience this tab is for me. I tried to post my own with it complete, but alas...it's too damn similar.

I'm proud of the work here, I just wish others could update it.

This is about a um...I'd kinda reached the end of an emotional cul-de-sac one particular evening um.
It's a strange sort of evening, I ending up at a little fine old place called 'The Three little Pigs'.
Well I was staring at the beer nuts and the swizzle sticks and the,
the three little pigs and I was getting a lot of visual and verbal insubordination
from a double knit character in the corner.
