Judy Collins - Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues

CAPO: 4th Fret


[Verse 1]
                                    C                         G
When you're lost in the rain, in Juarez, and it's Easter time too
                                 C                     G
When your gravity fails, and negativity don't pull you through
      C                                                 G
Don't put on any airs when you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
              D                           C                         G
They got some hungry women there and they really make a mess out of you

[Verse 2]
                        C                        G
If you see Saint Annie, please tell her thanks a lot
                 C                          G
I cannot move my fingers, they are all in a knot
           C                                           G
I  haven't got the strength to get up and take another shot
       D                              C                        G
And my best friend, the doctor, won't even say what it is I've got

[Verse 3]
                   C                                G
Sweet Melinda, the peasants call her the goddess of gloom
                                   C                     G
She speaks good English, and she invites you up into her room
           C                                        G
And you're so kind and careful not to go to her too soon
        D                     C                         G
And she takes your voice, and leaves you howling at the moon

[Verse 4]
                           C                       G
Up on housing project hill, it's either fortune or fame

You can pick one or the other
       C                                     G
Though neither of them ought to be what they claim
              C                                                          G
And if you're looking to get silly, you better go back to from where you came
           D                        C                    G
'Cause the cops don't need you, and man, they expect the same

[Verse 5]
                         C                          G
Now all the authorities, they just stand around and boast
                                     C                     G
How they blackmailed the sergeant at arms into leaving his post
               C                                     G
And picking up Angel, who just arrived here from the coast
              D                  C                        G
Who looked so fine at first, but left looking just like a ghost

[Verse 6]
                               C                   G
I started out on burgundy, but soon hit the harder stuff
                              C                         G
Everybody said they'd stand behind me when the game got rough
        C                                               G
But the joke was one me, there was nobody there to even bluff
          D                        C                    G
I'm going back to New York City, I do believe I've had enough
