  WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND  -  TOM WAITS

[Verse 1]
D      A             D         G
I grew up here now all of my life
        Em       A         D  G D
But I dreamed someday I'd go
            D         A        D      G  
Where the blue-eyed girls and red guitars and
      Em     A     D   G D
The naked rivers flow

[Chorus]
G 
I'm not all I thought I'd be
    F#m            D
I always stayed around
  G        
I've been as far as Mercy and Grand
  Em            A7
Frozen to the ground

[Verse 2]
D        A                  D           G
I can't stay here and I'm scared to leave
     Em       A         D     
Just kiss me once and then
      D      A      D        G
I'll go to hell, I might as well
       Em      A        D    G D
Be whistlin' down the wind

[Break]
    G               D
The bus is at the corner
    G             D
The clock on the wall
  G            F#m
Broken down windmill
         A
There's no wind at all
      G             D
I've yelled and I cursed
      G              D
If I stay here I'll rust
      G            Bm
I'm stuck like a shipwreck
  A
Out here in the dust

[Instrumental Break]
D A D G Em A D D A D G Em A D G D

[Verse 3]
     D      A              D        G
The sky is red and the world's on fire
          Em      A           D    
And the corn is taller than me
     D      A         D        G
The dog is tied to a wagon of rain
         Em         A          D   G D
And the road is as wet as the sea

[Chorus 2]
      G
And sometimes the music from a dance
       F#m                D
Will carry across the plains
          G 
And the places that I'm dreaming of
          Em           A7
Do they dream only of me?

[Verse 4]
            D      A          D      G
There are places where they never sleep
          Em      A     D     
And the circus never ends
   D       A        D           G
So I will take the Marleybone coach

         Em       A        D     G D
And be whistling down the wind
   D       A       D            G
so I will take the Marleybone coach
Em         A         D    G   D
Whistling down the wind
