Tom Waits: I wish I was in New Orleans
Words and Music: Tom Waits
Album: A Japanese import - (Sorry, I can't read Katakana,
but it probably says Tom-u Waits-u)

I included a line for the beat, which in most places
is obvious, but there is one measure that has two beats
and that threw me when I went to write it down.

Figuring out the words for this one is as challenging as
the music. I left "----" in a few spots. Anyone speak Waits?

There is one chord whose correct name somewhat eludes me.
After checking with Paul Zimmerman's chord theory page on
Olga, I think it is Ebdim7, which would be Eb Gb Bbb Dbb
or Eb Gb A C.

callin me home.

And I can hear the band begin
When the Saints Go Marchin' In
By the whiskers on my chin
New Orleans I'll be there

I'll drink you under the table
---- red nose, go for a walk
the old haunts what I wants
is red beans and rice

And wear the dress I like so well
Meet me at the old saloon
Make sure there's a Dixie Moon
New Orleans I'll be there

And deal the cards, roll the dice
If it ain't that ole ---------
--------------- me and you
Sam Jones and all?????

And I wish I was in New Orleans
I can see it in my dreams
Arm in arm down Burgundy
(rit) A bottle and, my friends and me,
New Orleans I'll be there
