A Sight For Sore Eyes

Song Author Tom Waits Lyrics by: Tom Waits Performer: Tom Waits Submitted by: cazteclo
A sig[C]ht for sore eyes, It's a lon[F]g time no se[C]e  
Workin' h[C]ard hardly wo[Am]rkin', Hey [Dm]man you know [G]me  
[Am] Water un[C]der the bridge, Did ya s[F]ee my new c[C]ar  
Well it's bo[C]ught and it's p[Am]aid for, Parked out-s[Dm]ide of the b[G]ar  
And hey b[C]arkeep whats keeping you, K[F]eep pouring dr[C]inks
For a[C]ll these pal[Am]ookas, Hey you k[Dm]now what I th[G]inks
[Am] That we to[C]ast to the old days, And Di-M[F]ag-gio t[C]oo  
An' old Dry[C]sdales and M[Am]antle, Whitey F[Dm]ord and [G]to y[C]ou [G]    [G]    

Oh you know the o[C]l' gang ain't around, Every[F]one has left t[C]own  
'Cept for Th[C]elma 'n' Gia[Am]rdina, Said they j[Dm]ust might be do[G]wn  
[Am] Oh half dr[C]unk all the time, An' I'm a[F]ll drunk the r[C]est  
Mo[C]nks still the cha[Am]mpion, Oh but [Dm]I am t[G]he b[C]est [G]    
And hey b[C]arkeep whats keeping you, K[F]eep pouring dr[C]inks
For a[C]ll these pal[Am]ookas, Hey you k[Dm]now what I th[G]inks
[Am] That we to[C]ast to the old days, And Di-M[F]ag-gio t[C]oo  
An' old Dry[C]sdales and M[Am]antle, Whitey F[Dm]ord and [G]to y[C]ou [G]    [G]    

Guess you he[C]ard about Nash, He was ki[F]lled in a c[C]rash
Oh that m[C]ust have been [Am]two, Or three y[Dm]ears ago n[G]ow  
[Am] Yeah, he s[C]pun out and he rolled, Hit a te[F]lephone p[C]ole  
And d[C]ied with the ra[Am]dio [Dm]on [G]    
Flo she's mar[C]ried with a kid, Finally sp[F]lit up with S[C]id  
He's up no[C]rth for a ni[Am]ckles worth, For a[Dm]rmed ro[G]bbery
[Am] And I'll p[C]lay you some pinball, No you a[F]in't got a ch[C]ance
Then [C]go on o[Am]ver and, [Dm]Ask her to da[G]nce  
And hey b[C]arkeep whats keeping you, K[F]eep pouring dr[C]inks
For a[C]ll these pa[Am]lookas, Hey you [Dm]know what I th[G]inks
[Am] That we t[C]oast to the old days, And Di-M[F]ag-gio t[C]oo  
An' old Dry[C]sdales and M[Am]antle, Whitey F[Dm]ord and [G]to y[C]ou-oo-[C]o  

A sight for sore eyes, It's a long time no see
Workin' hard hardly workin', Hey man you know me
Water under the bridge, Did ya see my new car
Well it's bought and it's paid for, Parked out-side of the bar
And hey barkeep whats keeping you, Keep pouring drinks
For all these palookas, Hey you know what I thinks
That we toast to the old days, And Di-Mag-gio too
An' old Drysdales and Mantle, Whitey Ford and to you

Oh you know the ol' gang ain't around, Everyone has left town
'Cept for Thelma 'n' Giardina, Said they just might be down
Oh half drunk all the time, An' I'm all drunk the rest
Monks still the champion, Oh but I am the best
And hey barkeep whats keeping you, Keep pouring drinks
For all these palookas, Hey you know what I thinks
That we toast to the old days, And Di-Mag-gio too
An' old Drysdales and Mantle, Whitey Ford and to you

Guess you heard about Nash, He was killed in a crash
Oh that must have been two, Or three years ago now
Yeah, he spun out and he rolled, Hit a telephone pole
And died with the radio on
Flo she's married with a kid, Finally split up with Sid
He's up north for a nickles worth, For armed robbery
And I'll play you some pinball, No you ain't got a chance
Then go on over and, Ask her to dance
And hey barkeep whats keeping you, Keep pouring drinks
For all these palookas, Hey you know what I thinks
That we toast to the old days, And Di-Mag-gio too
An' old Drysdales and Mantle, Whitey Ford and to you-oo-o
