In the Neighbourhood

Song Author Tom Waits Lyrics by: Tom Waits Performer: Tom Waits Submitted by: Karlinn
Well the [D]eggs chase the [G]bacon
[D]round the fryin' [G]pan  
and the [D]whinin' dog [Bm]pidgeons
by the [Em]steeple bell [A7]rope   
and the [D]dogs tipped
the [G]garbage pails [D]over last [G]night
and there's [D]always
con[Bm]struction work [Em]bothering [A7]you   

In the [D]neighbor[G]hood
In the [D]neighbor[G]hood
In the [D]neigh[A7]bor   [D]hood

[D]Friday's a [G]funeral and [D]Saturday's a [G]bride
[D]Sey's got a [Bm]pistol on the [Em]register [A7]side   
and the [D]goddamn del[G]ivery trucks
they [D]make to much [G]noise
and we [D]don't get our [Bm]butter
de[Em]livererd no [A7]more   

In the [D]neighbor[G]hood
In the [D]neighbor[G]hood
In the [D]neigh[A7]bor   [D]hood

Well [D]big Mambo's [G]kicking his [D]old grey [G]hound
and the [D]kids can't get [Bm]ice cream
'cause the [Em]market burned [A7]down   
and the [D]newspaper [G]sleeping bags [D]blow down the [G]lane
and the [D]goddamn [Bm]flatbed's got me [Em]pinned in [A7]again

In the [D]neighbor[G]hood
In the [D]neighbor[G]hood
In the [D]neigh[A7]bor   [D]hood

There's a [D]couple Filipino [G]girl's
[D]gigglin' by the [G]church
and the [D]window is [Bm]busted
and the [Em]landlord ain't [A7]home   
and [D]Butch joined the [G]army yea
[D]that's where he's [G]been
and the [D]jackhammer's [Bm]diggin' up
the [Em]sidewalks [A7]again

In the [D]neighbor[G]hood
In the [D]neighbor[G]hood
In the [D]neigh[A7]bor   [D]hood

Well the eggs chase the bacon
round the fryin' pan
and the whinin' dog pidgeons
by the steeple bell rope
and the dogs tipped
the garbage pails over last night
and there's always
construction work bothering you

In the neighborhood
In the neighborhood
In the neighborhood

Friday's a funeral and Saturday's a bride
Sey's got a pistol on the register side
and the goddamn delivery trucks
they make to much noise
and we don't get our butter
delivererd no more

In the neighborhood
In the neighborhood
In the neighborhood

Well big Mambo's kicking his old grey hound
and the kids can't get ice cream
'cause the market burned down
and the newspaper sleeping bags blow down the lane
and the goddamn flatbed's got me pinned in again

In the neighborhood
In the neighborhood
In the neighborhood

There's a couple Filipino girl's
gigglin' by the church
and the window is busted
and the landlord ain't home
and Butch joined the army yea
that's where he's been
and the jackhammer's diggin' up
the sidewalks again

In the neighborhood
In the neighborhood
In the neighborhood
