Poncho's Lament

Song Author Tom Waits Lyrics by: Tom Waits Performer: Tom Waits Submitted by: MagS
Well the [G]stairs sound so [D]lonely with[G]out you
[B7]And I ain't made my bed in a [C]week
Coffee stains on the [D]paper I'm [G]writing [G/F#]    [E7]    
And I'm [A7]too choked up inside to [D]speak [D7]    

And Yes, I [G]know that our [D]differences pulled us a[G]part
[B7]Never spoke a word heart to [C]heart
And I'm glad [D]that you're [G]gone [G/F#]    [E7]    
But I [A7]wish to the [D]Lord that you'd come [G]home [D]    

And I'm [G]glad [D]that you're [G]gone
[B7]Got the feeling so [C]strong
And I'm glad [D]that you're [G]gone [G/F#]    [E7]    
But I [A7]wish to the [D]Lord that you'd come [G]home [D]    

Well my [G]guitar still [D]plays your [G]favorite song
[B7]though the strings have been outta tune for some [C]time
Every time I strum a [D]chord, I [G]pray out [G/F#]to the [E7]Lord   
That you'll [A7]quit your honkey-[D]tonkin' sing my [G]song [D]    

And I'm [G]glad [D]that you're [G]gone
[B7]Got the feeling so [C]strong
Yes, I'm glad [D]that you're [G]gone [G/F#]    [E7]    
But I [A7]wish to the [D]Lord that you'd come [G]home [D]    

So I'll [G]throw another [D]log onto the [G]fire
[B7]Now, I'll admit I'm a lousy [C]liar
As the [D]coals die down and [G]flicker [G/F#]    
I [E7]hear that guitar picker
Play the [A7]song we used to [D]sing so long ag[G]o   [D]    

And I'm [G]glad [D]that you're [G]gone
[B7]Got the feeling so [C]strong
Yes, I'm glad [D]that you're [G]gone [G/F#]    [E7]    
But I [A7]wish to the [D]Lord that you'd come [G]home [D]    

And I'm [G]glad [D]that you're [G]gone
[B7]Got the feeling so [C]strong
Yes, I'm glad [D]that you're [G]gone [G/F#]    [E7]    
But I [A7]wish to the [D]Lord that you'd come [G]home [D]    

Well the stairs sound so lonely without you
And I ain't made my bed in a week
Coffee stains on the paper I'm writing
And I'm too choked up inside to speak

And Yes, I know that our differences pulled us apart
Never spoke a word heart to heart
And I'm glad that you're gone
But I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

And I'm glad that you're gone
Got the feeling so strong
And I'm glad that you're gone
But I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

Well my guitar still plays your favorite song
though the strings have been outta tune for some time
Every time I strum a chord, I pray out to the Lord
That you'll quit your honkey-tonkin' sing my song

And I'm glad that you're gone
Got the feeling so strong
Yes, I'm glad that you're gone
But I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

So I'll throw another log onto the fire
Now, I'll admit I'm a lousy liar
As the coals die down and flicker
I hear that guitar picker
Play the song we used to sing so long ago

And I'm glad that you're gone
Got the feeling so strong
Yes, I'm glad that you're gone
But I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

And I'm glad that you're gone
Got the feeling so strong
Yes, I'm glad that you're gone
But I wish to the Lord that you'd come home
