Song Author Tom Waits Lyrics by: Tom Waits Performer: Tom Waits Submitted by: cazteclo
[F]    [Gm7]    [F/A]    [Bb]    [F/A]    [G7]    [C7]    

[Bb]Wasted and wounded, it [F/A]ain't what the moon did
I [Gm7]got what I [C7]paid for [F]now [C7/G]    [F/A]    
[Bb]See you tomorrow, hey [F/A]Frank, can I borrow
a [G7]couple of bucks from [C7]you?   
To go [F]waltzing Ma[Gm7]tilda, [F/A]waltzing Ma[Bb]tilda
[F/A] You'll go waltzing Ma[Gm7]tilda with me [C7]    

I'm an [Bb]innocent victim of a [F/A]blinded alley
And I'm [Gm7]tired of all these s[C7]oldiers [F]here [C7/G]    [F/A]    
[Bb]No one speaks English, and [F/A]everything's broken
[G7]And my Stacys are soaking wet[C7]    
To go [F]waltzing Ma[Gm7]tilda, [F/A]waltzing Ma[Bb]tilda
[F/A] You'll go waltzing Ma[Gm7]tilda with me [C7]    

Now the d[Bb]ogs are barking and the [F/A]taxi cabs parking
A [Gm7]lot they can [C7]do for [F]me [C7/G]    [F/A]    
I [Bb]begged you to stab me, you [F/A]tore my shirt open
And I'm [G7]down on my knees[C7] tonight
Old[Bb] Bushmills I staggered, you[F/A] bury the dagger
in your [G7]silhouette window [C7]light
To go [F]waltzing Ma[Gm7]tilda, [F/A]waltzing Ma[Bb]tilda
[F/A] You'll go waltzing Ma[Gm7]tilda with me [C7]    

Now I've [Bb]lost my St. Christopher,[F/A] now that I've kissed her
and the [Gm7]one-armed [C7]bandit [F]knows [C7/G]    [F/A]    
And the m[Bb]averick Chinamen, and the [F/A]cold-blooded signs
and the [Gm7]girls down by the [C7]strip-tease shows go
[F]Waltzing Ma[Gm7]tilda, [F/A]waltzing Ma[Bb]tilda
[F/A] You'll go waltzing Ma[Gm7]tilda with me [C7]    

No, I[Bb] don't want your sympathy[F/A], the fugitives say
That the [Gm7]streets aren't for [C7]dreaming [F]now [C7/G]    [F/A]    
And [Bb]manslaughter dragnets, and the [F/A]ghosts that sell memories
They want a[Gm7] piece of the action[C7] anyhow
Go w[F]altzing Mat[Gm7]ilda, w[F/A]altzing Mat[Bb]ilda   
[F/A] You'll go waltzing Ma[Gm7]tilda with me [C7]    

And you can [Bb]ask any sailor, and the [F/A]keys from the jailer
And the [Gm7]old men in [C7]wheelchairs [F]know [C7/G]    [F/A]    
That [Bb]Matilda's the defendant, she ki[F/A]lled about a hundred
and she f[Gm7]ollows wherever [C7]you may go
[F]Waltzing Ma[Gm7]tilda, [F/A]waltzing Ma[Bb]tilda
[F/A] You'll go waltzing Ma[Gm7]tilda with me [C7]    


And it's a [Bb]battered old suitcase to a [F/A]hotel someplace
And a [Gm7]wound that will [C7]never [F]heal [C7/G]    [F/A]    
[Bb]No prima donna, the [F/A]perfume is on
An old [Gm7]shirt that is [C7]stained with [F]blood and [C7/G]whiskey [F/A]    
And good[Bb]night to the street sweepers, the [F/A]night watchmen, flame keepers
And goodnig[Gm7]ht, Matilda, t[C7]oo [F]    [Gm7]    [F/A]    

[Bb]    [F/A]    [Gm7]    [C7]    [F]    

Wasted and wounded, it ain't what the moon did
I got what I paid for now
See you tomorrow, hey Frank, can I borrow
a couple of bucks from you?
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me

I'm an innocent victim of a blinded alley
And I'm tired of all these soldiers here
No one speaks English, and everything's broken
And my Stacys are soaking wet
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me

Now the dogs are barking and the taxi cabs parking
A lot they can do for me
I begged you to stab me, you tore my shirt open
And I'm down on my knees tonight
Old Bushmills I staggered, you bury the dagger
in your silhouette window light
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me

Now I've lost my St. Christopher, now that I've kissed her
and the one-armed bandit knows
And the maverick Chinamen, and the cold-blooded signs
and the girls down by the strip-tease shows go
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me

No, I don't want your sympathy, the fugitives say
That the streets aren't for dreaming now
And manslaughter dragnets, and the ghosts that sell memories
They want a piece of the action anyhow
Go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me

And you can ask any sailor, and the keys from the jailer
And the old men in wheelchairs know
That Matilda's the defendant, she killed about a hundred
and she follows wherever you may go
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me

And it's a battered old suitcase to a hotel someplace
And a wound that will never heal
No prima donna, the perfume is on
An old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey
And goodnight to the street sweepers, the night watchmen, flame keepers
And goodnight, Matilda, too
