Virginia Avenue

Song Author Tom Waits Lyrics by: Tom Waits Performer: Tom Waits Submitted by: cazteclo
Well, I'm [Em]walking on [A7]down Virginia [Em]Aven-[A7]ue,   
[Em] Trying to find some[A7]body to tell my [Em7]troubles [A7]to.   
[A7] Harold's club is [D7]closing and everybody's [A7]going on [D7]home;
[G7] What's a poor boy to [B7]do?   

I'll just get on [Em]back into my [A7]short; make it [Em]back to the [A7]fort,
[Em] Sleep off all the [A7]crazy lizards [Em]inside of my [A7]brain.
[A7] There's got to be [D7]some place, that's [A7]better than [D7]this,
This [G7]life I'm leading's driving me in-[B7]sane.
And let me tell you, I'm [Em]dreaming..[A7].   

[Em]    [A7]    
[Em]    [A7]    
[Em]    [A7]    
[A7]    [D7]    
[A7]    [D7]    
[G7]    [B7]    
[B7] Let me tell you that
I'm [Em]dreaming to the [A7]twilight; this [Em]town has got me [A7]down.
[Em] I've seen all the [A7]highlights, I've been [Em]walking all a-[A7]round.
[A7] I won't make a [D7]fuss; I'll [A7]take a Greyhound [D7]bus,   
[G7] Carry me away from here; [B7]tell me; what have I got to lose?

'Cos I'm [Em]walking on [A7]down Columbus [Em]Aven-[A7]ue,   
The [Em]bars are all [A7]closing, 'cos it's [Em]quarter to [A7]two.   
[A7] Every town I [D7]go to, is like a [A7]lock without a [D7]key,   
[G7] The blues I leave behind are catching [B7]up on me. Let me tell you;

They're catching up [Em]on me,[A7]    
They're catching up on [Em]me.    [A7]    
Catching up on [Em]me,    [A7]    
Catching up on [Em]me,    [A7]    
Catching up on..[B7].    [A7]    [G]    [Em]    

Well, I'm walking on down Virginia Aven-ue,
Trying to find somebody to tell my troubles to.
Harold's club is closing and everybody's going on home;
What's a poor boy to do?

I'll just get on back into my short; make it back to the fort,
Sleep off all the crazy lizards inside of my brain.
There's got to be some place, that's better than this,
This life I'm leading's driving me in-sane.
And let me tell you, I'm dreaming...







Let me tell you that
I'm dreaming to the twilight; this town has got me down.
I've seen all the highlights, I've been walking all a-round.
I won't make a fuss; I'll take a Greyhound bus,
Carry me away from here; tell me; what have I got to lose?

'Cos I'm walking on down Columbus Aven-ue,
The bars are all closing, 'cos it's quarter to two.
Every town I go to, is like a lock without a key,
The blues I leave behind are catching up on me. Let me tell you;

They're catching up on me,
They're catching up on me.
Catching up on me,
Catching up on me,
Catching up on...
