I Give You...(drumroll)

Ruby's Arms (Tom Waits)
----------------------

F C E7 Am
I will leave behind all of my clothes
F C Dm7 G7
I wore when I was with you
F C E7 Am
All I need's my railroad boots
F C Dm7 G7
And my leather jacket
F C E7 Am
As I say goodbye to Ruby's Arms
F C Dm7 G7
Although my heart is breaking
F C E7 Am
I will steal away out through your blinds
F C Dm7 G7
For soon you will be waking
----
G C A Dm
The morning light has washed your face
G7 C Dm7 G7sus4 G7
And everything is turning blue now
G C A Dm
Hold on to your pillow case
G7 C Dm7 G7sus4 G7
There's nothing I can do now
-----
F C E7 Am
As I say goodbye to Ruby's Arms
F C Dm7 G7
You'll find another soldier
F C E7 Am
And I swear to God by christmas time
F C Dm7 G7
There'll be someone else to hold you
---
G C A Dm
The only thing I'm taking is
G7 C Dm7 G7sus4 G7
The scarf off of your clothes line
G C A Dm
I'll hurry past your chest of drawers
G7 C Dm7 G7sus4 G7
And your broken wind chimes
----
F C E7 Am
As I say goodbye, I'll say goodbye
Dm7 G7sus4 F C
Say goodbye to Ruby's Arms
---
|E7 Am|F C|Dm7 G7|

----
F C E7 Am
I will feel my way down the darkened hall
F C Dm7 G7
Out into the morning
F C E7 Am
The Hoboes at the freightyards
F C Dm7 G7
Have kept their fires burning
F C E7 Am
Jesus Christ this God damn rain
F C E7 Am
Will someone put me on a train
F C E7 Am
I'll never kiss your lips again
Dm7 G7sus4 G7
Or break your heart
F C E7 Am
As I say goodbye I'll say goodbye
Dm7 G7sus4 F C
Say goodbye to Ruby's Arms

|E7 Am|F C|Dm7 G7|C
