Cold Water
Tom Waits

Well, I woke up this morning
With the cold water (3)
Woke up this morning
With the cold water (2)
With the cold

Police at the station and (well)
Don't look friendly (2)
Police at the station
(And) they don't look friendly (2)
They don't

Blind or crippled, sharp or dull
I'm reading the Bible by a 40 watt bulb
What price freedom dirt is my rug
Well, I sleep like a baby with the snakes and the bugs

Well the store are open but (weel)
I ain't got no money (3)
Stores are open but (well)
I ain't got no money (2)
Well, I ain't

Found an old dog and he
Seems to like me (3)
Found an old dog and he
Seems to like me (2)
Well, he seems

Seen them fellows with the card board signs
Scrapping up a little money to buy a bottle of wine
Pregnant women and the Vietnam vets
I saw beggin' on the freeway 'bout as hard as it gets

Well, I slept in the graveyard
(It was) cool and still (3)
Well, I slept in the graveyard
(It was) cool and still (2)

Slept all night in the cedar grove
I was born to ramble, born to rove
Some men are searchin' for the Holy Grail
But there ain't nothing sweeter than ridin' the rails

I look 47 but I'm 24
Well the shooed me away from here the time before
Turned them backs and they locked their doors
I'm watching TV in the window of a furniture store

Well, I woke up this morning
With the cold water (3)
Woke up this morning
With the cold water (2)
With the cold
