New Coat of Paint
Tom Waits Lyrics


Let's put a new coat of paint
On this lonesome old town
Set 'em up, we'll be knockin' 'em down
You wear a dress
Baby I'll a tie
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon
In that burgundy sky

All our scribbled love dreams are lost or thrown away
Here amidst the shuffle of an overflowin' day
Our love needs a transfusion let's shoot it full of wine
Fishin' for a good time starts with throwin' in your line.

So let's put a new coat of paint
On this lonesome old town
Set em' up, set em' up we'll be knockin' 'em down
You wear a dress baby
I'll wear a tie
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon
In that burgundy sky

Set 'em up, we'll be knockin' em down
You wear a dress, baby, I'll wear a tie
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon in that burgundy sky

All our scribbled love dreams, lost or thrown away
Here amidst the shuffle of an overflowin' day
Our love needs a transfusion, so let's shoot it full of wine
Fishin' for a good time starts with throwin' in your line

So, let's put a new coat of paint, on this lonesome old town
Set 'em up, set 'em up, we'll be knockin' em down
You wear a dress, baby, I'll wear a tie
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon in that burgundy sky

Let's put a new coat of paint on this lonesome old town
Set 'em up, we'll be knockin' em down.
You wear a dress, baby, and I'll wear a tie.
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon in that burgundy sky

All your scribbled lovedreams, are lost or thrown away,
Here amidst the shuffle of an overflowing day
Our love needs a transfusion so let's shoot it full of wine
Fishin' for a good time starts with throwin'in your line.

Tom Waits is, in my opinion, one of the greatest songwriters who ever lived. He often champions the down and out every man trying to figure out his place in the world. He sings about men who seem to have an honest awareness of their insignificance, and own it with a kind of complexed nobility. He makes me realize that there is great poetry in everyone’s personal story if you actually take the time to listen to yourself tell it.

I forgot just how uptown Tom Waits could be. This is the kind of song you want to hear in a jazz club and never do. Neon bar lights, cigarette smoke, and steam from manhole covers. It's all in there.

Casual Bier

way more blues than jazz imo

OMEGA 20Z

And a shiny glass of the good Old Bearded Man Whiskey to share with someone special!.

@khvost jazz gaziness freedom and all that do not go well with snobbery which in my mind boredom of mind.
