Anywhere I Lay My Head
Tom Waits Lyrics

My head is spinning round
My heart is in my shoes, yeah
I went and set the Thames on fire, oh
Now I must come back down
She's laughing in her sleeve, boys
I can feel it in my bones
Oh, but anywhere, anywhere I'm gonna lay my head
Oh, I'm gonna call my home

Well, I see that the world is upside-down
Seems that my pockets were filled up with gold
And now the clouds, Well they've covered everything over
And the wind is blowing cold
Well, I don't need anybody
Because I learned, I learned to be alone
Well, I said anywhere, anywhere, anywhere I lay my head, boys
Well, I'm gonna call my home

I don't need anybody
Because I've learned to be alone
Anywhere I hang my head
I'm gonna call my home


The New Orleans funeral. First you go to the cemetery playing the mournful dirge and then you return town dancing to the jazz.


I think his 'death' is actually a really bad hangover.


Absolutely. I'm surprised so few people pick up on this.


Absolutely monumental...
This will definitely be played at my funeral

Chills and tears! Especially when on constant repeat when felt so alone&had to move from my favorite home. No words strong enough to describe this one.

This man’s music has talked me off the edge countless times. Thank you for existing Tom Waits.

Oh how I wish we had about 20 more seconds of the song before it starts fading out :)
