Depot Depot
Tom Waits Lyrics


Depot, depot, what am I doing here?
Depot, depot, what am I doing here?
I ain't coming, I ain't going
My confusion is showing
Outside the midnight wind is blowing Sixth Avenue
I'm gonna paint myself blue
At the depot

I watch the taxis pull up and idle
I can't claim title to a single memory
He offered me a key
Cause opportunity don't knock
He has no tongue and she cannot talk
You're gonna shuffle when you walk
At the depot

This peeping-Tom needs a peephole
And an uptempo song
To move me along
When I find this depot baby
I'm on a roll just like a pool ball baby
I'm gonna be there at the roll call maybe
At the depot

Outside the midnight wind is blowing Sixth Avenue
Oh, tell me what a poor boy to do
At the depot
I'm on a roll just like a pool ball baby
I'm gonna be there at the roll call maybe
At the depot
The depot

Depot, depot, what am I doing here?
I ain't coming, I ain't going

I can't claim title to a single memory
He offered me a key
'Cause opportunity don't knock
He has no tongue and she cannot talk
You're gonna shuffle when you walk
At the depot

This peeping-Tom needs a peephole
And an uptempo song
To move me along
When I find this depot baby
I'm on a roll just like a pool ball baby

Oh, tell me what a poor boy to do

I'm on a roll just like a pool ball baby
I'm gonna be there at the roll call maybe

Its been more than 13 years that I found mister Waits. Science then I woke up couple of times at the depot, an on my way to home I sang in the night streets. Couple of times I was on the wrong side of the road, Friday found me fumblin with the blues, and I had only 29 dollars ( never had an alligator purse though). It’s a good thing to live, but it is not easy. Complete artists like Tom makes you understand that you are not alone

What am I doin' here?

@davidsiuraneta we're all lost dude

I wish Tom carried on singing with more of a gentle voice like this, love his music but his immensely growling voice ruins it sometimes, believe people put up with it more than they actually like it because they don't want to say a bad word against him

Newsung Sails

That’s what I thought too, until I payed close attention to his song “Anywhere I Lay My Head”. He makes the roughness into a rich fertile lome from which a a sublime garden grows.

Tommy The Cat

I really love his growling voice, more than this one. To each his own. I loved this type of bluesy smooth jazz more than his experimental music though

Velcro

So smooth. This entire album is a total peach

Pei Mei

Love it..i guess im a drunk bum to like this.

LuzIsSpontan

@cathiefredrickson Yeah! ^ ^
