Rain Dogs
Tom Waits Lyrics


Inside a broken clock
Splashing the wine
With all the Rain Dogs
Taxi, we'd rather walk
Huddle a doorway with the Rain Dogs
For I am a Rain Dog, too

Oh, how we danced and we swallowed the night
For it was all ripe for dreaming
Oh, how we danced away all of the lights
We've always been out of our minds

The Rum pours strong and thin
Beat out the dustman
With the Rain Dogs
Aboard a shipwreck train
Give my umbrella to the Rain Dogs
For I am a Rain Dog, too

Oh, how we danced with the Rose of Tralee
Her long hair black as a raven
Oh, how we danced and you whispered to me
You'll never be going back home

Oh, how we danced with the Rose of Tralee
Her long hair black as a raven
Oh, how we danced and you whispered to me
You'll never be going back home, aah

He sounded like he was 80 when he was 30. And he's only 70 now.

Have you listened to ‘Martha’ from ‘Closing Time’? He was so young yet sounds so nostalgic.

Bruce Shark

Tom Waits is a mad poet, a hustler, a hobo, a train conductor for the heartbroken.

BUNYIP Tv.

Well put,i agree.

Lorrie Mattson

Hes a damn rare gem. He doesn't need to try, he's just himself. ❤💜

@John Hesler Tom Waits is so far ahead that you can never be truly late if I may say so.

John Hesler

Troubadour for the slightly insane? I am new to this but I think I will like it whole bunches. Late starter.

'After a rain in New York all the dogs that got caught in the rain, somehow the water washed away their whole trail and they can't get back home so about 4 in the morning you see all these stranded dogs on the street and they're looking around like - won't you help me get back home, sir, please - excuse me sir - excuse me sir - can you help me find my way back home - all makes and models, the short ones, the black ones, the tall ones, the expensive ones, the long ones, the disturbed ones, they all want to get home.' - the man himself

Simone Blue

Ever the poet. <3
