Whistle Down The Wind - Tom Waits

Just been saying that I need to get working on more of the songs from the fantastic Tom Waits 'Orphans' ( Bawlers, Brawlers and Bastards ) Triple-CD, but I received a request for "Whistle Down The Wind" from the earlier (1994) "Bone Machine". I'd forgotten how good this album was, so I've been catching up.

I've worked out my playable version of the chords and lyrics to "Whistle Down The Wind", and added them to my Tom Waits page. It's a typical Tom ballad, and with my basic guitar chords you can just get away with it, though it's pretty much a piano song. I hope you'll give it a go, see how you like it.
