Little Drop of Poison - Tom Waits

I have been remiss in not posting any songs by my favourite arist of late.

This is another song from the amazing triple CD "Orphans - Bawlers, Brawlers and Bastards" by the indescribably brilliant Tom Waits.

This time round I've worked out my interpretation of the wonderfully quirky "Little Drop of Poison", from the "Bawlers" CD, this song also featured in the soundtrack of "Shrek 2"

You can find my version of the chords and lyrics to "Little Drop of Poison" at the link below:

Thanks so much for taking the time to do this. I don't want to sound needy, but could you do "Tell It To Me" or that Kurt Weill song "What Keeps Mankind Alive"?

It's been harder than expected to find chords for the Orphans songs online. Thanks again.

I preffer to play it with capo on 3rd fret, i think it sounds better!
