Tom Waits "Walk Away" Guitar Chords and Lyrics

It will be no surprise to my regular Blog readers that I'm one of Tom Waits' biggest fans. With the possible exception of Dylan and Cohen, no-one has transformed the musical landscape over the past 40 years more than Tom Waits.

Despite the fact that there are over 60 of my chords and lyrics transcriptions of his songs on my Tom Waits song chords page, it is really difficult to break most of his songs down to simple chords and lyrics versions, because of the diversity of instruments and strange and wonderful percussive devices he uses.

But, I've promised to continue to post songs from "Orphans" ( and his other albums ), so I've just finished working out my simplified version of "Walk Away", from the "Brawlers" set.

The chords themselves are a simple combination of Am, E7 and Dm, as you can see in the song transcription below:
