To avoid any copyright/license issues, the original song was made by Tom Waits on the album Blue Valentine (1978) .


So this little work was made back at the studio sometime during the spring, 2 am in the morning. We thought of it as a fun thing to do and we sat down and recorded it all in one take, no metronome or anything.

Occasionally, we tried retaking the whole song without the same results as this. This was a one time only influenced Tom Waits session.

It's basically me at the piano and my fellow mate singing who wishes to remain anonymous. I have had the permission to upload it from him.

To prevent comments about chords in this piece, I do know it switches from time to time to a Dm7-F/Eb-Bb9-Bb/C-C7-Bb9-
C11-F-C11-F-C11 but I didn't have the sheets with me during this take resulting in playing straight from my own memory.

The whole result was pretty satisfying even tho it's not the right chords sometimes, however, keep in mind this was done in one take 2 am in the morning.

With all that said, enjoy!
