I Hope That I Don't Fall in Love With You

Year: 1973 - Album: Closing Time

(Tom Waits)

	         D                 G                 Em7/A   A  (walk up to D)    
Well, I hope that I don't fall in love with you    
      D           G                 Em7/A   A (walk up to D)   
'Cause falling in love just makes me blue.    
         G               D/F#             G/E               D    
Well, the music plays and you display your heart for me to see.    
  G              D/F#              G/E             Em7/A   
I had a beer and now I hear you calling out to me,    
      D                G       Em7/A         D    
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you.    
    
        D                 G                 Em7/A   A  (walk up to D)    
Now the room is crowded, people's everywhere    
      D           G                 Em7/A   A (walk up to D)   
And I wonder, should I offer you a chair?    
        G                 D/F#               
Well, if you sit down with this old clown,    
     G/E                  D    
he'll take that frown and break it.    
   G              D/F#              G/E             Em7/A   
Before the evening's gone away I think that we could make it,    
  D                G       Em7/A         D    
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you.    
    
    D                 G                 Em7/A   A  (walk up to D)    
Now the night does funny things inside a man.    
           D           G                 Em7/A   A (walk up to D)   
These old tomcat feelings you don't understand.    
   G               D/F#             G/E               D    
I turn around and look at you, you light a cigarette.    
   G               D/F#             G/E               Em7/A    
I wish I had the guts to bum one, but we've never met,    
   D                G       Em7/A         D    
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you.    
    

  D                 G                 Em7/A   A  (walk up to D)    
I can see that you are lonesome just like me,    
    D                 G                 Em7/A   A  (walk up to D)    
And I'm feeling like you'd like some company.    
   G               D/F#             G/E               D    
Well, I turn around to look at you and you look back at me.    
   G               D/F#                  
The guy you're with, he's up and split,     
 G/E               Em7/A    
the chair next to you's free    
   D                G       Em7/A         D    
And I hope that you don't fall in love with me.   
  

   D                 G                 Em7/A   A  (walk up to D)    
Now it's closing time, the music's fading out.    
  D                 G                 Em7/A   A  (walk up to D)    
Last call for drinks, I'll have another stout.    
   G               D/F#             G/E               D    
I turn around to look at you—you're nowhere to be found.    
   G                    D/F#                                     
I search the place for your lost face—    
  G/E              Em7/A     
guess I'll have another round.    
   D                G       Em7/A         D    
And I think that I just fell in love with you.
