"Blue Skies" as written by and Charles Fink....
Blue skies over my head
Give me another reason to get out of bed
And blue skies shine on my face
Give me another woman to take her place

Ain't got no money, cupboards are bare
No cigarettes and the kids got nothing to wear
She walked out without a word
Now the only sound left is the morning bird
singing ...

Blue skies over my head
Give me another reason to get out of bed
And blue skies shine on my face
Give me another woman to take her place

Blue skies over my head
Give me another reason to get out of bed
And blue skies shine on my face
Give me another woman to take her place
Give me another woman to take her place

    General CommentThis is one of the most touching songs I've ever heard by Tom Waits, and I've heard quite a few by now. The way he sings it, the way he plays the guitar, the way it is recorded... awesome.

    General CommentA well-played, heartfelt song from the Early Years album Vol. 2.

    Another great version is the wonderfully orchestrated piece on the "Tales from the Underground" album. Check that one out on YouTube.

    Here is the second verse from the ladder version:

    "That woman stuck by through thick and through thin,
    I was cold and hungry when she smiled and let me in,
    But she wanted those fine things and those nights on the town,
    Well it looks to me, like she let me down"

    General CommentI love this song. It's by far one of my most favorite tracks by him. It's so simple and heartfelt.
