This is a song by Tom Waits. Norah Jones covers it…and so do I…don’t judge! You have to scroll down to the link at the bottom…still not sure how to embed the link and make it look nice.
I tried to do a nice recording of it, but that wasn’t going to happen, so this was done on the drive home from the supermarket with the A/C on, trying to change lanes, with a dozen eggs in the front passenger seat. At one point, I hit a bump and the bag of groceries in the front seat falls over…but do I stop to check it? No, I continue to sing. I’m not sure if I got all the lyrics right–they are wonderful lyrics in that Tom Waits burned-out-and-yet-gorgeous kind of way.
