Hoist that Rag

Tom Waits

Track #2 from the album Real Gone


 Main Author's Notes

Written in 2004, “Hoist That Rag” is considered to be one of Tom’s career highlights, and is regularly considered by fans to be among his greatest songs. A dark, scary and weirdly groovy song about the horrors of war, with particularly dark, even apocalyptic imagery through - “smoke is blacking out the sun, at nights I pray and clean my gun”. Waits is in top form here, but arguably the real star of the song is guitarist Marc Ribot - which plays a phenomenal, groovy, once-in-a-lifetime guitar solo that’s absolutely great in the game. So have fun with this great song.
