Swordfishtrombone

Tom Waits

Track #10 from the album Swordfishtrombones


 Main Author's Notes

The almost-title track of this album tells another classic Waits story. Driven by a repeating line: “Well he came home from the war with a party in his head”, this story tells the tale of a war vet who struggles with his life after the war, eventually ended up in prison, and in the last verse Waits acknowledged the whole story might be a myth, and concludes: “If you think that you can tell a bigger tale, I swear to god you’d have to tell a lie”. Musically, the song is driven by marimba, some percussion and upright bass, each of them playing a nice role in this classic Waits song.
