 I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You  -  Tom Waits
 from the album 'Closing Time' (1973).
 
 This was recently requested, so here it goes. It's not 100% accurate, but this should get you going. The lyrics were already downloaded by Johan Kristian Sveen  in the 'nevada archives', but I am sure he doesn't mind me using it here ;-). However, I adapted some of the chords.

 This fingerpicking pattern is continued through the whole song with some small
 variations, like one or two extra notes, or 'connecting bass notes'.
 In the chorus, the chords change, but the pattern stays roughly the same, except for the 'turnaround'.
 
 
 chords during chorus:
 
 
                (or F/G ?)
  F       C        G       C        F       C        F       F/G
  music...you......heart...see,   I had...now... (see lyrics)

 lyrics:
 
 
    C                F                 F/G 
 I hope that I don't fall in love with you
       C           F                   F/G
 Cause falling in love just makes me blue
           F              C                G               C
 Well the music plays and you display your heart for me to see
   F              C              F              F/G
 I had a beer and now I hear you calling out to me
       C                 F        G        C     G
 And I hope that I don't fall in love with you.
 
 Now the room is crowded, people everywhere
 And I wonder should I offer you a chair
 Well if you sit down with this old clown,
 he'll take that frown and break it
 Before the evening's gone away, I think that we could make it
 And I hope that I don't fall in love with you
 
 Now the night does funny things inside a man
 These old tomcat feelings you don't understand
 I turn around and look at you, you light a cigarette
 Wish I had the guts to bum one, but we've never met
 And I hope that I don't fall in love with you
 
 And I can see that you are lonesome just like me
 And I'm feeling like you'd like some company
 Well I turn around to look at you, and you look back at me
 The guy you're with is up and split, the chair next to you's free
 And I hope that you don't fall in love with me
 
 Now it's closing time, the music's fading out
 Last call for drinks I'll have another stout
 I turn around and look at you, you're nowhere to be found
 I search the place for your lost face, I guess I'll have another round
 and I think that I just fell in love with you
