    Tom Waits – “Goin’ Out West”

    Documentary Now! is a miracle of a TV show. I still can’t quite believe it exists, let alone is now on the cusp of airing a third season. The IFC series was created by Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, and Rhys Thomas as a love letter of sorts to the documentary genre, as each episode finds actors putting a comedy spin on a famous documentary.

    “Goin’ Out West” by Tom Waits from the album ‘Bone Machine,’ 1992
    Directed by Jesse Dylan

    Goin’ Out West

    Well I’m goin’ out west
    Where the wind blows tall
    ‘Cause Tony Franciosa
    Used to date my ma
    They got some money out there
    They’re giving it away
    I’m gonna do what I want
    Do what I want
    And I’m gonna get paid

    Little brown sausages

    Lying in the sand
    I ain’t no etra baby
    I’m a leading man
    Well my parole officer
    Will be proud of me
    With my Olds 88
    And the devil on a leash
    My Olds 88
    And the devil on a leash

    Well I know karate, Voodoo to

    I’m gonna make myself available to you
    I don’t need no make up
    I got real scars
    I got hair on my chest
    I look good without a shirt

    Well I don’t lose my composure
    In a high speed chase
    Well my friends think I’m ugly
    I got a masculine face
    I got some dragstrip courage
    I can really drive a bed
    I’m gonna change my name
    To Hannibal or maybe
    Just Rex
    Change my name to Hannibal
    Or maybe just Rex

    I’m gonna drive all night
    Take some speed
    I’m gonna wait for the sun
    To shine down on me
    I cut a hole in my roof
    In the shape of a heart

    And I’m goin’ out west
    Where they’ll appreciate me
    Goin’ out west
    Goin’ out west
