Mr. Tambourine Man
Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan
Bringing It All Back Home
OK, I've moved from 1997 and Jakob Dylan of the Wallflowers
to 1965 and Jakob's father, Bob!  I knew that I had to get
some of Bob's music, so I got his Greatest Hits from Columbia
House.  This is my first song from it.

Capo 2nd INTRO: D
CHORUS Bm A D G Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me D G A I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to Bm A D G Hey Mr. Tambourine Man play a song for me D G A D In a jingle-jangle morning I'll come following you
Bm A D G Though I know that evening's empire has returned into sand D G D G A Vanished from my hand left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping Bm A D G My weariness amazes me I'm branded on my feet D G D G A I have no one to meet and the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming
Bm A D G Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship D G D G My senses have been stripped my hands can't feel to grip D G D G A My toes too numb to step wait only for my boot heels to be wanderin' Bm A D G I'm ready to go anywhere I'm ready for to fade D G D G A Into my own parade cast your dancing spell my way I promise to go under it
Though you might hear laughin' spinnin' swingin' madly across the sun It's not aimed at anyone it's just escapin' on the run And but for the sky there are no fences facing And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme To your tambourine in time it's just a ragged clown behind I wouldn't pay it any mind it's just a shadow you're seein' that he's chasing
Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind Down the foggy ruins of time far past the frozen leaves The haunted frightened trees out to the windy beach Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow Yes to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free Silhouetted by the sea circled by the circus sands With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves Let me forget about today until tomorrow
CHORUS fade out
