Intro.: (E E A A)3x B7 B7 F#m F#m 

E E A A
When she said,
E E A A E E
"Don't waste your words, they're just lies,"
A A E E A A
I cried she was deaf.
E E A A E E A A E E
And she worked on my face until breaking my eyes,
A A E E A A
Then said, "What else you got left?"
B7 B7
It was then that I got up to leave
F#m F#m
But she said, "Don't forget,
E E A A E E
Everybody must give something back
A A E E A A
For something they get."


intro
E E A A
I stood there and hummed,
E E A A E E
I tapped on her drum and asked her how come.
A A E E A A
And she buttoned her boot,
E E A A E E A A E E
And straightened her suit,
A A E E A A
Then she said, "Don't get cute."
F#m F#m
So I forced my hands in my pockets
E E A A E E
And felt with my thumbs,
E E A A E E
And gallantly handed her
A A E E A A
My very last piece of gum.

intro

E E A A
She threw me outside,
E E A A E E
I stood in the dirt where ev'ryone walked.
A A E E A A
And after finding I'd
E E A A E E A A E E
Forgotten my shirt,
A A E E A A
I went back and knocked.
B7 B7
I waited in the hallway, she went to get it,
F#m F#m
And I tried to make sense
E E A A E E
Out of that picture of you in your wheelchair
A A E E A A
That leaned up against . . .

intro

E E A A
Her Jamaican rum
E E A A E E
And when she did come, I asked her for some.
A A E E A A
She said, "No, dear."
E E A A E E A A E E
I said, "Your words aren't clear,
A A E E A A
You'd better spit out your gum."
B7 B7
She screamed till her face got so red
F#m F#m
Then she fell on the floor,
E E A A E E
And I covered her up and then
A A E E A A
Thought I'd go look through her drawer.

intro

E E A A
And, when I was through
E E A A E E
I filled up my shoe
A A E E A A
And brought it to you.
E E A A E E A A E E
And you, you took me in,
A A E E A A
You loved me then
B7 B7
You didn't waste time.
F#m F#m
And I, I never took much,
E E A A E E
I never asked for your crutch.
A A E E A A
Now don't ask for mine.

About this song

"4th Time Around" is a song by Bob Dylan on his 1966 album, Blonde on Blonde. With lyrics that contrast the mundane with the absurd, "4th Time Around" is suggestive of a young romance. The song revolves around the actions and brief spoken phrases of a man and a woman, who are presumably in the midst of a lover's quarrel. It opens with what could be interpreted as the climax of an argument "When she said/ Don't waste your words, they're just lies/ I cried she was deaf.
