C C
The guilty undertaker sighs,
Em Em
The lonesome organ grinder cries,
Am Am G G
The silver saxophones say I should refuse you.
F F
The cracked bells and washed-out horns
G G*
Blow into my face with scorn,
Em Em
But it's not that way,
G G
I wasn't born to lose you.


C C Em Em
I want you, I want you,
Am Am G G
I want you so bad,
C C Em Em Am Am G G
Honey, I want you.

C C
The drunken politician leaps
Em Em
Upon the street where mothers weep
Am Am
And the saviors who are fast asleep,
G G
They wait for you.
F F
And I wait for them to interrupt
G G*
Me drinkin' from that broken cup
Em Em
And ask me to
G G
Open up the gate for you.


C C Em Em
I want you, I want you,
Am Am G G
I want you so bad,
C C Em Em Am Am G G
Honey, I want you.

Em Em
Now all my fathers, they've gone down,
Am Am
True love they've been without it.
Em Em
But all their daughters put me down
F F G G
'Cause I don't think about it.

C C
Well, I return to the Queen of Spades
Em Em
And talk with my chambermaid.
Am Am
She knows that I'm not afraid
G G
To look at her
F F
She is good to me
G G*
And there's nothing she doesn't see.
Em Em
She knows where I'd like to be
G G
But it doesn't matter.


C C Em Em
I want you, I want you,
Am Am G G
I want you so bad
C C Em Em Am Am G G
Honey, I want you.

C C
Now your dancing child with his Chinese suit,
Em Em
He spoke to me, I took his flute.
Am Am
No, I wasn't very cute to him,
G G
Was I?
F F
But I did it, though, because he lied
G G*
Because he took you for a ride
Em Em
And because tine was on his side
G G
And because I...


C C Em Em
I want you, I want you,
Am Am G G
I want you so bad
C C Em Em Am Am G G
Honey, I want you.

About this song

"I Want You" is a 1966 song recorded by Bob Dylan which appeared on the album Blonde on Blonde. It was also released as a single with a live version of "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" in June, reaching number twenty on the Billboard Hot 100 and number sixteen in the UK. A live version later appeared on the album, Dylan and the Dead, a collaboration with the Grateful Dead. It has been argued that the song is about Anita Pallenberg, at the time the girlfriend of Brian Jones, because of the line "Now your dancing child with his chinese suit/ He spoke to me, I took his flute.
