C C Csus4 Csus4 C C Csus4 Csus4 C C Csus4 Csus4 C C Csus4 Csus4


C C Dm Dm
Once upon a time you dressed so fine
Em Em F F G G
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?
C C Dm Dm
People'd call, say, "Beware doll,
Em Em F F G G
you're bound to fall" You thought they were all kiddin' you

F F G G
You used to laugh about
F F G G
Everybody that was hangin' out

F F Em Em Dm Dm C C
Now you don't talk so loud
F F Em Em Dm Dm C C
Now you don't seem so proud

F F C C G G
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.

C C F F G G
How does it feel
C C F F G G
How does it feel
C C F F G G
To be without a home
C C F F G G
Like a complete unknown
C C F F G G
Like a rolling stone

C C F F G G


C C Dm Dm Em Em
Aww, You've gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely
F F G G
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
C C Dm Dm Em Em
Nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street
F F G G
And now you're gonna have to get used to it

F F G G
You said you'd never compromise
F F G G
With the mystery tramp, but now you realize

F F Em Em Dm Dm C C
He's not selling any alibis
F F Em Em Dm Dm C C
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes

F F C C G G
And say do you want to make a deal?

C C F F G G
How does it feel
C C F F G G
How does it feel
C C F F G G
To be on your own
C C F F G G
With no direction home
C C F F G G
Like a complete unknown
C C F F G G
Like a rolling stone

C C F F G G


C C Dm Dm Em Em
Aww, You never turned around to see the frowns
F F G G
On the jugglers and the clowns when they all did tricks for you
C C Dm Dm
You never understood that it ain't no good
Em Em F F G G
You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you

F F G G
You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
F F G G
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat

F F Em Em Dm Dm C C
Ain't it hard when you discover that
F F Em Em Dm Dm C C
He really wasn't where it's at
F F C C G G
After he took from you everything he could steal.

C C F F G G
How does it feel
C C F F G G
How does it feel
C C F F G G
To be on your own
C C F F G G
With no direction home
C C F F G G
Like a complete unknown
C C F F G G
Like a rolling stone

C C F F G G


C C Dm Dm Em Em
Aww, Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
F F G G
They're all drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made
C C Dm Dm Em Em
Exchanging all precious gifts
F F G G
But you'd better take your diamond ring, you'd better pawn it babe

F F G G
You used to be so amused
F F G G
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used

F F Em Em Dm Dm C C
Go to him now, he calls you, you can't refuse
F F Em Em Dm Dm C C
When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose
F F C C G G
You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal.

C C F F G G
How does it feel
C C F F G G
How does it feel
C C F F G G
To be on your own
C C F F G G
With no direction home
C C F F G G
Like a complete unknown
C C F F G G
Like a rolling stone

C C F F G G

About this song

Spearheading Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited (1965), Like A Rolling Stone tells a surrealistic fairytale of a girl falling from high society. Notable not only because of the new rock sound, but also because of its length (clocking in at just over 6 minutes, it was an extremely long track for the time), it became Dylan's biggest hit up till then, reaching #2 in the UK Pop Singles Charts. It quickly became a live favourite, most memorably perhaps as a closer for most of Dylan's 1966 World Tour (documented briliantly in The Bootleg Series, Volume 4: Live 1966: The "Royal Albert Hall" ).
