Mr. Tambourine Man

G G A A D D G G
Hey Mister Tambourine man play a song for me
D D G G Em Em A A
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm goin' to
G G A A D D G G
Hey Mister Tambourine man play a song for me
D D G G Em Em A A D D
In the jingle-jangle mornin' I'll come followin' you

G G A A D D G G
Though I know the evnin's empire has returned into sand
D D G G D D G G
Vanished from my hand, left me blindly here to stand
Em Em A A G G A A
But still not sleepin', My weariness amazes me I'm
D D G G D D G G
Branded on my feet, I have no one to meet
D D G G Em Em A A
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreamin'

G G A A D D G G
Hey Mister Tambourine man play a song for me
D D G G Em Em A A
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm goin' to
G G A A D D G G
Hey Mister Tambourine man play a song for me
D D G G Em Em A A D D
In the jingle-jangle mornin' I'll come followin' you

G G A A D D G G
Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship
D D G G D D G G
My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip
D D G G D D G G Em Em A A
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels to be wanderin'
G G A A D D G G
I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
D D G G D D G G
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way,
Em Em A A
I promise to go under it

G G A A D D G G
Hey Mister Tambourine man, play a song for me
D D G G Em Em A A
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
G G A A D D G G
Hey Mister Tambourine man play a song for me
D D G G Em Em A A
In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come followin' you

G G A A D D G G
Though you might hear laughin' spinnin' swingin' madly across the sun
D D G G D D G G
It's not aimed at anyone, it's just escapin' on the run
D D G G Em Em A A
And but for the sky there are no fences facin'
G G A A D D G G
And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme
D D G G D D G G
To your tambourine in time, it's just a ragged clown behind
D D G G D D G G Em Em A A
I wouldn't pay it any mind, it's just a shadow you're seein' that he's chasing

G G A A D D G G
Hey Mister Tambourine man, play a song for me
D D G G Em Em A A
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
G G A A D D Em Em
Hey Mister Tambourine man play a song for me
D D G G Em Em A A
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you

G G A A D D G G
Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind
D D G G D D G G
Down the foggy ruins of time far past the frozen leaves
D D G G D D G G
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
D D G G Em Em A A
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
G G A A D D G G
Yes to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
D D G G D D G G
Silhouetted by the sea circled by the circus sands
D D G G D D G G
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
D D G G Em Em A A
Let me forget about today until tomorrow

G G A A D D G G
Hey Mister Tambourine man play a song for me
D D G G Em Em A A
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm goin' to
G G A A D D G G
Hey Mister Tambourine man play a song for me
D D G G Em Em A A D D
In the jingle-jangle mornin' I'll come followin' you
