Bob Dylan Youre Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go tab
Highlighted Show chord diagrams
This is track five on "Blood on the Tracks", Bob Dylan's 1974 album. It's also on Shawn Colvin's album "Cover Girl". I play it in a much slower tempo than the Bob Dylan version, and slightly slower than Shawn Colvin's, and I don't fingerpick. Just strum the chords on an acoustic guitar to the rhythm of the song, it should work out. Then for the last line of each verse, the "chorus" of the song, there's a little fill: G D e|-3-----------2----| B|-0---3----0--3----| G|-0-----------2----| D|-0-----------0----| A|-2-----------x----| E|-3-----------x----| ...when you go. When he says "Honolulu", it sounds like "Honolula", so it rhymes with "Ashtabula." A x02220 Asus4 x02230 D xx0232 (or x00232 if you want) F#m 244222 G 320003 (It's best to play this with the pinky on the high e string) A couple of the phrases here are not known to all people, so: Purple clover and Queen Anne's lace are plants common to the American northeast. Verlaine and Rimbaud were French lovers in the 19th century. Verlaine shot Rimbaud (pronounced Rim-bo) in the left wrist. Ashtabula is a port city in Ohio. That's about it.
