Mr. Tambourine Man by Bob Dylan, orig. on Bringing It All Back Home

tuning: standard
capo: 2 (pretty sure, it might actually be 3, but I play it on 2 so I can use my E harmonica)

G        A               D               G
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
        D                G     Em        A7 (A7sus A7)
Iím not sleepy and there is no place Iím going to
G        A               D               G
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
       D             G       Em        A7        D (Dsus D)                 
In the jingle jangle morning Iíll come followiní you

         G                  A          D             G
Though I know that eveninís empire has returned into sand
D                G
Vanished from my hand, 
        D               G         Em        A7 (A7sus A7)
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
   G           A            D             G
My weariness amazes me, Iím branded on my feet
  D              G
I have no one to meet, 
        D             G            Em       A7 (A7sus A7)
And the ancient empty streetís too dead for dreaming

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
Iím not sleepy and there is no place Iím going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning Iíll come followiní you

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirliní ship
My senses have been stripped, my hands canít feel to grip
My toes too numb to step
Wait only for my boot heels to be wanderiní
Iím ready to go anywhere, Iím ready for to fade
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way
I promise to go under it

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
Iím not sleepy and there is no place Iím going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning Iíll come followiní you

Though you might hear laughiní, spinniní, swinginí madly across the sun
Itís not aimed at anyone, itís just escapiní on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences faciní
And if you hear vague traces of skippiní reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time, itís just a ragged clown behind
I wouldnít pay it any mind
Itís just a shadow youíre seeiní that heís chasing

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
Iím not sleepy and there is no place Iím going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning Iíll come followiní you

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

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
Iím not sleepy and there is no place Iím going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning Iíll come followiní you
