 (Truly one of his best, this song has a real organic quality thanks in
  part to Daniel Lanois's production. All kinds of stuff weaving and 
  oozing in the background. This version is just the basic chords, listen
  to the track to figure out the rest.)

 (Cm - Bb11)
Yeah, I can see it now, the red-neon shivered in the heat.

I was feeling like a stranger, in a strange land,

You know, where people play games with the night.
 (Fm - Eb11)
God, it was to hot to sleep,so I followed the sound of a juke-box,

Comin' from up the levee.
 (Cm - Bb11)
All of the sudden I could hear the sound of some-one whistlin',

From right behind me,  I turn around and she said;
 (Fm - Eb11)
"Why do you always end up down at Nick's Cafe."
                                               g
I said; "Oh, I don't know,  the wind just kinda pushed me this way."
Cm
She said; "Hang the rich."
 Fm         Bb           eb        g            Fm     Bb
  Catch the Blue Train, place it's never been before, look for me,
  eb                Cm            eb                 Cm
  Somewhere down the crazy river, somewhere down the crazy river,
 Fm            Bb            eb            g      Fm   Bb 
  Oooh, catch the Blue Train, all the way to Kokomo,  you can find me,
  eb                 Cm            eb                Cm       
  Somewhere down the crazy river, somewhere down the crazy river.

 (Cm - Bb11)
Take a picture of this; fields are empty, abandoned '59 Chevy,

Layin' in the back seat, listening to "Little Willy John".
 (Fm -Eb11)
Yeah, that's when time stood still,       you know,
                                                g
I think I'm gonna go down to Madame X...let her read my mind.
 Cm
She said; "That voodoo stuff, don't do nothin' for me."
 Fm    Bb              eb        Cm
  I'm a man, with a,  clear destination,
 Fm     Bb             eb        Cm
  I'm a man, with a,  broad imagination.
 Fm         Bb        eb       Cm
  You fog the mind,   you stir the soul.
  g                         G7
  I can't find,      no control........whoa..oh,

               (Chorus-as above)
 (Cm - Bb11)
Wait, did you hear that?

Aah, this is sure stirring up some ghosts for me.

She said; "There's one thing you gotta learn...is not to be afraid of it."
 (Fm - Eb11)
I said; "No, I like it, it's good."
                                               g
She said; "You like it now, but you'll learn to love it later."
 (Cm - Bb11)
  I've been spellbound, falling in trances,

  I've been spellbound, falling in trances,

  Give me the shivers,       give me the shivers,

  Somewhere down the crazy river,     (gradually fade out)
