Stevie Wonder – Mr Tambourine Man tab

Written by Bob Dylan. This is legend, Stevie Wonder's version.

Like Glen Campbell, Stevie Wonder recorded a version of 'Mr. Tambourine Man'
sounding exactly like The Byrds' version except Stevie Wonder uses words, Glen Campbell doesn't.

D   G   A

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

         G                  A          D                 G
Though I know that evenin's empire has returned into the sand.
D                G             D               G
Vanished from my hand, left me blindly here to stand
    Em        A
but still not sleeping!
   G          A             D             G      D              G
My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet I have no one to meet.
        D             G            Em       A
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.


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


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


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