My first submission to UG!! I know this is 100% correct, the other tabs/chords seemed off a tad bit. I listened very closely to Dylan to find out what he's doing in this song. I have outlined Learning this song with 4 very important steps, read EVERYTHING to sound like Dylan does. 1). PUT A CAPO ON THE 4TH FRET!!! This song is in the key of E. The chord shapes are in the key of C, but the song is in E with the capo on 4 (E is 4 semitones from C). 2) Listen to the first 3 seconds of the song MANY TIMES! Listen before the harmonica and drums come in, they overpower the guitar sound and it's hard to hear. The chord pattern is hard to learn by just reading this lesson, so you need to listen to the song very very closely. 3) Chords: the chords are Am x02210, G6 320000, and F 133211. Even though the capo is on 4, the chord structures are the same. As I said, the chords shapes are in C, but with the capo the song is in E. 4) Intro: the intro is the same chord structure as the rest of the song except Dylan plucks the open A string, palm mutes/slaps, and then goes into the chords. If you learn the chord structure first, then the intro is easier to pickup on. Am(4x) G6(1x) F(6x) G6(2x) (same thing through the whole song) There must be some way out of here Am G6 F G6 Said the joker to the thief Am G6 F G6 There's too much confusion Am G6 F G6 I can't get no relief (same chords) Businessmen, they drink my wine Plowmen dig my earth None of them along the line Know what any of it is worth No reason to get excited The thief, he kindly spoke There are many here among us Who feel that life is but a joke But you and I, we've been through that And this is not our fate So let us not talk falsely now The hour is getting late All along the watchtower Princes kept the view While all the women came and went Barefoot servants, too Outside in the distance A wildcat did growl Two riders were approaching The wind began to howl
