                            ----------------------

I haven't heard any guitars on the album version, just a lot of brass and a weird 
organ, so this is actually the organ part. It can also be played on the guitar.

              F                    Fdim      Edim  F
Well, they'll stone ya when you're trying to be so good
                       Fdim      Edim      F
They'll stone ya just  like they said they would
        Bb                   Edim      Cdim
They'll stone ya when you're tryin' to go home
             F                    Fdim  Edim   F
Then they'll stone ya when you're there all a-lone
      C7
But I would not feel so all alone
F         Fdim Edim F
Everybody must get  stoned.


Well, they'll stone ya when you're walkin' 'long the street.
They'll stone ya when you're tryin' to keep your seat.
They'll stone ya when you're walkin' on the floor.
They'll stone ya when you're walkin' to the door.
But I would not feel so all alone,
Everybody must get stoned.

They'll stone ya when you're at the breakfast table.
They'll stone ya when you are young and able.
They'll stone ya when you're tryin' to make a buck.
They'll stone ya and then they'll say, "good luck."
Tell ya what, I would not feel so all alone,
Everybody must get stoned.

Well, they'll stone you and say that it's the end.
Then they'll stone you and then they'll come back again.
They'll stone you when you're riding in your car.
They'll stone you when you're playing your guitar.
Yes, but I would not feel so all alone,
Everybody must get stoned.

Well, they'll stone you when you walk all alone.
They'll stone you when you are walking home.
They'll stone you and then say you are brave.
They'll stone you when you are set down in your grave.
But I would not feel so all alone,
Everybody must get stoned.

                               Pleding My Time
                               ---------------

This is just played with the standard blues progression.

                   A
Well, early in the morning

'Til late at night,
               D
I got a poison headache,

But I feel all right.
                A        E
I'm pledging my time to you,
                            A    D  A  E
Hopin' you'll come through, too.

Well, the hobo jumped up,
He came down naturally.
After he stole my baby,
Then he wanted to steal me.
But I'm pledging my time to you,
Hopin' you'll come through, too.

Won't you come with me, baby?
I'll take you where you wanna go.
And if it don't work out,
You'll be the first to know.
I'm pledging my time to you,
Hopin' you'll come through, too.

Well, the room is so stuffy,
I can hardly breathe.
Ev'rybody's gone but me and you
And I can't be the last to leave.
I'm pledging my time to you,
Hopin' you'll come through, too.

Well, they sent for the ambulance
And one was sent.
Somebody got lucky
But it was an accident.
Now I'm pledging my time to you,
Hoping you'll come through, too.

                          Visions Of Johanna
                          ------------------

Capo: 2nd fret


*Intro: G Gsus4 2x (This is also played between the verses)

         G                           C                  D
Aint it just like the night, to play tricks when you're trying to be so
G      Gsus4   G
quiet.
                                   C             D         G      Gsus4  G
We sit here stranded, though we're all doing our best to deny it.
    D                                                  G       Gsus4  G
And Louise, holds a handful of rain, tempting you to defy it.
        C                          G
Lights flicker, from the opposite loft.
    C                              G
In this room, the heat pipes just cough.
    C                            G
The country music station, plays soft but there's nothing, really nothing
         D    Dsus4  D  Dsus2 D
to turn off.
     G               C     D     G      Gsus4 G
Just Louise, and her lover so intwined.
          C             G          D            G    Gsus4
And these visions, of Johanna have conquered my mind.


In the empty lot where the ladies play
blindman's bluff with the key chain
And the all-night girls
they whisper of escapades out on the D-train
We can hear the night watchman click his flashlight
Ask himself if it's him or them that's insane
Louise, she's all right, she's just near
She's delicate and seems like the mirror
But she just makes it all too concise and too clear
That Johanna's not here
The ghost of electricity howls in the bones of her face
Where these visions of Johanna
have now taken my place

Now, a little boy lost,
he takes himself so seriously
He brags of his misery,
he likes to live dangerously
And when bringing her name up
He speaks of a farewell kiss to me
He's sure got a lotta gall
to be so useless and all
Muttering small talk at the wall
while I'm in the hall
How can I explain?
Oh, it's so hard to get on
And these visions of Johanna,
they kept me up past the dawn

Inside the museums,
Infinity goes up on trial
Voices echo this is what
salvation must be like after a while
But Mona Lisa musta had the highway blues
You can tell by the way she smiles
See the primitive wallflower freeze
When the jelly-faced women all sneeze
Hear the one with the mustache say, "Jeeze
I can't find my knees"
Oh, jewels and binoculars hang from the head of the mule
But these visions of Johanna,
they make it all seem so cruel

The peddler now speaks
to the countess who's pretending to care for him
Sayin', "Name me someone that's not a parasite
and I'll go out and say a prayer for him"
But like Louise always says
"Ya can't look at much, can ya man?"
As she, herself, prepares for him
And Madonna, she still has not showed
We see this empty cage now corrode
Where her cape of the stage once had flowed
The fiddler, he now steps to the road
He writes ev'rything's been returned which was owed
On the back of the fish truck that loads
While my conscience explodes
The harmonicas play the skeleton keys and the rain
And these visions of Johanna
are now all that remain

                        ------------------------------------

Capo: 5th fret

  C                        F  C
I didn't mean to treat you so bad
F             C          G
You shouldn't take it so personal
  C                       F  C
I didn't mean to make you so sad
F        C           G
You just happened to be there, that's all
Am                                   Em
When I saw you say "goodbye" to your friend and smile
Dm                         C
I thought that it was well understood
Am                             Em
That you'd be comin' back in a little while
Dm                                      F             G
I didn't know that you were sayin' "goodbye" for good

     C         G      F              C
But, sooner or later, one of us must know
F             C                  G
That you just did what you're supposed to do
C         G      F              C
Sooner or later, one of us must know
F             C              G
That I really did try to get close to you

I couldn't see what you could show me
Your scarf had kept your mouth well hid
I couldn't see how you could know me
But you said you knew me and I believed you did
When you whispered in my ear
And asked me if I was leavin' with you or her
I didn't realize just what I did hear
I didn't realize how young you were

But, sooner or later, one of us must know
You just did what you're supposed to do
Sooner or later, one of us must know
That I really did try to get close to you

I couldn't see when it started snowin'
Your voice was all that I heard
I couldn't see where we were goin'
But you said you knew an' I took your word
And then you told me later, as I apologized
That you were just kiddin' me, you weren't really from the farm
An' I told you, as you clawed out my eyes
That I never really meant to do you any harm

But, sooner or later, one of us must know
You just did what you're supposed to do
Sooner or later, one of us must know
That I really did try to get close to you
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                             I Want You
                             -----------

Capo: 5th fret

There are two guitars in this song. The "3rd" guitar is actually the organ. In the 
the Lead and the Organ play the same. The "F" of the rhytm- guitar must be played as a bar 
and the E minor must be played with the "B" as bass note to empathize the descending bass line of the song.

*Intro:

Leadguitar/Organ:
                |0-0-1p0---0-|0-0-1p0---0-|0-0-1p0-----|------------|
                |--------3---|--------3---|--------3--1|3-1p0-------|
                |------------|------------|------------|------2p0---|
                |------------|------------|------------|------------|
                |------------|------------|------------|------------|
                |------------|------------|------------|------------|
Rhythm:          C            Em/B         Am           G


*Verse:

The Lead guitar guitar plays the intro until the F chord. Then it plays:

 F            G            Am           G
|------------|------------|0-0-1p0-----|-----------|
|1-1-0-1-0---|3-3-1-3-1-0-|--------3-1-|-3-1p0-----|
|----------2-|------------|------------|-------2p0-|
|------------|------------|------------|-----------|
|------------|------------|------------|-----------|
|------------|------------|------------|-----------|

    C
The guilty undertaker sighs,
    Em/B
The lonesome organ grinder cries,
    Am                               G
The silver saxophones say I should refuse you.
    F
The cracked bells and washed-out horns
G
Blow into my face with scorn,
         Am
But it's not that way,
                 G
I wasn't born to lose you.


*Chorus:

Leadguitar and Organ play the intro

 C           Em/B
I want you, I want you,
  Am          G
I want you so bad,
         C
Honey, I want you.


*"Middle Eight":


 Em/B
Now all my fathers, they've gone down
     Am
True love they've been without it.
    Em/B
But all their daughters put me down
       F              G
'Cause I don't think about it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

            Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again
            ---------------------------------------------------

Capo: 4th fret

The "F" should again be played as a bar chord. This is important since Dylans
Guitar isn't very prominent in his "Rock"songs. You will most likely hear the
deeper tones of his guitar with lots of bass strings but not the higher tones
- they are covered by the electric lead guitar or/and the organ. If you want
to play the songs as close as possible to the original versions then I recco-
mend to empathize the deeper strings.

*Intro: C Csus4 4x

        C            Am
Oh, the ragman draws circles
C                   Am
Up and down the block.
    C                Am
I'd ask him what the matter was
      F                  G
But I know that he don't talk.
        F               C
And the ladies treat me kindly
    Am              C
And furnish me with tape,
    Am             C
But deep inside my heart
  F             C
I know I can't escape.
Em
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
      C       G       F
To be stuck inside of Mobile
C        G             C
With the Memphis blues again.


Well, Shakespeare, he's in the alley
With his pointed shoes and his bells,
Speaking to some French girl,
Who says she knows me well.
And I would send a message
To find out if she's talked,
But the post office has been stolen
And the mailbox is locked.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Mona tried to tell me
To stay away from the train line.
She said that all the railroad men
Just drink up your blood like wine.
An' I said, "Oh, I didn't know that,
But then again, there's only one I've met
An' he just smoked my eyelids
An' punched my cigarette."
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Grandpa died last week
And now he's buried in the rocks,
But everybody still talks about
How badly they were shocked.
But me, I expected it to happen,
I knew he'd lost control
When he built a fire on Main Street
And shot it full of holes.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Now the senator came down here
Showing ev'ryone his gun,
Handing out free tickets
To the wedding of his son.
An' me, I nearly got busted
An' wouldn't it be my luck
To get caught without a ticket
And be discovered beneath a truck.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Now the preacher looked so baffled
When I asked him why he dressed
With twenty pounds of headlines
Stapled to his chest.
But he cursed me when I proved it to him,
Then I whispered, "Not even you can hide.
You see, you're just like me,
I hope you're satisfied."
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Now the rainman gave me two cures,
Then he said, "Jump right in."
The one was Texas medicine,
The other was just railroad gin.
An' like a fool I mixed them
An' it strangled up my mind,
An' now people just get uglier
An' I have no sense of time.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

When Ruthie says come see her
In her honky-tonk lagoon,
Where I can watch her waltz for free
'Neath her Panamanian moon.
And I say, "Aw come on now,
You must know about my debutante."
And she says, "Your debutante just knows what you need
But I know what you want."
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Now the bricks lay on Grand Street
Where the neon madmen climb.
They all fall there so perfectly,
It all seems so well timed.
And here I sit so patiently
Waiting to find out what price
You have to pay to get out of
Going through all these things twice.
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again.

Easy. Just play the Chords with the standard blues pattern and use the "Riff" tabbed below:

"Riff 1":

E: D |2-2-4-4-5-5-4-4|
   E |0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0|

Use these patterns for all chords

*Intro: A D A
        A D A
        A E
        "Riff 1"


       A                D                               A
Well, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
       D                                                A
Yes, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
               E
Well, you must tell me, baby
                                         A
How your head feels under somethin' like that
"Riff 1"
Under your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat


Well, you look so pretty in it
Honey, can I jump on it sometime?
Yes, I just wanna see
If it's really the expensive kind
You know it balances on your head
Just like a mattress balances
On a bottle of wine
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat

Well, if you wanna see the sun rise
Honey, I know where
We'll go out and see it sometime
We'll both just sit there and stare
Me with my belt
Wrapped around my head
And you just sittin' there
In your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat

Well, I asked the doctor if I could see you
It's bad for your health, he said
Yes, I disobeyed his orders
I came to see you
But I found him there instead
You know, I don't mind him cheatin' on me
But I sure wish he'd take that off his head
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat

Well, I see you got a new boyfriend
You know, I never seen him before
Well, I saw him
Makin' love to you
You forgot to close the garage door
You might think he loves you for your money
But I know what he really loves you for
It's your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat

                              -----------------

Capo: 4th fret

  C    F     G   C
Nobody feels any pain
  C          F       G        C
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
F         G
Ev'rybody knows
     F              G
That Baby's got new clothes
    F   Em   Dm C       G
But lately   I  see her ribbons and her bows
     Am     C    F   Gsus4 G Gsus2 G
Have fallen from her curls.
    C     Em   Dm     F
She takes just like a woman, yes she does,
    C          Em   Dm     F
she makes love just like a woman, yes she does,
        C     Em   Dm     F
And she aches just like a woman,
        Gsus4  G    Gsus2  G      C
but she breaks just like a little girl.


Queen Mary, she's my friend
Yes, I believe I'll go see her again
Nobody has to guess
That Baby can't be blessed
Till she sees finally that she's like all the rest
With her fog, with her amphetamine and her pearls.
She takes just like a woman,
And she makes love just like a woman,
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

       E
It was raining from the first

And I was dying there of thirst
     C            Csus4 C
So I came in here
         E
And your long-time curse hurts

But what's worse
        F
Is this pain in here
Gsus4   G       Gsus2  G
I can't stay in here
Gsus4  G       Gsus2   G
Ain't it clear that

C F    G     C
I just don't fit
Yes, I believe it's time for us to quit
And when we meet again
Introduced as friends
Please don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world.
You take just like a woman,
And you make love just like a woman
And you ache just like a woman,

That's the Trumpet/Harmonica  part. It's played between the verses, in the solo and in the Intro/Outro


Am
You say you love me

And you're thinking of me,
                          G
But you know you could be wrong.
Am
You say you told me

That you wanna hold me,
                             G
But you know you're not that strong.
Bm
I just can't do what I done before,
Am
I just can't beg you any more.
          G
I'm gonna let you pass
    D
And I'll go last.
     G         Bm     C     G
Then time will tell just who has fell
    Am        D
And who's been left behind,
N.C.                          G
When you go your way and I go mine.

You say you disturb me
And you don't deserve me,
But you know sometimes you lie.
You say you're shakin'
And you're always achin',
But you know how hard you try.
Sometimes it gets so hard to care,
It can't be this way ev'rywhere.
And I'm gonna let you pass,
Yes, and I'll go last.
Then time will tell just who has fell
And who's been left behind,
When you go your way and I go mine.

    Em
The judge, he holds a grudge,
           D
He's gonna call on you.
         Em
But he's badly built

And he walks on stilts,
                   D           Dsus4
Watch out he don't fall on you.

You say you're sorry
For tellin' stories
That you know I believe are true.
You say ya got some
Other kinda lover
And yes, I believe you do.
You say my kisses are not like his,
But this time I'm not gonna tell you why that is.
I'm just gonna let you pass,
Yes, and I'll go last.
Then time will tell who fell
And who's been left behind,
When you go your way and I go mine.

This is the Riff that finishes all verses


G
Standing on your window, honey,
C              D7      G
Yes, I've been here before.
G
Feeling so harmless,
    C               D7      G
I'm looking at your second door.
D7                                      G
How come you don't send me no regards?
    G                D7
You know I want your lovin',
                      G     Riff 1
Honey, why are you so hard?


Kneeling 'neath your ceiling,
Yes, I guess I'll be here for a while.
I'm tryin' to read your portrait, but,
I'm helpless, like a rich man's child.
How come you send someone out to have me barred?
You know I want your lovin',
Honey, why are you so hard?

       Em
Like a poor fool in his prime,
                    Bm
Yes, I know you can hear me walk,
            Em
But is your heart made out of stone, or is it lime,
Bm              D7         D7sus4
  Or is it just solid rock?

Well, I rush into your hallway,
Lean against your velvet door.
I watch upon your scorpion
Who crawls across your circus floor.
Just what do you think you have to guard?
You know I want your lovin',
Honey, but you're so hard.

'chilles is in your alleyway,
He don't want me here,
He does brag.
He's pointing to the sky
And he's hungry, like a man in drag.
How come you get someone like him to be your guard?
You know I want your lovin',
Honey but you're so hard.

                            ----------------------

Here's the Organ part, it can also be played on the guitar:

           D                  G      A          D
Well, your railroad gate, you know I just can't jump it
G            D                 A
Sometimes it gets so hard, you see
         D            G       A     D       Bm
I'm just sitting here beating on my trumpet
     F#m                    D        A
With all these promises you left for me
    G               A              D
But where are you tonight, sweet Marie?

Well, I waited for you when I was half sick
Yes, I waited for you when you hated me
Well, I waited for you inside of the frozen traffic
When you knew I had some other place to be
Now, where are you tonight, sweet Marie?

      Bb
Well, anybody can be
          D
just like me, obviously
    Bb
But then, now again,
                         D             A
not too many can be like you, fortunately.

Well, six white horses that you did promise
Were fin'lly delivered down to the penitentiary
But to live outside the law, you must be honest
I know you always say that you agree
But where are you tonight, sweet Marie?

Well, I don't know how it happened
But the river-boat captain, he knows my fate
But ev'rybody else, even yourself
They're just gonna have to wait.

Well, I got the fever down in my pockets
The Persian drunkard, he follows me
Yes, I can take him to your house but I can't unlock it
You see, you forgot to leave me with the key
Oh, where are you tonight, sweet Marie?

Now, I been in jail when all my mail showed
That a man can't give his address out to bad company
And now I stand here lookin' at your yellow railroad
In the ruins of your balcony
Wond'ring where you are tonight, sweet Marie.

                             4th Time Around
                            ----------------

Capo: 4th fret


C    Csus4               C
When she said,"Don't waste
     Csus4                  C
your words, they're just lies,"
  Csus4            C        Csus4   C   Csus4
I cried she was deaf.
    C   Csus4           C
And she worked on my face
      Csus4          C
until breaking my eyes,
           Csus4                  C     Csus4   C  Csus4
Then said, "What else you got left?"
       Em
It was then that I got up to leave
                        Dm
But she said, "Don't forget,
     C         Csus4              C
Everybody must give something back
    Csus4             C       Csus4  C  Csus4
For something they get."

I stood there and hummed,
I tapped on her drum and asked her how come.
And she buttoned her boot,
And straightened her suit,
Then she said, "Don't get cute."
So I forced my hands in my pockets
And felt with my thumbs,
And gallantly handed her
My very last piece of gum.

She threw me outside,
I stood in the dirt where ev'ryone walked.
And after finding I'd
Forgotten my shirt,
I went back and knocked.
I waited in the hallway, she went to get it,
And I tried to make sense
Out of that picture of you in your wheelchair
That leaned up against . . .

Her Jamaican rum
And when she did come, I asked her for some.
She said, "No, dear."
I said, "Your words aren't clear,
You'd better spit out your gum."
She screamed till her face got so red
Then she fell on the floor,
And I covered her up and then
Thought I'd go look through her drawer.

And, when I was through
I filled up my shoe
And brought it to you.
And you, you took me in,
You loved me then
You didn't waste time.
And I, I never took much,
I never asked for your crutch.
Now don't ask for mine.

That's the Leadguitar during the C - Csus4 progression:

A
Early in the mornin', early in the mornin'
            D
I'm callin' you to, I'm callin' you to
            A
Please come home
                     E
Yes, I guess I could make it without you
     D                         A         "Riff 1" two times
If I just didn't feel so all a-lone


Don't let me down
Don't let me down
I won't let you down
I won't let you down
No I won't
You know I can if you can, honey
But, honey, please don't

I got my black dog barkin'
Black dog barkin'
Yes it is now
Yes it is now
Outside my yard
Yes, I could tell you what he means
If I just didn't have to try so hard

Your mama's workin'
Your mama's moanin'
She's cryin' you know
She's tryin' you know
You better go now
Well, I'd tell you what she wants
But I just don't know how

Fifteen jugglers
Fifteen jugglers
Five believers
Five believers
All dressed like men
Tell yo' mama not to worry because
They're just my friends

Early in the mornin'
Early in the mornin'
I'm callin' you to
I'm callin' you to
Please come home
Yes, I could make it without you
If I just did not feel so all alone

                           Sad-Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands
                           -----------------------------

Capo: 2nd fret

          C       G            F          G
With your mercury mouth in the missionary times,
         C         G         F            G
And your eyes like smoke and your prayers like rhymes,
         F      C               Dm    G    C
And your silver cross, and your voice like chimes,
    C           Dm          Gsus4 G Gsus2 G
Oh, who do they think could bury you?
          C       G    F             G
With your pockets well protected at last,
         C         G                 F            G
And your streetcar visions which you place on the grass,
         F           C             Dm    G   C
And your flesh like silk, and your face like glass,
C              Dm     Gsus4 G Gsus2 G
who could they get to carry you?

Dm                    C  G
Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands,
Dm                                   C      G
Where the sad-eyed prophet says that no man comes,
    C  G     F     C   F   C  G
My warehouse eyes, my Arabian drums,
Dm                         Gsus4 G Gsus2 G
Should I put them by your gate,
Dm                          C
Or, sad-eyed lady, should I wait?

With your sheets like metal and your belt like lace,
And your deck of cards missing the jack and the ace,
And your basement clothes and your hollow face,
Who among them can think he could outguess you?
With your silhouette when the sunlight dims
Into your eyes where the moonlight swims,
And your match-book songs and your gypsy hymns,
Who among them would try to impress you?

Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands,
Where the sad-eyed prophet says that no man comes,
My warehouse eyes, my Arabian drums,
Should I leave them by your gate,
Or, sad-eyed lady, should I wait?

The kings of Tyrus with their convict list
Are waiting in line for their geranium kiss,
And you wouldn't know it would happen like this,
But who among them really wants just to kiss you?
With your childhood flames on your midnight rug,
And your Spanish manners and your mother's drugs,
And your cowboy mouth and your curfew plugs,
Who among them do you think could resist you?

Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands,
Where the sad-eyed prophet says that no man comes,
My warehouse eyes, my Arabian drums,
Should I leave them by your gate,
Or, sad-eyed lady, should I wait?

Oh, the farmers and the businessmen, they all did decide
To show you the dead angels that they used to hide.
But why did they pick you to sympathize with their side?
Oh, how could they ever mistake you?
They wished you'd accepted the blame for the farm,
But with the sea at your feet and the phony false alarm,
And with the child of a hoodlum wrapped up in your arms,
How could they ever, ever persuade you?

Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands,
Where the sad-eyed prophet says that no man comes,
My warehouse eyes, my Arabian drums,
Should I leave them by your gate,
Or, sad-eyed lady, should I wait?

With your sheet-metal memory of Cannery Row,
And your magazine-husband who one day just had to go,
And your gentleness now, which you just can't help but show,
Who among them do you think would employ you?
Now you stand with your thief, you're on his parole
With your holy medallion which your fingertips fold,
And your saintlike face and your ghostlike soul,
Oh, who among them do you think could destroy you

Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands,
Where the sad-eyed prophet says that no man comes,
My warehouse eyes, my Arabian drums,
Should I leave them by your gate,
Or, sad-eyed lady, should I wait?
