Intro: C  CSUS  C  CSUS  C  CSUS

They're selling postcards of the hanging
F                               C
They're painting the passports brown
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
The circus is in town
Here comes the blind commissioner
F   FSUS               C
They've got him in a trance
One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker
F                    C
The other is in his pants
And the riot squad they're restless
C                      F
They need somewhere to go
C             G
As Lady and I look out tonight
F                C   CSUS  C  CSUS
From Desolation Row

(Instrumental verse with harmonica in the key of E)

Well thats the song. If you have the altranate version a few lines are
different for mainly, "Their spoon feeding casonova the boiled guts of birds"
Well keep on grooving

Not bad, but an easier way to do it is to drop-tune the top E string to C, so when you capo the fourth fret, you have an E on the top again, so you can hit it as a bass note.

To save de-tuning, I just leave the capo off the low E string. Easy peasy.
