Bob Dylan - "Positively 4th Street"
Tabbed by Father-McKenzie

I looked at all the other available tabs for this song, and they we're all wrong. A few 
more wrong than others.

Standard Tuning

Intro (keyboard, transcribed for guitar)
It's basically a Ebm pentatonic scale:



The rest of the keyboard fills center around this scale.

F#         Abm
You got a lotta nerve
    B             F#
To say you are my friend
F#         C#
When I was down
B         Ebm           C#
You just stood there grinning

(The rest of the song follows this exact chord structure)

You got a lotta nerve
To say you got a helping hand to lend
You just want to be on
The side that's winning

You say I let you down
You know it's not like that
If you're so hurt
Why then don't you show it

You say you lost your faith
But that's not where it's at
You had no faith to lose
And you know it

I know the reason
That you talk behind my back
I used to be among the crowd
You're in with

Do you take me for such a fool
To think I'd make contact
With the one who tries to hide
What he don't know to begin with

You see me on the street
You always act surprised
You say, "How are you?" "Good luck"
But you don't mean it

When you know as well as me
You'd rather see me paralyzed
Why don't you just come out once
And scream it

No, I do not feel that good
When I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief
Perhaps I'd rob them

And now I know you're dissatisfied
With your position and your place
Don't you understand
It's not my problem

I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment
I could be you

Yes, I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is
To see you

I've never seen this song tabbed like that but it actually sounds very good - the other tabs are usually in G but it sounds indeed better in F#. I'd give it 5 stars but i have to try to play along to the record to doublecheck it. I assume that Dylan used a capo on the 2nd fret though. It's novice btw
