I was right, I missed a verse.  Here's a corrected version.

Abandoned Love  by Bob Dylan (from Biograph collection)


Intro:

G                   D              G
My heart is telling me, I love you still


Verses:

G                             Em
I can see the turning of the key
          C                               D
I've been deceived by the clown inside of me
  Bm                                     C
I thought that he was righteous but he's vain
G                   D                       G
Something's telling me, I wear the ball and chain


(same chords throughout)

My patron saint is a-fighting with a ghost
He's always off somewhere when I need him most
The Spanish moon is rising on the hill
But something's telling me, I love you still

I come back to the town from the flaming ruins
But when I see you in the street I begin to swoon
I love to see you dress before the mirror
Won't you let me in your room one time, before I finally disappear

Everybody's wearing a disguise
To hide what they've got left behind their eyes
But me I can't cover what I am
Wherever their children go, I'll follow them

I'm marching the parade of liberty
But as long as I love you I'm not free
How long must I suffer such abuse
Won't you let me see you smile, before I turn you loose

I've given up the game I've got to leave
The pot of gold is only make believe
The treasure can't be found by men who search
Who's gods are dead and whose queens are in the church

We sat in an empty theater and we kissed
I asked you please to cross me off your list
My head tells me it's time to make a change
But my heart is telling me, I love you but you're strange

(Harmonica solo, same chords as verse)

So one more time at midnight near the wall
Take off your heavy makeup and your shawl
Won't you descend from the throne from whence you sit
And let me feel your love one more time, before I finally abandon it
