Absolutely Sweet Marie  -  Bob Dylan
('Blonde on Blonde' album)


               D         G          A7              D
Well, your railroadgate, you know I just can't jump it.
G                 D               A7
Sometimes it gets so hard, you see.
         D           G          A7         D       Bm
I'm just sitting here beating on my trumpet,
     F#m                    D          A7
with all these promises you left for me.
          G              A7            D
But where are you tonight, sweet Marie ?

         D            G       A7      D
Well, I waited for you when I was half sick.
       G              D             A7
Yes I waited for you when you hated me.
         D            G              A7        D        Bm
Well, I waited for you inside of the frozen traffic
         F#m                    D         A7
When you knew I had some other place to be.
           G              A7            D
Now, where are you tonight, sweet Marie ?

      Bb                       D
Well, anybody can be just like me, obviosly,
     Bb                                          D             A7
But then, now again, not too many can be like you, fortunately.
                 D     G         A7     D
Well, six white horses that you did promise me
      G                    D                 A7
Where finaly delivered down to the penitentiary.
       D                G           A7      D       Bm
But to live outside the law, you must be honest.
  F#m                         D       A7
I know you always say that you agree,
     G                   A7            D
But where are you tonight, sweet Marie ?

               D   G     A7         D
Now, I been in jail when all my mail showed
       G                          D               A7
That a man can't give his address out to bad company,
          D           G              A7         D         Bm
And now I stand here lookin' at your yellow railroad
       F#m           D       A7
In the ruins of your balcony,
               G                A7           D
Wond'ring where are you tonight, sweet Marie ?

             Bb                                             D
Well I don't know how it happened,But the riverboat captain,he knows my fate
    Bb                                          D                  A7
But ev'rybody else, even yourself, they're just gonna have to wait.
                D    G     A7        D
Well, I got the fever down in my pockets,
    G            D               A7
The Persian drunkard, he follows me.
            D               G            A7          D       Bm
Yes, I can take him to your house, but I can't unlock it.
    F#m                             D        A7
You see, you forgot to leave me with the key.
    G                    A7            D
Oh, where are you tonight, sweet Marie ?
