Intro: D, D,D,D,E,E,E,E,E,E-D,D,D,D,E,E,E,E,E,E E Well, there was this movie I seen one time, D About a man riding 'cross the desert and it starred Gregory Peck. E He was shot down by a hungry kid trying to make a name for himself. D The townspeople wanted to crush that kid down and string him up by the neck. E Well, the marshal, now he beat that kid to a bloody pulp D as the dying gunfighter lay in the sun and gasped for his last breath. E Turn him loose, let him go, let him say he outdrew me fair and square, D I want him to feel what it's like to every moment face his death. E Well, I keep seeing this stuff and it just comes a-rolling in D And you know it blows right through me like a ball and chain. E You know I can't believe we've lived so long and are still so far apart. D The memory of you keeps callin' after me like a rollin' train. E I can still see the day that you came to me on the painted desert E In your busted down Ford and your platform heels D I could never figure out why you chose that particular place to meet E Ah, but you were right. It was perfect as I got in behind the wheel. D E Well, we drove that car all night into San Anton' D And we slept near the Alamo, your skin was so tender and soft. E Way down in Mexico you went out to find a doctor and you never came back. D I would have gone on after you but I didn't feel like letting my head get blown off. E Well, we're drivin' this car and the sun is comin' up over the Rockies, D Now I know she ain't you but she's here and she's got that dark rhythm in her soul. E But I'm too over the edge and I ain't in the mood anymore to remember the times when I was your only man E And she don't want to remind me. She knows this car would go out of control. D Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls, teeth like pearls shining like the moon above E D Brownsville girl, show me all around the world, Brownsville girl, you're my honey love. E Well, we crossed the panhandle and then we headed towards Amarillo D We pulled up where Henry Porter used to live. He owned a wreckin' lot outside of town about a mile. E Ruby was in the backyard hanging clothes, she had her red hair tied back. D She saw us come rolling up in a trail of dust. E She said, "Henry ain't here but you can come on in, he'll be back in a little while." E Then she told us how times were tough and about how she was thinkin' of bummin' a ride back to where she started. D But ya know, she changed the subject every time money came up. E She said, "Welcome to the land of the living dead." You could tell she was so broken-hearted. D She said, "Even the swap meets around here are getting pretty corrupt." E "How far are y'all going?" Ruby asked us with a sigh. E "We're going all the way 'til the wheels fall off and burn, D 'Til the sun peels the paint and the seat covers fade and the water moccasin dies." E Ruby just smiled and said, "Ah, you know some babies never learn." E Something about that movie though, well I just can't get it out of my head D But I can't remember why I was in it or what part I was supposed to play. E All I remember about it was Gregory Peck and the way people moved D And a lot of them seemed to be lookin' my way. E Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls, teeth like pearls shining like the moon above E D Brownsville girl, show me all around the world, Brownsville girl, you're my honey love. E Well, they were looking for somebody with a pompadour. D I was crossin' the street when shots rang out. E I didn't know whether to duck or to run, so I ran. D "We got him cornered in the churchyard," I heard somebody shout. E Well, you saw my picture in the Corpus Christi Tribune. Underneath it, it said, "A man with no alibi." E You went out on a limb to testify for me, you said I was with you. D Then when I saw you break down in front of the judge and cry real tears, E It was the best acting I saw anybody do. D Now I've always been the kind of person that doesn't like to trespass but E sometimes you just find yourself over the line. D Oh if there's an original thought out there, I could use it right now. E You know, I feel pretty good, but that ain't sayin' much. I could feel a D whole lot better, E If you were just here by my side to show me how. E Well, I'm standin' in line in the rain to see a movie starring Gregory Peck, D Yeah, but you know it's not the one that I had in mind. E He's got a new one out now, I don't even know what it's about D But I'll see him in anything so I'll stand in line. E Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls, teeth like pearls shining like the moon above E D Brownsville girl, show me all around the world, Brownsville girl, you're my honey love. E You know, it's funny how things never turn out the way you had 'em planned. D The only thing we knew for sure about Henry Porter is that his name wasn't Henry Porter. E And you know there was somethin' about you baby that I liked that was always too good for this world D Just like you always said there was something about me you liked that I left behind in the French Quarter. E Strange how people who suffer together have stronger connections than people who are most content. E I don't have any regrets, they can talk about me plenty when I'm gone. D You always said people don't do what they believe in, they just do what's most convenient, then they repent. E And I always said, "Hang on to me, baby, and let's hope that the roof stays on." E There was a movie I seen one time, I think I sat through it twice. D I don't remember who I was or where I was bound. E All I remember about it was it starred Gregory Peck, he wore a gun and he was shot in the back. E Seems like a long time ago, long before the stars were torn down. E D Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls, teeth like pearls shining like the moon above E D Brownsville girl, show me all around the world, Brownsville girl, you're my honey love. Sorry if I'm wrong at the chords. It's a very long song. 11 minutes. Dylan must have put a lot of effort to write a song this long.Two easy chords throughout this song. enjoy!
