Here's the first verse of Bob Dylan's Desolation Row, off of his Highway 61 Revisited
album.  You can just apply these chords to the rest of the song, because I don't feel
like typing out 11 minute's worth of lyrics.

First of all, sometimes when he's playing the E chord, he throws in what I believe is
called an Esus4 which is played like this:

e|--------0----------|
B|--------0----------|
G|--------2----------|
D|--------2----------|
A|--------2----------|
E|--------0----------|

You sort of have to listen to the song to know when he does it.
So, here's the chords.

[Intro]

E Esus4 E Esus4 E Esus4 E


[Verse 1]

E
They're selling post cards of the hanging,
        A                      E
They're painting the passports brown.
    B7
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors,
A                   E
The circus is in town.

Here comes the blind commissioner,

        A             E
They've got him in a trance.
    B7
One hand is tied to the tightrope walker,
A                    E
The other is in his pants.
        A  
And the riot squad, they're restless,
     E                 A
They need somewhere to go.
   E               B7
As lady and I look out tonight,
A               E
From Desolation Row.
