LAY LADY LAY by Bob Dylan                    

G  Bm  F  Am  G  Bm  F  Am  
G          Bm   F             Am            G  Bm  F  Am  
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
G          Bm   F             Am            G  Bm  F  Am  
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
D        Em               G
Whatever colours you have in your mind 
D              Em     G
I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine
G          Bm   F             Am            G  Bm  F  Am
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile
His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
And you're the best thing that he's ever seen
Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile

Bm                          D        G
Why wait any longer for the world to begin
Bm                             Am G
You can have your cake and eat it too
Bm                          D       G
Why wait any longer for the one you love
              Bm               Am
When he's standing in front of you

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead
I long to see you in the morning light
I long to reach for you in the night
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead

G  Bm  F  Am  Bm  C  G

I think this song originally is played in the key of A, so one have to transpose
it up one whole step. Note also that it is played with chords moving down the 
frets in the "Lay lady lay"-part:

A in 5th fret
C#m in 4th fret
G in 3rd
Bm in 2nd.

One should also note the use of Asus4 in the B-part.

Good tab, man,pretty much how I play it, with, like olav torvund says at the end,the song in the key of A, in diminuendo from the 5th fret.
