Here is a tab on how to play Bob Dylan's ''Most Of The Time'' from his 1989 album ''Oh Mercy''.

Intro: F |Bb | C7 | F

Most of the time
I’m clear focused all around
Most of the time
I can keep both feet on the ground
Am                  G F 
I can follow the path, I can read the signs
Am               G  F
Stay right with it when the road unwinds
                C                   Fadd9
I can handle whatever I stumble upon
              Am     G     F
I don’t even notice she’s gone
             C   F  C  F 
Most of the time

Most of the time
It’s well understood
Most of the time
I wouldn’t change it if I could
Am                       G  F
I can make it all match up, I can hold my own
Am                         G   F
I can deal with the situation right down to the bone
         C                Fadd9
I can survive, I can endure
                   Am    G    F
And I don’t even think about her
              C  Fadd9  C  Fadd9
Most of the time

Most of the time
My head is on straight
Most of the time
Fadd9                     G
I’m strong enough not to hate
Am                     G   F                    G
I don’t build up illusion ’til it makes me sick
Am                    G     F
I ain’t afraid of confusion no matter how thick
                      C          Fadd9
I can smile in the face of mankind
                  Am          G                   Fadd9
Don’t even remember what her lips felt like on mine
              C F C F G
Most of the time

Am           G   C
Most of the time
She ain’t even in my mind
Am                           G
I wouldn’t know her if I saw her
She’s that far behind
Most of the time
I can’t even be sure
If she was ever with me
Am                   F/C
Or if I was with her

Most of the time
I’m halfway content
Most of the time
Fadd9                           C
I know exactly where it went
Am                   G  F
I don’t cheat on myself, I don’t run and hide
Am                F  
Hide from the feelings that are buried inside
              C                    Fadd9
I don’t compromise and I don’t pretend
               Am                    Fadd9
I don’t even care if I ever see her again
              C   Fadd9
Most of the time

Outro ||: C | Fadd9 | C | Fadd9 :|| Repeat to fade

That's it.

Great song, fine tab - thank you!

One suggestion: I'd use a F/G (3-x-3-2-1-1) as the last chord of the middle 8.

I'm afraid, my positive rating was a little premature.

The intro (which I didn't really notice the first time around) does not make much sense to me. I don't hear all these changes in that fade-in drone at the bginning. To me it's all F.

I do not hear all these Fadd9 either. I think, they're all regular F chords.

Then, the alignment of chords and lyrics very often does not represent what can be heard on the recording.

And there's the F/G at the end of the middle 8 that I pointed at in my forst comment.

Where does all that come from if it cannot be heard on Dylan's recording? Yes, the tabber did not ear-transcribe his tab but just copied it from an official chord-book (in this case: "The Little Black Songbook - Bob Dylan") - including all the mistakes. The "feedback" that is asked for here, might as well be directed to www.musicsales.com.
