                              One too many mornings – Bob Dylan
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Music & Lyrics: Bob Dylan
Tuning: Drop D (D a d g b e) with Capo on 5 
Key: C (G relative to capo)

Tab and arrangement by Robert Saunders


NOTES:

Although the original recording of this on Times They Are A-Changin’ (1964) seems to have been played 
open A tuning (according to dylanchords.info), you can make it sound pretty similar in Drop D and it’s 
a lot easier to drop the bass string than to retune everything to open A. There are other tabs in open 
tuning in the key of C with no capo (including one by me) which sound fine but this is my preferred way 
of playing it. 

You can also play it in standard tuning using the same chords. Bob Dylan seems to play it this way (in 
G relative to capo) in some of his live performances, although this is not intended to be an accurate 
transcription of any of his recordings. It is just the way that I like to play it, which is fairly close 
to (but not the same as) the album recording.

The intro, instrumental bridge and outro do not correspond to any Dylan recordings, so feel free to 
ignore them and head straight to the verse if you just want to learn how to play the song.

 next gig. I usually just improvise this part but usually goes something like this.]

LYRICS & CHORDS



d    f#  G                   Bm/f#
Down the street the dogs are barkin'

         C               G     G
And the day is a-gettin' dark

       G                Bm/f#           
As the night comes in a-fallin'

      C/g           Dsus6   G/B   G
The dogs'll lose their bark

     G                      Bm/f#
And the silent night will shatter

         C                G     G
From the sounds inside my mind

       G*           Bm/d
As I'm one too many mornings

      A7sus2     Dsus6 d f# G      G/B
And a thousand miles   be-hind




From the crossroads of my doorstep,

My eyes start to fade.

And I turn my head back to the room

Where my love and I have laid.

And I gaze back to the street

The sidewalk and the sign.

As I'm one too many mornings

And a thousand miles behind



It's a restless, hungry feeling

That don't mean no one no good.

When everything I'm saying,

You can say it just as good.

You are right from your side,

And I am right from mine.

We’re both just one too many mornings

And a thousand miles behind
