        The Times They Are A-Changin' (Alternate) - Bob Dylan
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Drop D (+ capo 3rd fret)

Bob Dylan 
The Times They Are A-Changin' 
(Alternate Version, recorded October 23, 1963)
(Bob Dylan)

From: "Love and Theft" (Bonus CD of Limited Edition)

A beautiful version in a different key and tuning. Dylan is obviously
experimenting here as he uses a different chord sequence in every 
chorus.

capo: 3rd fret
play: D
key: F
