    Hints:
    The notes as tabbed below are merely a guide as to bass/treble
strings for strumming, they aren't set in stone!  Finger the whole chord
each time anyway.  The open top E on the off-beat is easiest played on
the upstroke.

              Bird on the horizon              sitting on a fence
(etc)

Bird on the horizon
Sittin' on a fence
He's singing his song for me
At his own expense
And I'm just like that bird
Oh-oh
Singin' just for you
Oh-oh
I hope that you can hear
Hear me singin' through these tears


Love is so simple
To quote a phrase
You've known it all the time
I'm learnin' it these days
Oh, I know where I can find you
Oh-oh
In somebody's room
Oh-oh
It's a price I have to pay
You're a big girl all the way


Time is a jet plane
It moves too fast
Oh but what a shame
That all we've shared can't last
I can change I swear
Oh-oh
See what you can do
Mm-mm
I can make it through
You can make it too


A change in the weather
Can be extreme
But it ain't like changing
Horses in midstream
I'm going out of my mind
Oh-oh
With a pain that stops and starts
Mm-mm
Like a corkscrew to my heart
Ever since we've been apart

From: Harlan L Thompson 

YOU'RE A BIG GIRL NOW- Bob Dylan

TUNING: E B E G# B E, capo 3rd fret


G#m/E            F#m7
Our conversation was short and sweet
G#m/E              F#m7
It nearly swept me off of my feet
          E             E(2) Esus2 A                      E
And I'm back in the rain,        oooh and you are on dry land
E(2) Esus2 A                    F#m7
          You made it there somehow
G#m7/E    B11       E    B
You're a big girl now

Bird on the horizon sittin' on a fence
He's singing his song for me at his own expense
And I'm just like that bird, oooh singin' just for you
I hope that you can hear
Hear me singin' through these tears

Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast
Oh but what a shame that all we've shared can't last
I can change I swear, woooa see what you can do
I can make it through
You can make it too

Love is so simple to quote a phrase
You've known it all the time, I'm learnin' it these days
Oh, I know where I can find you, oooh in somebody's room
It's a price I have to pay
You're a big girl all the way

A change in the weather is known to be extreme
But what's the sense of changing horses in midstream
I'm going out of my mind, oooh with a pain that stops and starts
Like a corkscrew to my heart
Ever since we've been apart

NOTE:  I got most of this from the bootleg version posted before, but I
made some changes according to what I heard on the album version (Blood
on the Tracks, 1975). Also, the G#m/E is a bit tricky to play, but I play
it by using the thumb on the low E.

This really is a great tab, who ever rated it 1 star before me maybe didnt see the tuning......? Blood on the Tracks uses this tuning in many of the songs.

Tune open D instead(DADF#AD) and capo at the second fret. This will relieve string and neck tension). Great tab.
