          You’re a Big Girl Now (outtake) – Bob Dylan
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Open D + capo 2nd fret (= Open E)

Bob Dylan
You’re a Big Girl Now (outtake)

Recorded New York City 9/17/74
Outtake from Blood On The Tracks
First Released On Biograph, 1985

Now on: "Side Tracks"



The song is played in Open E tuning. This means you have to tune up the A 
and the D string up one note and the G string up one semi tone. I don't
like tuning strings up that much, as I sometimes tend to break strings.
I'd suggest to tune strings down, using Open D, and then using a capo on
the 2nd fret to bring it back to Open E:

tuning: Open D (D-A-D-F#-A D)
capo: 2nd fret (sounds: E-B E-G#-B E = Open E)
key: E

I included voicings for standard tuning, too, if you don't want to retune.

[Verse 1]
Emaj7            A6
 Our conversation was short and sweet
Emaj7              A6
 It nearly swept me off-a my feet
        Emaj7                  A6
And I’m back in the rain, mmh, mmh
                   Emaj7      A6
And you are on dry land, mmh, mmh
You made it there somehow
B6        A/B      E     Esus4 E | B | 
 You’re a big girl now 

[Verse 2]
Emaj7                A6
 Bird on the horizon, sittin’ on a fence
Emaj7                        A6
 He’s singin’ his song for me at his own expense
        Emaj7                    A6
And I’m just like that bird, ah, ah
                 Emaj7     A6
Singin’ just for you, mmh, mmh
I hope that you can hear
B6       A/B                   E     Esus4 E | B | 
 Hear me singin’ through these tears

[Verse 3]
Emaj7             A6
 Love is so simple, to quote a phrase
Emaj7                         A6
 You’ve known it all the time, I’m learnin’ it these days
      Emaj7                          A6
Oh, I know where I can find you, oh, oh
              Emaj7      A6
In somebody’s room, mmh, mmh
It’s a price I have to pay
B6        A/B              E     Esus4 E | B | 
 You’re a big girl all the way

[Verse 4]
Emaj7                A6
 Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast
Emaj7                    A6
 Oh, but what a shame if all we’ve shared can’t last
      Emaj7                 A6
I can change, I swear, mmh, mmh
                 Emaj7    A6
See what you can do, mmh, mmh
I can make it through
B6  A/B             E     Esus4 E | B | 
    You can make it too

[Verse 5]
Emaj7                   A6
 A change in the weather can be extreme
Emaj7                       A6
 But it ain’t like changing horses in midstream
          Emaj7                A6
I’m going out of my mind, mmh, mmh
                           Emaj7       A6
With a pain that stops and starts, ah, ah
Like a corkscrew to my heart
B6    A/B              E      Esus4 E | B | 
 Ever since we’ve been apart

| Emaj7 | A6 | Emaj7 | A6 |
| Emaj7 | A6 | Emaj7 | A6 |
| F#m7 | B6 A/B | E
