LIKE A ROLLING STONE – The Jimi Hendrix Experience
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Andy and Others 
Email: None

Tuning: Half tone down
This is one of the best songs I’d ever heard. This is way I play it. I learned
it from different tabs so you may recognize something.

Then he plays |B E |F#  | a couple of times.
Before the verse |B E |F#  |F#  | F#  | but on the two last measures of F# he plays this: 
eb|--------9----9-------9----------9-----|------9-------9-------9------9-------|
Bb|------9---9--9-h-11--9--9-h-11--------|----9---9-----9-h-11--9-h-11-9-------|

Db|-9h11---------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
Ab|--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
Eb|--------------------------------------|----------------------------------2h4|

[Verse 1]
B               C#m  
Once upon a time you dressed so fine
D#m                               E      F#
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?
B             C#m                D#m 
People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"
                      E  F# 
You thought they were all kiddin' you
E           F#
You used to laugh about
E                  F#
Everybody that was hangin' out
E       B     C#m          B
Now you don't talk so loud
E       B     C#m          B
Now you don't seem so proud
C#                           E                   F#
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.

F#              B   E    F#
How does it feel
F#              B   E    F#
How does it feel
F#               B   E    F#
To be on your own
F#                    B   E   F#
With no direction home
F#                    B   E   F#
Like a complete unknown
F#                   B   E   F#
Like a rolling stone?

Here is the little after chorus thing:

eb|---------9------9-----9-------9--9--|-9----9----9----9------9---------------|
Bb|------9---------9h11--9—9h11--11—11-|-9h11—9h11-9h11-9------9---------------|
Gb|9h11--------11----------------------|-------------------11-----11-----------|
Db|9h11--------------------------------|---------------------------------------|
Ab|------------------------------------|-----------------------------------2---|
Eb|------------------------------------|------------------------------2h4-----4|

[Verse 2](same chords as verse 1) 
You've gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street
And now you find out you're gonna have to get used to it
You said you'd never compromise
With the mystery tramp, but now you realize
He's not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And ask him do you want to make a deal?

F#              B   E    F#
How does it feel
F#              B   E    F#
How does it feel
F#               B   E    F#
To be on your own
F#                    B   E   F#
With no direction home
F#                    B   E   F#
Like a complete unknown
F#                   B   E   F#
Like a rolling stone?

Another after chorus thing:
eb|--------14------------15------------|---------------------------------------|
Bb|--17b------------18--------17b--15--|---------------------------------------|
Gb|-----------16b----------------------|--3---3----4------4--------------------|
Db|------------------------------------|--4---4----4------4--------------------|
Ab|------------------------------------|--4---4----4------4---------------2----|
Eb|------------------------------------|--2---2----2------2----0-h-2--4--------|

[Verse 3](As verse 1 and 2)
Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
They're drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made
Exchanging all kinds of precious gifts and things
But you'd better lift your diamond ring, you'd better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him now, he calls you, you can't refuse
When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal.

F#              B   E    F#
How does it feel
F#              B   E    F#
How does it feel
F#               B   E    F#
To be on your own
F#                    B   E   F#
With no direction home
F#                    B   E   F#
Like a complete unknown
F#                   B   E   F#
Like a rolling stone?
