Intro: E

E
They're selling postcards of the hanging.

         A2                     E
Where they're painting the passports brown.

    B7
And the beauty parlor's filled with sailors.

A2                     E
 The circus is in town.


Oh now here comes the blind commissoner.

        A2            E
Well they've got him in a trance.

    B7
One hand is tied to the tightrope walker.

A2                    E
 The other's in his pants.

Chorus:

        A2
And the riot squad they're restless

     E                 A2
They need some where to go.

   E               B7
As lady and I look out tonight

A2              E
 On Desolation Row.

E
Cinderella she seem so easy.

   A2                        E
Well it takes on to know one she smiles.

B7
Then puts her hand in her back pocket,

A2           E
Betty davis style.

E
And then in comes Romeo moaning.

        A2           E
You Belong to me I believe.
 
     B7                                             A2
And someone says your in the wrong place my friend

            E
You better leave.

      A2                        
And the only sound that's left

           E          A2
After the ambulances go.

B7
Is Cinderella sweeping up

  A2           E
On Desolation Row.

E
Now at midnight all the agents

        A2          E
And the superhuman crews

B7
Go Out and Round up everyone

      A2                  E
That knows more than they do.

E
They gonna bring them to the factory

           A2             E
Where the heart attack machines

B7
Is strapped across their shoulders

     A2          E
And then the kerosene

     A2
Is brought down from the castles

     E                 A2
By insurance men that go

B7
Check to see that no one is escaping

A2             E
To Desolation Row

             A2
Cause Right now I can't read too good

       E                      A2
Don't send me no more letters no.

        B7                         A2
Not unless you gotto mail them from
 
            E
Desolation Row.

This was a really good tab! Totally different sound on the acoustic, very, very interesting. Good job!

hi - i just wanted to point out you got all the third lines of the refrains wrong: it actually stays on A and does not go back to E ... gotta be like this:

A2
And the riot squad they're restless

E A2
They need some where to go.

A2 B7
As lady and I look out tonight

A2 E
On Desolation Row.
