(It’s All Over Now) Baby Blue
By Bob Dylan

The Chocolate Watchband

This is a Dylan cover that I saw CWB play live on YouTube.  They did a studio cut in
that has more stuff going on, but the main riffs haven’t changed much.  The lead guitar is
12-string electric and holds down the picked pattern riffs and contributes arpeggiated 
during the verses. The rhythm guitar holds standard chord positions.  Check out
McGuinn and the Byrds’ Mr. Tambourine Man and Turn, Turn, Turn for some great ideas on 
chords on the 12-string.  BTW- These are the CWB lyrics.  The CWB sings an abridged 
of the Dylan lyric and make up their own verses.

12-string electric guitar:
    (Asus4)			     (Dsus2)

Intro: Asus4/Asus4/Dsus2/Dsus2 [12-string continues pattern over first
lines of the first verse]

    A                                        D
The highway is for gamblers, better use your sense
A                                       D
Take what you have gathered from coinci-dence
     Em             G                  D
Your lover who just walked through your door
    Em            G                 D
Has taken all his blankets from the floor
F#m				    A        N.C.
Look out babe, the sky is fallin’ through
Em                G        D
And it's all over now, Baby Blue

12-string electric guitar:
    (Asus4)			     (Dsus4)

Asus4/Dsus4/Asus4/Dsus4/D (open)

           A				       D
Leave your steppin’ stone behind girl, start anew
   A							  D
Forget about those debts you left, they will not follow you

    Em           G                  D
The empty-handed painter from your streets
    Em           G                 D
Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets
F#m                            	  A	N.C.
Look out babe, the carpets foldin’ over you

    Em            G          D
And it's all over now, Baby Blue

      F#				        A		     N.C.
Well, strike another match, girl, don’t start anew, don’t start anew
       Em            G         D
Cause, it's all over now, Baby Blue
               Em            G         D
Yeah, it's all over all over now, Baby Blue
                    Em       		 G          D
Yeah, Yeah, it's all over all over all over, Baby Blue
