Tell Me That It Isn't True

Words and music Bob Dylan
Released on Nashville Skyline (1969)
Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem

Capo 3rd fret (sounding key F major)

The G/b in the last line of the verses does contain a Bm somewhere (which actually 
turns it into a Gmaj7 of some sort)

    D                 Dsus4

D            A      Em       D
I have heard rumors all over town,
D                     A       Em         D
 They say that you're planning to put me down.
G           F#m          A
 All I would like you to do,
G/b                 Em    D
 Is tell me that it isn't true.

They say that you've been seen with some other man,
That he's tall, dark and handsome, and you're holding his hand.
Darlin', I'm a-countin' on you,
Tell me that it isn't true.
G                 F#m          Em          D
To know that some other man is holdin' you tight,
F#              Bm       Em           F#m    Em
It hurts me all over, it doesn't seem right.
All of those awful things that I have heard,
I don't want to believe them, all I want is your word.
So darlin', you better come through,
Tell me that it isn't true.
[instrumental break]
All of these awful things that I have heard,
I don't want to believe them, all I want is your word.
So darlin', I'm countin' on you,
Tell me that it isn't true.

F#   Bm   Em   F#m

[three suggestions for the ending:]
  D/g     G6               D           D       G6                D

This is actually played on a guitar capoed on the 1st fret, something like:
