BUCKETS OF RAIN (by Bob Dylan; performed by Wendy Bucklew)
----------------------------------------------------------
[This is from the Bob Dylan tribute album put out by Altlanta-area
 musicians a few years back.  It's actually in F#, with a capo at
 the 4th fret, tuned DGDF#AD.  It sounds fairly similar to Dylan's
 version.]

Now I been meek and hard like an oak; you know I seen pretty people disappear
   like smoke
And friends will arrive, friends will disappear
If'n you want me, well honey baby, I'll be here
Oh yeah, mmm-hmmmmm-hmmm-hmmmmm
Mmm-hmmm-hmm-mmmmm-hmm-hmmmmm
[instrumental: A G F#m Em etc.]

I like your smile and your fingertips; I like the way that you move your hips
I like that cool way you look at me
Now everything about you is bringing me misery
Oh yeah, mmm-hmmmmm-hmmm-hmmmmm
Mmm-hmmm-hmm-mmmmm-hmm-hmmmmm
[instrumental: A G F#m Em etc.]

Little red wagon, little red bike; I ain't no monkey, but I know what I like
And I like the way you love me strong and slow
Taking you with me, honey baby, when I go
Taking you with me, honey baby, when I go

Life is sad, life is a bust; all you can do is do what you must
And you do what you must do and you do it well
I'll do it for you, honey baby, can you tell
I'll do it for you, honey baby, can you tell
Mmm-hmmmmm-hmmm-hmmmmm
Mmm-hmmmmm-hmmm-hmmmmm
Mmm-hmmm-hmm-mmmmm-hmm-hmmmmm
