          D                D7     G              
There's a storm across the valley clouds are rollin' in
 
    A7                              D  
the afternoon is heavy on your shoulders
 
                           D7          G  
there's a truck out on the four lane a mile or more away
 
    A7                                  D
the whinin' of his wheels just makes it colder
 
 
            D                D7             G

ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH

 

 
       G                         C    D
He was born in the summer of his 27th year,
       G                          C
Comin' home to a place he'd never been before.
        G           Em                  C                D
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again,
          G                            C
You might say he found a key for every door.
        G                              C             D
When he first came to the mountain his life was far away,
       G                     C
On the road and hangin' by a song,
        G                Em            C              D
But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care,
         G                                   C
It keeps changin' fast and it don't last for long.
          C        D              G          C               D           G
 But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.
      C               D            G                  C
 The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby.
                 G         C                    G         C
 Rocky Mountain high, Colorado, Rocky Mountain high, Colorado.
   G                                   C               D
He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below,
       G                            C
He saw everything as far as you can see.
         G               Em                C                  D
And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun,
       G                               C
And he lost a friend, but kept his memory.
G                                  C               D

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now he walks in quiet solitude the forests and the streams,
        G                      C
Seeking grace in every step he takes.
    G                  Em              C            D
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
    G                                 C
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake.
          C        D              G          C               D           G
 And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.
          C               D             G        C
 You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply.
                 G         C                    G         C
 Rocky Mountain high, Colorado, Rocky Mountain high, Colorado.
        G                               C                     D
Now his life is full of wonder, but his heart still know some fear
     G                            C
Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend.
         G               Em               C                 D
Why they try to tear the mountain down to bring in a couple more,
     G                           C
More people, more scars upon the land.
          C        D              G          C               D           G
 And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.
    C              D                G                  C
 I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly.
                 G            C        D              G
 Rocky Mountain high, it's a Colorado Rocky Mountain high,
       C               D           G    C                  D            G   C
 I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky, friends around the campfire and everybodyís high.

TILL THERE WAS YOU
 
 
There were bells on a hill,
But I never heard them ringing.
No I never heard them at all
Till there was you.
 
There were birds in the sky,
But I never saw them winging.
No I never saw them at all
Till there was you.
 
Then there was music, and wonderful roses
They tell me, 
in sweet fragrant meadows
of dawn, 
and you.
 
There was love all around,
But I never heard it singing.
No I never heard it at all
Till there was you.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
IF I FELL 
 
If I fell in love with you
would you promise to be true
and help me understand?
 
'Cause I've been in love before
and I found that love was more
than just holding hands
 
 
If I give my heart to you,
I must be sure
from the very start
that you,
would love me more than her
 
If I trust in you oh please,
don't run and hide
If I love you too oh please
don't hurt my pride like her,
 
'cause I couldn't stand the pain
and I,
would be sad if our new love,
was in vain
 
So I hope you see that I,
would love to love you,
and that she will cry
 
 
 
 
 

And I Love Her

 

 
I give her all my love
that's all I do
and if you saw my love
you'd love her too
and I love her
 
She gives me everything
and tenderly
the kiss my lover brings
She brings to me
and I love her
 
A love like ours
could never die
as long as I
have you near me
 
Bright are the stars that shine
dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
will never die
and I love her
 
Bright are the stars that shine
dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
will never die
and I love her
 
 

Things We Said Today

 

  
You say you will love me
if I have to go.
 
You'll be thinking of me,
somehow I will know.
 
Someday when I'm lonely,
wishing you weren't so far away,
then I will remember
things we said today.
 
You say you'll be mine, girl,
till the end of time.
 
These days such a kind girl,
seem so hard to find.
 
Someday when we're dreaming,
deep in love, not a lot to say,
then we will remember
things we said today.
 
Me, I'm just the lucky kind,
love to hear you say that love is luck.
And though we may be blind,
love is here to stay, and that's enough
 
to make you mine, girl,
be the only one.
 
Love me all the time girl WEíLL GO ON AND ON
 

I'll Cry Instead

 

I've got every reason on earth to be mad, 
'cause I've just lost the only girl I had. 
If I could get my way, 
I'd get myself locked up today, 
but I can't,
so I'll cry instead.
 
I've got a chip on my shoulder that's bigger than my feet,
I can't talk to people that I meet. 
If I could see you now,
I'd try to make you sad somehow, 
but I can't,
so I'll cry instead.
 
Don't want to cry when there's people there, 
I get shy when they start to stare, 
I'm gonna hide myself away,
but I'll come back again someday.
 
And when I do you'd better hide all the girls, 
'cause I'm gonna break their hearts all 'round the world. 
Yes, I'm gonna break them in two, 
I'll show you what your loving man can do.
Until then I'll cry instead.
 
 
Someday when we're dreaming,
deep in love, not a lot to say,
then we will remember
things we said today.
 
 
 
 
 
 

No Reply

                                           
 
This happened once before,
when I came to your door,
no reply.
 
They said it wasn't you,
but I saw you peep through your window.
 
I saw the light, I saw the light,
I know that you saw me,
'cos I looked up to see,
your face.
 
I tried to telephone,
they said you were not home,
that's a lie,
 
'Cos I know where you've been,
I saw you walk in your door.
 
I nearly died, I nearly died,
'cos you walked hand in hand
with another man,
in my place.
 
If I were you, I'd realise that I,
love you more than any other guy.
 
And I'll forgive the lies that I,
heard before,
when you gave me no reply.

I'll Follow The Sun

                                 
 
One day you'll look,
to see I've gone.
For tomorrow may rain so, 
I'll follow the sun.
 
Some day you'll know,
I was the one.
But tomorrow may rain so,
I'll follow the sun.
 
And now the time has come
And so my love I must go.
And though I lose a friend,
In the end you'll know, oooh.
 
One day you'll find, 
that I have gone.

You've Got To Hide Your Love Away

 

Here I stand with head in hand,
Turn my face to the wall.
If she's gone I can't go on,
feeling two-foot small
 
Everywhere people stare
each and every day.
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say.
 
Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away
 
How can I even try,
I can never win.
Hearing them, seeing them,
In the state I'm in
 
How could she say to me
Love will find a way.
Gather around all you clowns,
Let me hear you say
 
Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away
 
 
 
 
 

You're Going To Lose That Girl

 

You're going to lose that girl,

and I will take her out tonight,
and I will treat her kind.
 
You're going to lose that girl,
you're going to lose that girl.
 
If you don't treat her right my friend,
you're going to find her gone.
'Cos I will treat her right and then
you'll be the lonely one.
 
You're going to lose that girl,
you're going to lose that girl.
 
I'll make a point
of taking her away from you, yeah,
the way you treat her, what else can I do?
 
You're going to lose that girl,
you're going to lose that girl.
 
 

 

I've Just Seen a Face

I've just seen a face
I can't forget the time or place
Where we just meet,
She's just a girl for me
and I want all the world to see
We've met.
 
Had it been another day
I might have looked the other way
And I'd have never been aware,
But as it is I'll dream of her tonight.
 
Falling yes I am falling,
And she keeps calling
Me back again.
 
I have never known
The like of this, I've been alone
And I have missed things
And kept out of sight,
for other girls were never quite
Like this
 
Falling yes I am falling,
And she keeps calling
Me back again.
        
Falling yes I am falling,
And she keeps calling
Me back again.
 
I've just seen a face

Yesterday

 

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they're here to stay,
Oh I believe in yesterday.
 
Suddenly, I'm not half to man I used to be,
There's a shadow hanging over me.
Oh yesterday came suddenly.
 
Why she had to go? 
I don't know she wouldn't say.
I said something wrong, 
now I long for yesterday.
 
Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away,
Oh I believe in yesterday.
 
 
 
 
 

Nowhere Man

                         
He's a real nowhere Man,
Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
Making all his nowhere plans
for nobody.
 
Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?
 
Nowhere Man, please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command.
 
He's as blind as he can be,
Just sees what he wants to see,
Nowhere Man can you see me at all?
 
Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?
 
Nowhere Man, don't worry,
Take your time, don't hurry,
Leave it all 'till somebody else
lends you a hand.
 
He's a real Nowhere Man,
Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
Making all his nowhere plans
for nobody.

With A Little Help From My Friends

                                    
What would you think if I sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me ?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key.
 
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
 
What do I do when my love is away
(Does it worry you to be alone ?)
How do I feel by the end of the day, 
(Are you sad because you're on your own ?)
 
No, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
 
Do you need anybody 
I need somebody to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love.
 
Would you believe in a love at first sight
Yes, I'm certain that it happens all the time
What do you see when you turn out the light
I can't tell you but I know it's mine,
 
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
 
Do you need anybody 
I just need someone to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love.
 
 
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
with a little help from my friends.
 
 
 

A Day In The Life

                                    
I read the news today, oh boy,
About a lucky man who made the grade,
And though the news was rather sad,
Well, I just had to laugh.
I saw the photograph.
 
He blew his mind out in a car,
He didn't notice that the lights had changed,
A crowd of people stood and stared,
They've seen his face before,
Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords.
 
I saw a film today, oh boy,
The English army had just won the war,
A crowd of people turned away,
But I just had a look,
Having read a book, I'd love to turn you on...
 
Woke up, fell out of bed,
dragged a comb across my head,
found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
and looking up I noticed I was late.
 
Found my coat and grabbed my hat,
made the bus in seconds flat,
found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
and somebody spoke and I went into a dream
 
I heard a news today, oh boy,
four thousand holes in Blackburn Lancashire,
and though the holes were rather small,
they had to count them all,
now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall,
I'd love to turn you on.
 
 

The Fool On The Hill

 

Day after day alone on the hill,
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still,
But nobody wants to know him,
They can see that he's just a fool, 
And he never gives an answer,
But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down,
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning around.
 
Well on his way his head in a cloud,
The man of a thousand voices talking percetly loud
But nobody ever hears him,
Or the sound he appears to make,
And he never seems to notice,
But the fool on the hill...
 
Nobody seems to like him
They can tell what he wants to do.
And he never shows his feelings,
But the fool on the hill...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Strawberry Fields Forever

 

Let me take you down, 'cos I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hungabout.
Strawberry Fields forever.
 
Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
It's getting hard to be someone but it all works out, it doesn't matter
much to me.
Let me take you down, 'cos I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hungabout.
Strawberry Fields forever.
 
No one I think is in my tree, I mean it must be high or low.
That is you can't you know tune in but it's all right, that is I think
it's not too bad.
Let me take you down, 'cos I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hungabout.
Strawberry Fields forever.
 
Always, no sometimes, think it's me, but you know I know when it's a dream.
I think I know I mean a 'Yes' but it's all wrong, that is I think I disagree.
Let me take you down, 'cos I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hungabout.
Strawberry Fields forever.
Strawberry Fields forever.
 

While My Guitar gently Weeps

 

 

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping 
While my guitar gently weeps 
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping  
Still my guitar gently weeps 
I don't know why nobody told you how to unfold your love 
I don't know how someone controlled you  
They bought and sold you. 
 
I look at the world and I notice it's turning 
While my guitar gently weeps 
With every mistake we must surely be learning 
Still my guitar gently weeps  
I don't know how you were diverted 
You were perverted too 
I don't know how you were inverted 
No one alerted you. 
 
I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping 
While my guitar gently weeps 
Look at you all... 
Still my guitar gently weeps. 
 

I Will

 

 

Who knows how long I've loved you 
You know I love you still 
Will I wait a lonely lifetime 
If you want me to--I will. 
 
For if I ever saw you 
I didn't catch your name  
But it never really mattered 
I will always feel the same. 
 
Love you forever and forever 
Love you with all my heart 
Love you whenever we're together 
Love you when we're apart. 
 
And when at last I find you  
Your song will fill the air 
Sing it loud so I can hear you 
Make it easy to be near you 
For the things you do endear you to me 
You know I will 
I will. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Something

 

 

 
Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me
 
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe her now
 
Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
 
Don't want to leave her now
You know I believe her now
 
You're asking me will my love grow
I don't know, I don't know
You stick around now it may show
I don't know, I don't know
 
Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me
 
Don't want to leave her now
You know I believe her now
 
 
 
 

Here Comes The Sun

 
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right
 
Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right
 
Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right
 
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
 
Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right
It's all right
 
 
 
I've Just Seen a Face 
by Lennon, McCartney
 
I've just seen a face,
I can't forget the time or place
That we'd just met, she's just the girl for me
And I want all the world to see we've met
Na na na na na na
 
Had it been another day
I might have looked the other way
But I had never been aware
And as it is I dream of her tonight
Na na na na na na
 
CHORUS:
Falling, yes I am falling
And she keeps calling me back again
 
I have never known
The likes of this, I've been alone
And I have missed things and kept out of sight
But other girls were never quite like this
Na na na na na na
 
CHORUS
 
I've just seen a face
I can t forget the time or place
And we'd just met, she's just the girl for me
And I want all the world to see we've met
Na na na na na na
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

This Boy

 

That boy took my love away,
He'll regret it someday,
But this boy wants you back again.
 
That boy isn't good for you,
Tho' he may want you too,
This boy wants you back again.
 
Oh, and this boy would be happy,
Just to love you, buy oh my-yi-yi,
That boy won't be happy,
Till he's seen you cry-hi-hi.
 
This boy wouldn't mind the pain,
Would always feel the same,
If this boy gets you back again.
This boy. This boy
 
 
 
 
 
 

Hey Jude

 

Hey Jude, don't make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.
 
Hey Jude, don't be afraid.
You were made to go out and get her.
The minute you let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better.
 
And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain,
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders.
For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder.
 
Hey Jude, don't let me down.
You have found her, now go and get her.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.
 
So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin,
You're waiting for someone to perform with.
And don't you know that it's just you, hey Jude, you'll do,
The movement you need is on your shoulder.
 
Hey Jude, don't make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her under your skin,
Then you'll begin to make it
Better better better better better better, oh.
 
Hey Jude
 
 
 
 

Let It Be

 

 
When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.
 
And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be. Yeah
There will be an answer, let it be.
 
And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me,
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be,
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

was going through a bit of that and when I finally gave up on
thinking about writing a song about him, of course, the song
came to me." (John Lennon, 1980)

Love is a flower you got to let it, you got to let it grow

Faith in the future, outta the now
You just can't beat on those mind guerillas
Absolute elsewhere in the stones of your mind
Yeah we're playing those mind games forever
Projecting our images in space and in time
 
Yes is the answer and you know that for sure
Yes is surrender, you got to let it, you got to let it go
 
So keep on playing those mind games together
Doing the ritual dance in the sun
Millions of mind guerillas
Putting their soul power to the karmic wheel
Keep on playing those mind games forever
Raising the spirit of peace and love

Like A Rolling Stone (Bob Dylan)


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

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

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?

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

You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the
downs
When they all come down and did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you
You used to ride on chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain't it hard when you discover that
He really wasn't where it's at
After he took from you everything he could steal

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

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

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

The Answer is blowin' in the wind
 
 
 
 
how many roads must a man walk down
 before you call him a man 
how many seas must a white dove sail
 before she sleeps in the sand 
yes 'n how many times must the cannon balls fly
 before they're forever banned
 
the answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind 
the answer is blowin' in the wind
 
yes 'n How many years can a mountain exist
 before it is washed too the sea 
how many years can some people exist
 before they're allowed to be free 
how many times can a man turn his head
 and pretend that he just doesn't see
 
yes 'n how many times must a man look up
 before he can see the sky
yes 'n how many ears must one man have
 before he can hear people cry
yes 'n how many deaths will it take till he 
 knows that too many people have died

VERSE 2:
Ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe,
That light I never knowed.
Ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe,
I'm on the dark side of the road.
 
Still I wish there was somethin' you would do or say,
To try & make me change my mind and stay.
We never did too much talkin' anyway,
So don't think twice, it's all right.
 
 
VERSE 3:
It ain't no use in callin out my name, gal
Like you never done before.
It ain't no use in callin out my name, gal
I can't hear anymore
 
I'm sittin & a wonderin, walkin down the road
I once loved a woman - a child I am told
I give her my heart, but she wanted my soul
but don't think twice, it's alright.
 
 
 
VERSE 3:
So lo-ong honey babe
where I'm bound, I can't tell.
Goodbye is too good a word babe.
So I'll just say, "Fare thee well."
 
I ain't sayin you treated me unkind
You coulda done better but, I don't mind
You just kind of wasted my precious time
but don't think twice, it's alright.
 
 
 
 
HARD RAINS GONNA FALL

Oh, where have you been, my blue eyed son?
    C                                     G
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
     F                       G(III)       C
I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
     F                          G(III)      C
I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways
     F                        G(III)    C
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
     F                      G(III)     C
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
          F                         G(III)     C
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard
            C               G            C                F
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
           C       G           C    Fmaj7  C
And it's a hard rain's a gonna fall
Oh, what did you see, my blue eyed son?
Oh, what did you see, my darling young one? 
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin'
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a bleedin'
I saw a white ladder all covered with water 
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken 
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children
 
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
And it's a hard rain's a gonna fall
 
And what did you hear, my blue eyed son? 
And what did you hear, my darling young one? 
I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warnin'
Heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world
Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a blazin'
Heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin'
Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin'
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
And it's a hard rain's a gonna fall
 
 
Oh, who did you meet, my blue eyed son? 
Who did you meet, my darling young one? 
I met a young child beside a dead pony
I met a white man who walked a black dog
I met a young woman whose body was burning
I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow
I met one man who was wounded in love
I met another man who was wounded with hatred
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a gonna fall
 
 
Oh, what'll you do now, my blue eyed son? 
Oh, what'll you do now, my darling young one? 
I'm a goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a fallin' 
I'll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest
Where the people are many and their hands are all empty
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison
Where the executioner's face is always well hidden
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten
Where black is the color, where none is the number
And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it
Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin'
But I'll know my song well before I start singin'
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a gonna fall

I'm not the one you want, Babe, I'm not the one you need.
 C                      G                C              
You say you're looking for someone never weak but always

strong
      Bm             Am               Bm               Am
To protect you and defend you whether you are right or wrong
G   f                    G        
Someone to open each and every door

F       G            C
No, no, no, it ain't me, Babe,
         C         D       G
It ain't me you're looking for, Babe. 
 
Go lightly from the ledge, Babe, go lightly on the ground,
I'm not the one you want, Babe, I will only let you down.
You say you're looking for someone 
who will promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes for you, someone to close his heart
Someone who will die for you and more 
But it ain't me, Babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, Babe,
It ain't me you're looking for, Babe.
 
Go melt back in the night, Babe, 
everything inside is made of stone,
There's nothing in here moving and anyway I'm not alone
You say you're looking for someone 
Who'll pick you up each time you fall,
To gather flowers constantly and to come each time you call
A love of your life and nothing more 
But it ain't me, Babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, Babe,
It ain't me you're looking for, Babe.
 
 
 
HEY MISTER TAMBORINE MAN

  G       A               D               G
Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
         D                G               A       Asus4 A
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
  G       A               D               G
Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
        D              G                A         D   D/Dsus
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come following you
 
Verses:
Though I know that evening's empire has returned into sand
Vanished from my hand
         D               G         (D)       A      Asus4 A
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
    G         A              D             G
My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet
   D              G
I have no one to meet
         D             G            (D)      A      Asus4 A
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming
 
Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship
My senses have been stripped
My hands can't feel to grip
My toes too numb to step
Wait only for my bootheels to be wandering
I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
Into my own parade
Cast your dancing spell my way, I promise to go under it
 
Though you might hear laughing, spinning, swinging madly across the sun
It's not aimed at anyone
It's just escaping on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences facing
And if you hear vague traces of skipping reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time
It's just a ragged clown behind
I wouldn't pay it any mind
It's just a shadow you're seeing that he's chasing
 
Take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time
Far past the frozen leaves
The haunted frightened trees
Out to the windy bench
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea
Circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow
CHORUS
 
 
 
 
SHE BELONGS TO ME 
C F C C7 F C F C
 
 
She's got everything she needs, she's an artist, she don't look back
  
She's got everything she needs, she's an artist, she don't look back
She can take the dark out of the nightime and paint the daytime black
 
You will start out standing, proud to steal her anything she sees
You will start out standing, proud to steal her anything she sees
But you will wind up peeking through a keyhole down upon your knees
 
She never stumbles, she's got no place to fault
She never stumbles, she's got no place to fault 
She's nobody's child, the law can't touch her at all
 
She wears an Egyptian ring; it sparkles before she speaks
She wears an Egyptian ring; it sparkles before she speaks
She's a hypnotist collector, you are a walking antique
 
Bow down to her on Sundays, salute her when her birthday comes
Bow down to her on Sundays, salute her when her birthday comes
For Halloween buy her a trumpet, and for Christmas get her a drum

Tonight as I stand inside the rain

Everybody knows

That Baby's got new clothes

But lately I  see her ribbons and her bows
 
     Am     C    F   G  
Have fallen from her curls

She takes just like a woman yes she does
 
    C          Em   Dm   C F 
She makes love just like a woman yes she does
 
        C     Em   Dm   C F
And she aches just like a woman
 
        G                         C    
But she breaks just like a little girl.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Queen Mary, she's my friend.
Yes I believe I'll go see her again.
Noboby has to guess
That baby can't be blessed,
'Till she sees finally that she's like all the rest.
With her fog, her amphetamines, and her pearls

It was raining from the first
 
 
And I was dying of thirst
 
     C
So I came in here
 
         E7
And your long time curse hurts
 
                        F
But whats worse is this pain in here
 
G         
I can't stay in here, ain't it clear that..
 
 
 
I just can't fit.
Yes I believe it's time for us to quit.
And when we meet again,
Introduced as friends,
Please don't let on that you knew me when,
I was hungry, and it was your world.
