First Note: A Intro:
|: A D (E D) A D E :|

D             E               A             D
Hey! Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me.
          A               D    Bm       E
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
D             E             A             D
Hey! Mister Tambourine Man, play a song for me.
         A             D               Bm    E   A   (D   A)
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come following you.

         D                E          A                D
Though I know that evenin's empire has returned into the sand.
A                D             A               D
Vanished from my hand, left me blindly here to stand
    Bm          E
but still not sleeping!
    D         E             A            D      A             D
My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet I have no one to meet.
         A               D          Bm       E
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.

D          E             A             D
Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship
    A                D          A                     D
My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel the grip,
    A                D
my toes too numb to step,
      A            D       Bm    E
wait only for my boot heels to be wandering
      D          E             A             D      
I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
   A            D
Into my own parade
            A               D       Bm          E
Cast your dancing spell my way, I promise to go under it

            D                   E                A               D
Though you might hear laughin' spinnin' swingin' madly across the sun
          A          D                A             D
It's not aimed at anyone, it's just escapin' on the run
    A          D          Bm          E
And but for the sky there are no fences facin'
    D                  E         A                D
And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme
          A            D                A               D
To your tambourine in time, it's just a ragged clown behind
            A          D      
I wouldn't pay it any mind,
             A             D    Bm         E
It's just a shadow you're seein' that he's chasing

       D          E                   A                D
Then take me dissapearin' through the smoke rings of my mind
          A               D       A                D
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
      A                   D       A             D
The haunted, frightended trees out to the windy beach
      A                D      Bm    E
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
          D                E               A               D      
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand wavin' free
      A             D          A               D
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
          A          D          A               D
With all memory and fate drive deep beneath the waves
       A             D    Bm      E
Let me forget about today until tomorrow
