The chords to the verses are pretty simple, and so are the chords to the first two lines of the bridge, but the second two lines are in a minor key (I think) and I'm having trouble figuring them out. The lines are

shadows dance upon the wall
shadows that seem to know it all

Can anyone help?

It is a truly fine song.

Thanks

For the record, here are the lyrics:

This Dream Of You
(Bob Dylan)

How long can I stay in this nowhere café
'fore night turns into day
I wonder why I'm so frightened of dawn
All I have and all I know
Is this dream of you
Which keeps me living on

There's a moment when all old things
Become new again
But that moment might have come and gone
All I have and all I know
Is this dream of you
Which keeps me living on

I look away, but I keep seeing it
I don't want to believe, but I keep believing it
Shadows dance upon the wall
Shadows that seem to know it all

Am I too blind to see, is my heart playing tricks on me
I'm lost in the crowd
All my tears are gone
All I have and all I know
Is this dream of you
Which keeps me living on

Everything I touch seems to disappear
Everywhere I turn you are always here
I'll run this race until my earthly death
I'll defend this place with my dying breath

From a cheerless room in a curtained gloom
I saw a star from heaven fall
I turned and looked again but it was gone
All I have and all I know
Is this dream of you
Which keeps me living on

Dear 'Peace'

Thanks! I feel much better knowing that it was that Bm 7-5 chord that threw me!

I was having the same trouble - the old boy has got really crafty with chords on some of his later stuff. They sound greatt but I have trouble finding them - like Spirit on the water. Lovely stuff.

Oho--I just realized what the "-5" in "Bm7-5" must mean. In looking at the Swedish tab & chords I thought it meant the fifth (F#) was in the bass. Actually, it must mean flat-fifth, i.e. F natural. I've been playing a Bdim7 because I could hear the F natural loud and clear on the recording at that point, not an F#. But that means I've been sticking an A flat in there where Dylan has an A natural.

Matter of fact, you could probably get away with any of several chords there: Bm7-5, Bdim7, or F major (sliding down one fret to the E major next). Dylan really is getting jazzy with his variation on the standard circle of fifths. From the E (or E7) he goes to Am, then kind of implies another E7 by walking the bass down (G#, G, F#) but leaves it out and goes to the A7 which gets him back to D7. Sly!
