Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        C           F            G
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
 F      G            C           F
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
      C           F             G       C
In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come followin' you.
        F       G        C        F      C    F     C            F
Though I know that evening's empire has returned into sand - vanished from my hand
          C            F               G
   Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
   F        G          C          F       C          F
My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet - I have no one to meet
         C            F                G
   And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming
 F         G           C           F      C             F 
Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship. My senses have been stripped
       C              F      C            F
   My hands can't feel to grip, my toes too numb to step,
       C         F            G 
   Wait only for my boot heels to be wanderin'
     F       G           C         F      C         F
I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade - into my own parade.
           C            F                G
   Cast your dancing spell my way. I promise to go under it...
          F                G              C             F
Though you might hear laughing, spinning - swinging madly across the sun
           C        F            C           F
   It's not aimed at anyone, it's just escaping on the run
                C        F          G 
   And but for the sky, there are no fences facing
    F              G       C             F
And if you hear vague traces of skipping reels of rhyme
          C          F             C           F
   To your tambourine in time, it's just a ragged cloud behind
            C        F              C          F              G
   I wouldn't pay it any mind, it's just a shadow you're seeing that's he's chasing.
     F         G                C            F
Then take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind
             C           F       C            F
   Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
        C              F       C          F
   Their haunted frightened trees, out to the windy beach
        C           F           G 
   Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
       F             G            C            F
Yes to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
         C          F         C           F
   Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
          C        F            C                F
   With all memory and fate, driven deep beneath the waves
           C         F        G 
   Let me forget about today until tomorrow
