E B E You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last. B E But whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast. A B E Yonder stands your orphan with his gun, A B E Crying like a fire in the sun. Ab A B Look out the saints are comin' through Ab A B E And it's all over now, Baby Blue. B E The highway is for gamblers, better use your sense. B E Take what you have gathered from coincidence. A B E The empty-handed painter from your streets A B E Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets. Ab A B This sky, too, is folding under you Ab A B E And it's all over now, Baby Blue. B E All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home. B E All your reindeer armies, are all going home. A B E The lover who just walked out your door A B E Has taken all his blankets from the floor. Ab A B The carpet, too, is moving under you Ab A B E And it's all over now, Baby Blue. B E Leave your stepping stones behind, something calls for you. B E Forget the dead you've left, they will not follow you. A B E The vagabond who's rapping at your door A B E Is standing in the clothes that you once wore. Ab A B Strike another match, go start anew Ab A B E And it's all over now, Baby Blue.
