LAY LADY LAY by Bob Dylan                    


[Verse 1]

A             C#m  G            Bm           A C#m  G  Bm 
Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed
A              C#m   G             Bm            A  C#m G Bm  
Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed
E               F#m                  A
Whatever colours you have in your mind 
E                    F#m    A
I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine
A          C#m   G             Bm           A  C#m  G  Bm
Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed


[Verse 2]

 A           C#m    G             Bm         A   C#m   G   Bm
Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
  A                 C#m    G             Bm          A   C#m   G   Bm
Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile
C#m                              A     
His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
C#m                                   A
And you're the best thing that he's ever seen
  A           C#m    G             Bm        A   C#m   G   Bm
Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile 


[Bridge]
 
C#m                                E    F#m           A
Why wait any longer for the world to begin
C#m                                       Bm    A
You can have your cake and eat it too
C#m                         E        F#m        A
Why wait any longer for the one you love
              C#m              Bm
When he's standing in front of you


[Verse 3]

 A         C#m    G            Bm         A   C#m   G   Bm
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
 A           C#m    G               Bm              A   C#m   G   Bm
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead
 C#m                        A
I long to see you in the morning light
 C#m                     A
I long to reach for you in the night
 A           C#m     G              Bm             
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead


[Outro]
 
A     C#m     G    Bm     A     Bm     C#m     D     A
