G/B      A               D               G/B
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        D                G/B             A
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
G/B        A               D             G/B
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        D             G/B               A         [ D ]
 In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come followin' you

[Verse] 1
         G/B               A          D             G/D
Though I know the evenings empire has returned into sand
D                G/D
Vanished from my hand
        D               Em                  A
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
   G/B       A              D             G/B
My weariness amazes me, I’m branded on my feet
  D              G/B
I have no one to meet
        D             G/B         Em       A
And the ancient empty streets too dead for dreaming


(Chorus]
G/B      A               D               G/B
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        D                G/B             A
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
G/B        A             D               G/B
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        D             G/B               A         [ D ]
 In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come followin' you

[Verse] 2
G/B          A              D              G/D
Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship
   D                G/D          D                   G/D
My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip
   D                G/D        D                Em          A
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels to be wanderin'
G/B            A           D            G/D
Im ready to go anywhere I’m ready for to fade
  D           G/D             D                G/D
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way
  Em            A
I promise to go under it


(Chorus]
G/B      A               D               G/B
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        D                G/B             A
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
G/B      A               D               G/B
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        D             G/B               A         [ D ]
 In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come followin' you

[Verse] 3
           G/B                  A
Though you might hear laughing, spinning
         D                G/D
Swinging madly across the sun,
         D           G/D              D             G/D
It’s not aimed at anyone, it’s just escaping on the run
        D                  Em            A
And but for the sky, there are no fences facing
    G/B               A         D                 G/B
And if you hear vague traces of skipping reels of rhyme
        D             G/B               D            G/B
To your tambourine in time, it’s just a ragged clown behind
           D          G/B
I wouldn't pay it any mind
            D             Em               A
it’s just a shadow you're seeing that he's chasing


(Chorus]
G/B      A               D               G/B
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        D                G/B             A
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
G/B      A               D               G/B
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        D             G/B               A         [ D ]

[Verse] 4
     G/B          A                   D                 G/B
Then take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind
         D              G/B       D               G/B
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
    D                  G/B        D            G/B
The haunted frightened trees, out to the windy beach
    D                G/B      Em    A
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
        G/B               A                D               G/B
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
      D            G/B          D             G/B
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
         D          G/B          D                G/B
With all memory and fate, driven deep beneath the waves,
           D          Em         A
Let me forget about today until tommorow


(Chorus]
G/B      A               D               G/B
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        D                G/B             A        ( Asus4 A ]
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
G/B      A               D               G/B
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        D             G/B               A         [ D ]
 In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come followin' you
