NOTES

According to Eyolf Østrem (dylanchords.info) Bob Dylan played this in open A tuning (E A C# e a c#) with the 
capo on 3 on Times They are a Changin’ (1964), which puts it in the key of C. In some live recordings Dylan 
seems to play it in standard tuning in G (relative to capo). 

This is a alternative version to play in standard tuning in C without a capo. Some of the other tabs on UG 
suggest using Am instead of Em/B, which sounds fine but I think Em/B is closer to the original, with the 
bass line descending from the C note to the B. 

The alternative chords and shapes given above can be used to add variation. Another simple variation is to 
walk up to the C chord on the 5th string via a and b (open and 2nd frets) on the first two syllables of the 
first line. 

During the harmonica parts between verses Bob plays similar chord progressions to those in the verses. 

I will post another alternative tab of this song in drop D which sounds better to my ear, and closer to the 
album recording. 



C      C          

         C                   Em/B
Down the street the dogs are barkin'
        F/A              C     C
And the day is a-gettin' dark
       C/G              Em/B           
As the night comes in a-fallin'
    F/A                  G     C   Cmaj7/B
The dogs will lose their bark
        C                 Em/B
And the silent night will shatter
         F/A              C      C
From the sounds inside my mind
       C *          Em/B
As I'm one too many mornings
       F/C       G/D   C      Cmaj7/B
And a thousand miles behind



         C                Em/B
From the crossroads of my doorstep,
    F/A          C     C
My eyes start to fade.
      C/G               Em/B    
And I turn my head back to the room
         F/A             G      C   Cmaj7/B
Where my love and I have laid.
      C                Em/B
And I gaze back to the street
    F/A              C      C
The sidewalk and the sign.
       C *          Em/B
As I'm one too many mornings
       F/C       G/D      C      Cmaj7/B
And a thousand miles behind



        C                Em/B
It's a  restless, hungry feeling
           F/A            C     C
That don't mean no one no good.
     C/G            Em/B  
When everything I'm saying,
        F/A            G      C     Cmaj7/B
You can say it just as good.
C                  Em/B
You are right from your side,
    F/A             C      C
And I am right from mine.
                C *          Em/B
We’re both just one too many mornings
       F/C       G/D      C      Cmaj7/B
And a thousand miles behind
