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


G            A              D              G
Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship,
   D                G            D                   G
My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip,
   D                G          D           G
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels
      A         A
To be wonderin'.
    G           A             D            G
I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
  D         G                 D                G
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way,
  Em            A          A
I promise to go under it.
