Bob Dylan

Intro:  / C – Cmaj7 - / Fmaj7 - - - / x3

            / C – Fmaj7 - / C - - -

 

C                        Cmaj7               Fmaj7

I've seen love go by my door, it's never been this close before

C                    Cmaj7      Fmaj7

Never been so easy or so slow

                   C                    Cmaj7            Fmaj7

I've been shooting in the dark too long, when something's not right, it's wrong

C                                 Fmaj7                    C

You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

 

C                         Cmaj7               Fmaj7

Dragon clouds so high above, I've only known careless love

C                  Cmaj7          Fmaj7

It always has hit me from below

C                                  Cmaj7          Fmaj7

But this time 'round it's more correct, right on target, so direct

C                                 Fmaj7                    C

You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

 

C                    Cmaj7                   Fmaj7

Purple clover, Queen Anne Lace, crimson hair across your face

C                            Cmaj7               Fmaj7

You could make me cry if you don't know

C                                        Cmaj7               Fmaj7

Can't remember what I was thinking of, you might be spoiling me too much, love

C                                 Fmaj7                    C

You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

 

Fmaj7                                      C

Flowers on the hillside blooming crazy

Fmaj7                                         C

Crickets talking back and forth in rhyme

D

Blue river running slow and lazy

 

Fmaj7                                          Fmaj7/G

I could stay with you forever, and never realize the time

 

C                     Cmaj7            Fmaj7

Situations have ended sad, relationships have all been bad

C                             Cmaj7         Fmaj7

Mine have been like Verlaine’s and Rimbaud

        C                     Cmaj7         Fmaj7

But there's no way I can compare all those scenes to this affair

C                                 Fmaj7                    C

You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

 

Fmaj7                                                     C

You're gonna make me wonder what I'm doing

Fmaj7                               C

Staying far behind without you

D

You're gonna make me wonder what I'm saying

Fmaj7                                              Fmaj7/G

You're gonna make me give myself a good talking to

 

    C                          Cmaj7  Fmaj7

I look for you in old Honolula, San Francisco, Ashtabula

C                              Cmaj7                  Fmaj7

You're gonna have to leave me now, I know

C                              Cmaj7                 Fmaj7

But I'll see you in the sky above, in the tall grass and the ones I love

C                                 Fmaj7                    C

You're gonna make me lonesome when you go
