    You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go

    Bob Dylan

     

    Capo 4

     

    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
