<b>Mr. Tambourine Man - Bob Dylan</b>
<br>Chorus
<br>
<br>Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
<br>I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to
<br>Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
<br>In the jingle jangle morning I'll come following you
<br>
<br>
<br>Though I know the evening's empire has returned into sand
<br>Vanished from my hand
<br>Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
<br>My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet
<br>I have no one to meet
<br>And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming...
<br>
<br>->CHORUS
<br>
<br>Take me on a trip on your magic swirling ship
<br>My senses have been stripped
<br>My hand's can't feel to grip
<br>My toes too numb to step
<br>Wait only for my bootheels to be wandering
<br>I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade
<br>Into my own parade
<br>Cast your dancing spell my way, I promise to go under it...
<br>
<br>->CHORUS
<br>
<br>Though you might hear laughing, spinning, swinging madly across the sun
<br>It's not aimed at anyone
<br>It's just escaping on the run
<br>And but for the sky there are no fences facing
<br>And if you hear vague traces of skipping reel rhyme
<br>To your tambourine in time
<br>It's just a ragged clown behind
<br>I wouldn't pay it any mind
<br>It's just a shadow you're seeing that he's chasing
<br>
<br>->CHORUS
<br>
<br>Take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind
<br>Down the foggy ruins of time
<br>Far past the frozen leaves
<br>The haunted frightened trees
<br>Out to the windy beach
<br>Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
<br>Yes to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
<br>Silhouetted by the sea
<br>Circled by the circus sands
<br>With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
<br>Let me forget about today until tomorrow...
<br>
<br>->CHORUS
