I think of you and I wonder I'm sick of love I wish I'd never met you I'm sick of love I'm tryin' to forget you EmJust don't know what to Ddo CI'd give anything Bto be with Emyou (2) Dirt Road Blues EGonna walk down that dirt road 'Til someone lets me ride AGonna walk down that dirt road 'Til someone lets me Eride BIf I can't find my baby I'm gonna run away and Ehide Well, I been pacing round the room, hoping maybe she come back pacing round the room, hoping maybe she come back Well, I been praying for salvation Laying round in a one-room country shack Gonna walk down that dirt road, until my eyes begin to bleed Gonna walk down that dirt road, until my eyes begin to bleed 'Til there's nothing left to see 'Til the chains have been shattered and I been freed But I'm looking at my shadow, I been watching the clouds up above looking at my shadow, watching the clouds up above Rolling through the rain and hail Looking for the sunny side of love Gonna walk down that dirt road 'til everything becomes the same Gonna walk down that dirt road 'til everything becomes the same I keep on walking 'til I hear her holler out my name (3) Standing In the Doorway C /B Am [C/g] I'm walkin' through the summer nights C /B Am [C/g] the jukebox playing low C /B Am [C/g] yesterday everything was goin' too fast C /B Am [C/g] Today it's movin' too slowF Bb/f F Bb/f I got no place left to turn F [Bb/f] F F G I got nothin' left to burnC /b Am C/g Don't know if I saw you if I would kiss you or kill you C /B Am [C/g] It probably wouldn't matter to you anyhow FYou left me CstandingG in the doorway Dcryin' FI got nothin' to go back to Cnow. The light in this place is so bad Makin' me sick in the head All the laughter is just makin' me sad The stars have turned cherry red I'm strummin' on my gay guitar Smokin' a cheap cigar The ghost of our old love has not gone away Don't look it like it will anytime soon You left me standin' in the doorway cryin' Under the midnight moon. Maybe they'll get me and maybe they won't But not tonight and it won't be here There are things I could say, but I don't I know the mercy of God must be near I been ridin a midnight train Got ice water in my veins I would be crazy if I took you back It would go up against every rule You left me standin' in the doorway cryin' Sufferin' like a fool. When the last rays of daylight go down Buddy you'll roll no more I can hear the church bells ringin' in the yard I wonder who they're ringin' for I know I can't win But my heart just won't give in Last night I danced with a stranger But she just reminded me you were the one You left me standin' in the doorway cryin' In the dark land of the sun. I eat when I'm hungry drink when I'm dry And live my life on the square And even if the flesh falls off of my face I know someone will be there to care It always means so much Even the softest touch I see nothing to be gained by any explanation There's no words that need to be said You left me standin' in the doorway cryin' Blues wrapped around my head. here the chords dylan used [C/b] x22020 [C/g] 332010 [Bb/f] 113331 (4) Million Miles EmYou took a part of me that I really miss I keep asking myself how long it can go on like this You A7told yourself a lie Thats alright mama I told myself one Emtoo I B7try to get closer but I'm A7still a million miles from Emyou You took the silver, you took the gold You left me standing out in the cold People asked about you, I didn't tell them everything I knew Well I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you I'm driftin in and out of dreamless sleep Somehow my memory's in a ditch so deep Did so many things I never did intend to do And I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you I need your love so bad, turn your lamp down low *) I need every bit of it for the places that I go Sometimes I wonder, tell us just what its all coming to Well I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you Well I don't dare close my eyes and I don't dare wink Maybe in the next life I'll be able to hear myself think Feel like talking to somebody but I just don't know who Well I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you Yes the last thing you said before you hit the street Gonna find me a janitor to sweep me off my feet I said thats alright mamma you, you do what you gotta do Well I try to get closer I'm still a million miles from you Rock me pretty baby rock me all at once, Rock me for a little while Rock me for a couple of months And I'll rock you too I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you Well there's voices in the night trying to be heard I'm sitting here listening to every mind-pollutin' word I know plenty of people put me up for a day or two Yes I try to get closer but I'm still a million miles from you [F/c] [G/b] [G(add9)] F

FThe air is gettin' hotterG, there's a Frumblin' in the skies. C FI've been wadin' through the high muddy Gwaters, But the Fheat riseth in my Ceyes. EveryAm/Fday your memory goes Fdimmer, DmIt doesn't haunt me like it Cdid before. FI've been walkin' through the Gmiddle of nowhere, FTryin' to get to heaven before they Cclose the door. When I was in Missouri, they would not let me be. I had to leave there in a hurry, I only saw what they let me see. You broke a heart that loved you, Now you can seal up the book and not write anymore. I've been walkin' that lonesome valley, Tryin' to get to heaven before they close the door. People on the platforms, waitin' for the trains. I can hear their hearts a-beatin', like pendulum swingin' on chains. When you think that you've lost everything, You find out you can always lose a little more. I'm just going down the road feelin' bad, Tryin' to get to heaven before they close the door. I'm goin' down the river, down to New Orleans. They tell me everything is gonna be all right, But I don't know what all right even means. I was ridin' in a buggy with Miss Mary Jane, Miss Mary Jane got a house in Baltimore. I've been all around the world boys, I'm tryin' to get to heaven before they close the door. Gotta sleep down in the parlor, and relive my dreams. I close my eyes and I wonder, if everything is as hollow as it seems. Some trains don't pull no gamblers, No midnight ramblers like they did before. I've been to Sugartown, I shook the sugar down, Now I'm tryin' to get to heaven before they close the door (6) Till I fell In Love With You EWell my nerves are exploding And my body is tense I feel like the whole world got me pinned up against the fence I been hit too Ahard Seen too much Nothing can Eheal me now But your touch BI just don't know what I'm gonna do I was Aallright 'til I Efell in love with you Well my house is on fire Burnin' to the sky Well I thought it would rain But the clouds passed by I feel like I'm comin' To the end of my way But I know God is my shield And he won't lead me astray Still I don't know what I'm gonna do I was allright 'til I fell in love with you Boys in the street Beginnin' to play Girls like birds Flyin' away When I'm gone You will remember my name I'm gonna win my way To wealth and fame Yet I just don't know what I'm gonna do I was allright 'til I fell in love with you Well junk's pilin' up Takin' up space My eyes feel Like they're fallin' off my face Sweat fallin' down I'm starin' at the floor I'm thinkin' about that girl Who won't be back no more I just don't know what to do I was allright 'til I fell in love with you Well I'm tired of talkin' I'm tired of tryin' to explain My attempts to please you They were all in vain Tomorrow night Before the sun goes down If I'm still among the livin' I'll be Dixie bound Still I just don't know what I'm gonna do I was allright 'til I fell in love with you (7) Not Dark Yet C [F/c] C Shadows are falling and I been here all day [F/c] C It's too hot to sleep and time is running away GFeel like my G/Fsoul has C/Eturned into Csteel Am [C/g] F C I've still got the scars that the sun didn't heal GThere's not even G/Froom enough to C/Ebe anywhCere Am [C/g] F C It's not dark yet, but it's getting there Well my sense of humanity is going down the drain Behind every beautiful thing, there's been some kind of pain She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind She put down in writin' what was in her mind I just don't see why I should even care It's not dark yet, but it's getting there Well I been to London and I been to gay Paris I followed the river and I got to the sea I've been down to the bottom of a world full of lies I ain't lookin for nothin' in anyone's eyes Sometimes my burden is more than I can bear It's not dark yet, but it's getting there I was born here and I'll die here, against my will*) I know it looks like I'm movin' but I'm standin' still Every nerve in my body is so vacant and numb I can't even remember what it was I came here to get away from Don't even hear the murmur of a prayer It's not dark yet, but it's getting there (8) Cold Irons Bound Em7I'm beginning to hear voices and there's no one around now I'm all used up and the fields have turned brown I went to church on Sunday and she passed by and my love for her is taking such a long time to die Lord I'm Bdimwaist deep, A7waist deep in the Em7mist It's almost Bdimlike, almosA7t like I Em7don't exist I'm A720 miles out of Gtown, Cold Irons Em7bound The walls of pride is high and wide, can't see over to the other side It's such a sad thing to see beauty decay, it's sadder still to feel your heart torn away one look at you and I'm out of control like the universe has swallowed me whole I'm 20 miles out of town and Cold Irons bound There's too many people, too many to recall I thought some of 'em were friends of mine I was wrong about 'em all Well, the road is rocky and the hillside's mud Up over my head nothing but clouds of blood I found my world, I found my world in you but your love just hasn't proved true I'm 20 miles out of town, Cold Irons bound 20 miles out of town, Cold Irons bound Well the winds in Chicago have torn me to shreds reality has always had too many heads some things last longer than you think they will there are some kind of things you can never kill it's you and you only I'm thinking about but you can't see in, and it's hard looking out I'm 20 miles out of town, Cold Irons bound Well the fat's in the fire, and the water's in the tank and the whiskey's in the jar, and the money's in the bank I tried to love and protect you because I cared I'm gonna remember forever the joy we've shared but looking at you and I'm on my bended knee you have no idea what you do to me I'm 20 miles out of town Cold Irons bound 20 miles out of town, Cold Irons bound (9) Make me Feel My Love C [G/b] When the rain is blowing in your face Gm/B [F/a] and the whole world is on your case Fm/A [C/g] I could offer a warm embrace D9/[f#] G11 C to make you feel my love When evening shatters and the stars appear and there is no one there to dry your tears I could hold you for a million years to make you feel my love FI know you haven't made your Cmind up yet Cbut I would Fnever do you Cwrong FI've known it from the moment Cthat we met Dmno doubt in my mind where you Gbelong I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue I'd go crawling down the avenue Oh there's nothing that I wouldn't do to make you feel my love The storms are raging on the rolling sea and on the highway of regret the winds of change are blowing wild and free you ain't seen nothing like me yet I could make you happy, make your dreams come true nothing that I wouldn't do go to the ends of the earth for you to make you feel my love (10) Cant wait EmI can't wait AWait for you to change my Emmind It's late AI'm tryin to walk the Emline Well it's way past midnight And there's some people all around ASome on their way up Some on their way down EmThe air burns and I'm tryin to thAink straight CAnd I don't know B7how much longer I can Emwait I'm your man I've tried to recover the sweet love that we knew You understand That my heart can't go on beating without you Well your loveliness has wounded me I'm reeling from the blow I wish I knew what it was that keeps me loving you so I'm breathin' hard standin' at the gate And I don't know how much longer I can wait Skies are gray I'm looking for anything that will bring a happy glow Night or day It doesn't matter where I go anymore I just go 1) If I ever saw you comin' I don't know what I might do I'd like to think I could control myself But it isn't true That's how it is When things disintegrate And I don't know how much longer I can wait I'm doomed to Alove you I been rollin' through stormy Emweather I'm thinkin' Aof you And all the places we could roam Bsus4together It's mighty Emfunny The end of time has just begun Oh honey, after all these years you're still the one Well I'm strollin' through the lonely graveyard of my mind I left my life with you Somewhere back there along the line I thought somehow that I would be spared this day I don't know how much longer I can wait version 2 I can't Emwait A Wait for you to change my Emmind It's late AI'm tryin to walk the Emline *) Well it's way past midnight And there's some people all around ASome on their way up Some on their way down EmThe

could roam Bsus4together (11) Highlands E7Well my heart's in The Highlands, gentle and fair Honeysuckle blooming in the wildwood air ABluebells blazing where the Aberdeen waters E7flow Well my B7heart's in The Highlands I'm gonna Ago there when I feel good enough to E7go Windows were shaking all night in my dreams Everything was exactly the way that it seems Woke up this mornin' and I looked at the same old page Same old rat race, life in the same old cage I don't want nothin' from anyone, ain't that much to take Wouldn't know the difference between a real blonde and a fake Feel like a prisoner in a world of mystery I wish someone'd come and push back the clock for me Well my heart's in The Highlands wherever I roam That's where I'll be when I get called home The wind it whispers to the buckeyed trees in rhyme Well my heart's in The Highlands I can only get there one step at a time I'm listening to Neil Young, I gotta turn up the sound Someone's always yellin' "Turn it down" Feel like I'm driftin', driftin' from scene to scene I'm wonderin' what in the devil could it all possibly mean? Insanity is smashin' up against my soul You could say I was on anything but a roll If I had a conscience, well I just might blow my top What would I do with it anyway, maybe take it to the pawn shop My heart's in The Highlands at the break of dawn by the beautiful lake of the Black Swan Big white clouds like chariots that swing down low Well my heart's in The Highlands only place left to go I'm in Boston town in some restaurant I got no idea what I want or maybe I do but I'm just really not sure Waitress comes over, nobody in the place but me and her Well it must be a holiday, there's nobody around She studies me closely as I sit down She got a pretty face and long white shiny legs I said "Tell me what I want" She say "You probably want hard boiled eggs" I said "That's right, bring me some" She says "We ain't got any, you picked the wrong time to come" then she says "I know you're an artist, draw a picture of me" I said "I would if I could but I don't do sketches from memory" Well she's?? near she says "I'm right here in front of you or haven't you looked" I say "All right I know but I don't have my drawin' book" She gives me a napkin, she say "You can do it on that" I say "Yes I could but I don't know where my pencil is at" She pulls one out from behind her ear She says "Alright now go ahead draw me I'm stayin' right here" I make a few lines and I show it for her to see Well she takes the napkin and throws it back and says "That don't look a thing like me" I said "Oh kind miss, it most certainly does" She say "You must be joking", I said "I wish I was" She says "You don't read women authors do ya?" at least that's what I think I hear her say Well I say "How would you know, and what would it matter anyway" Well she says "Ya just don't seem like ya do", I said "You're way wrong" She says "Which ones have you read then?", I say "Read Erica Jong" She goes away for a minute, and I slide out, out of my chair I step outside back to the busy street, but nobody's goin' anywhere Well my heart's in The Highlands with the horses and hounds way up in the border country far from the towns with the twang of the arrow and the snap of the bow My heart's in The Highlands, can't see any other way to go Every day is the same thing, out the door feel further away than ever before Some things in life it just gets too late to learn Well I'm lost somewhere, I must have made a few bad turns I see people in the park, forgettin' their troubles and woes They're drinkin' and dancin', wearin' bright colored clothes All the young men with the young women lookin' so good Well I'd trade places with any of 'em, in a minute if I could I'm crossin' the street to get away from a mangy dog talkin' to myself in a monologue I think what I need might be a full length leather coat Somebody just asked me if I'm registered to vote The sun is beginnin' to shine on me But it's not like the sun that used to be The party's over and there's less and less to say I got new eyes, everything looks far away Well my heart's in The Highlands at the break of day over the hills and far away There's a way to get there, and I'll figure it out somehow Well I'm already there in my mind and that's good enough for now
