Lay Lady Lay

Bob Dylan

 GBmFAmGBmFAm
 GBmFAmGBmFAm
 Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed           
 GBmFAmGBmFAm
 Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed           
 DEmG
 Whatever colors you have in your mind
 DEmG
 I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine
 GBmFAmGBmFAm
 Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed           

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile
His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
And you're the best thing that he's ever seen
Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile

 BmDG
 Why wait any longer for the world to begin
 BmAmG
 You can have your cake and eat it too
 BmDG
 Why wait any longer for the one you love
 BmAm
When he's standing in front of you

Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead
I long to see you in the morning light
I long to reach for you in the night
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead

Take everything up two semi-tones!  That nails it.

Start with bar chord [A} fifth fret. Work your way down to [Bm] using bar chords. At the change, open [E] Bar [F#m] open [A]. This gives your hand a rest and sound real good. I like to alternate just the A to a bar chord.
