Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Absolutely Sweet Marie  Bob Dylan

Well, your rail[D]roadgate, [G]you know I [A7]just can't jump [D]it.
[G]Sometimes it gets [D]so hard, you see[A7].
I'm just [D]sitting here[G] beating on[A7] my trumpet[D],       [Bm]
with [F#m]all these promises you left for[A7] me.
But where [G]are you tonight[A7], sweet Marie [D]?

Well, I w[D]aited for you[G] when I [A7]was half[D] sick.
Yes I w[G]aited for you w[D]hen you hated [A7]me.
Well, I w[D]aited for you[G] inside of the [A7]frozen tra[D]ffic     [Bm]
When you [F#m]knew I had some other place to be[A7].
Now, where [G]are you tonight[A7], sweet Marie [D]?

Well, [Bb]anybody can be just like [D]me, obviously,
But t[Bb]hen, now again, not too many can be like you[D], fortunately.[A7]
Well, six white h[D]orses [G]that you d[A7]id prom[D]ise me
Where [G]finaly delivered down[D] to the penitentia[A7]ry.
But to [D]live outside the [G]law, you mus[A7]t be hon[D]est.    [Bm]
I [F#m]know you always say that you agree, [A7]
But w[G]here are you tonight[A7], sweet Marie [D]?
Now, I been in [D]jail[G] when [A7]all my mail[D] showed
That a [G]man can't give his address [D]out to bad compa[A7]ny,
And now I [D]stand here l[G]ookin' at your [A7]yellow rail[D]road      [Bm]
In the [F#m]ruins of your balcony,[A7]
Wond'ring where[G] are you tonight,[A7] sweet Marie [D]?
Well I don't [Bb]know how it happened,But the riverboat captain,[D]he knows my fate
But [Bb]ev'rybody else, even yourself, they're just [D]gonna have to wait.[A7]
Well, I got the [D]fever[G] down [A7]in my pock[D]ets,
The [G]Persian drunk[D]ard, he follows [A7]me.
Yes, I can t[D]ake him to your [G]house, but I [A7]can't unlock[D] it.    [Bm]
You [F#m]see, you forgot to leave me with the key.[A7]
Oh, [G]where are you tonight[A7], sweet Marie [D]?
