Just like Tom Thumb's Blues  Bob Dylan

In 6/8 time, a strange little waltz
When you're [G]lost in the rain in Jua-[C]rez, and it's Easter time [G]too
And you're [G]gravity fails and nega-[C]tivity don't pull you [G]through
Don't [C]put on any airs when you're down on Rue Morgue Ave-[G]nue
They got some [D]hungry women there, they'll [C]really make a mess outa [G]you

Now if you [G]see St. Annie, please [C]tell her 'thanks a [G]lot'
I [G]cannot move, my [C]fingers are all in a [G]knot
I [C]don't have the strength to get up and take another [G]shot
And my best [D]friend my doctor won't even [C]say what it is I [G]got

Sweet Me-[G]linda, the peasants call [C]her the goddess of [G]gloom
She [G]speaks good English and she in-[C]vites you up into her [G]room
And you're [C]so kind and careful not to go to her too [G]soon
And she [D]takes your voice, and leaves you [C]howling at the [G]moon
Up [G]on Housing Project Hill, it's either [C]fortune or [G]fame
You must [G]pick one or the other tho' [C]neither of them are to be what they [G]claim
If you're [C]looking to get silly, you better go back to from where you [G]came
Because the [D]cops don't need you, and [C]man they expect the [G]same
Now [G]all the authorities, they [C]just stand around and [G]boast
How they [G]blackmailed the Sergeant-at-[C]Arms into leaving his [G]post
And [C]picking up Angel, who just arrived here from the [G]coast
Who looked [D]so fine at first, but left [C]looking just like a [G]ghost
I [G]started out on Burgundy, but [C]soon hit the harder [G]stuff
Every-[G]body said they'd stand be-[C]hind me when the game got [G]rough
But the [C]joke was on me, there was nobody even there to [G]bluff
I'm goin' [D]back to New York City, I do be-[C]lieve I've had e-[G]nough
