Don't Fall Apart on Me Tonight

Bob Dylan

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


 CG/bF
  Just a minute before you leave, girl,
 CG/bF
  Just a minute before you touch the door.
 CG/bF
  What is it that you're trying to achieve, girl?
 CG/bF
  Do you think we can talk about it some more?
 DmAm
You know, the streets are filled with vipers  
 DmAm
Who've lost all ray of hope,
C/g
You know, it ain't even safe no more
 G
In the palace of the Pope.

 CG/bF
 Don't fall apart on me tonight,
 CG/bF
 I just don't think that I could handle it.
 CG/bF
 Don't fall apart on me tonight,
 DmEm
 Yesterday's just a memory,
F C/g
Tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be
G F/g
And I need you, yeah.

Come over here from over there, girl,
Sit down here. You can have my chair.
I can't see us goin' anywhere, girl.
The only place open is a thousand miles away and I can't take you there.
I wish I'd have been a doctor,
Maybe I'd have saved some life that had been lost,
Maybe I'd have done some good in the world
'Stead of burning every bridge I crossed.

Don't fall apart on me tonight,
I just don't think that I could handle it.
Don't fall apart on me tonight,
Yesterday's just a memory,
Tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be
And I need you, oh, yeah.

I ain't too good at conversation, girl,
So you might not know exactly how I feel,
But if I could, I'd bring you to the mountaintop, girl,
And build you a house made out of stainless steel.
But it's like I'm stuck inside a painting
That's hanging in the Louvre,
My throat start to tickle and my nose itches
But I know that I can't move.

Don't fall apart on me tonight,
I just don't think that I could handle it.
Don't fall apart on me tonight,
Yesterday's gone but the past lives on,
Tomorrow's just one step beyond
And I need you, oh, yeah.

 BbF
 Who are these people who are walking towards you?
 C
Do you know them or will there be a fight?
 BbF
With their humorless smiles so easy to see through,
 C
Can they tell you what's wrong from what's right?
 FC
 Do you remember St. James Street
 FC
 Where you blew Jackie P.'s mind?
 FC
You were so fine, Clark Gable would have fell at your feet
 BbFG11G
And laid his life on the line.   

Let's try to get beneath the surface waste, girl,
No more booby traps and bombs,
No more decadence and charm,
No more affection that's misplaced, girl,
No more mudcake creatures lying in your arms.
What about that millionaire with the drumsticks in his pants?
He looked so baffled and so bewildered
When he played and we didn't dance.

Don't fall apart on me tonight,
I just don't think that I could handle it.
Don't fall apart on me tonight,
Yesterday's just a memory,
Tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be
And I need you, yeah.
