Words and music Bob Dylan
Released on Another Side of Bob Dylan (1964), and in a live
version on Live 1964 (2004)
Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem
Album version
The little figure that sets off the intro is used here and there where
there is a transition from G to C. In the third verse the xxx330 chord
formation (called G' in the chord table) is used for the Gs that start
each line in the first part of the verse.
The strumming through the rest of the intro is of course only an
approximation, as to which strings sound at which particular moment.
Chords:
the C/D chord marked with a * is basically the same, only that the A
string is sounding:

 Gypsy...

Gypsy gal, you got me swallowed
I have fallen far beneath
Your pearly eyes, so fast an' slashing
An' your flashing diamond teeth
The night is pitch black, come an' make my
Pale face fit into place, ah, please!
Let me know, babe, I am nearly drowning
If it's you my lifelines trace.
G' C G
I been wond'rin' all about me
G' C G
Ever since I seen you there
G' C G
On the cliffs of your wildcat charms I'm riding
G' C G
I know I'm 'round you but I don't know where
You have slayed me, you have made me
I got to laugh halfways off my heels
I got to know, babe, will you surround me
So I can know if I'm really real.
