You're a Big Girl Now  Bob Dylan

Album version
[Bm] Our conversation[Am] was short and sweet
[Bm] It nearly swept me[Am] off-a my feet.
And I'm [G]back in the rain, oh[C]
And you are on dry [G]land,[C]
You made it there some[Am]how
Bm Am D7/F# G . . . D/F# . . .
You're a big girl now.
Original New York version
Open E/D tuning

[Emaj7]Our conversation [B11] was short and sweet
[Emaj7]It nearly swept me [B11] off-a my feet.

And I'm back in the rain, mm - mm

You made it there somehow
Emaj7 B11 E(iv) . . A | E B(vii) . . |
You're a big girl now.
Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence,
He's singin' his song for me at his own expense
And I'm just like that bird, oh, oh,
Singin' just for you, mm-mm.
I hope that you can hear,
Hear me singin' through these tears.
Love is so simple, to quote a phrase,
You've known it all the time, I'm learnin' it these days .
Oh, I know where I can find You, oh, oh,
In somebody's room. m-mm
It's a price I have to pay
You're a big girl all the way.
Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast
Oh, but what a shame that all we've shared can't last.
I can change, I swear, mm-mm
See what you can do, mm-mm.
I can make it through,
You can make it too.
A change in the weather can be extreme
But it ain't like changing horses in midstream
I'm going out of my mind, mm-mm
With a pain that stops and starts, mm-aa
Like a corkscrew to my heart
Ever since we've been apart.

Rolling Thunder Revue live version (1976)
Tabbed from Fort Worth, TX May 16, 1976; the Hard Rain
version from Fort Collins a week later is virtually identical.
Two guitars are prominent: Dylan's and Steven Soles' (according to
Trev Gibb, who got this information from David Mansfield)
1st guitar: Capo 4th fret (sounding key: E major); 2nd guitar no capo
Chords (some of these suggestions incorporate the tones in the bass
and other instruments as well):
The second guitar (probably Dylan) plays these chords without a capo
(and correspondingly the other chords a major third higher than noted
in the tab: E, B, A, and F#m):
(one verse intro)
[Cmaj7]Our conversation [G11] was short and sweet
[Cmaj7]It nearly knocked [G11]me right off-a my feet.
And I'm [C]back in the rain, [C]oh[G] [F]
And you are on dry [C]land,[C] [G] [F]
You made it there [Dm]somehow[G]
C F F *)
You're a big girl now.

 You're a now
 big girl
