" encoding="UTF-8"?>
You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go
You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go
Words and music Bob Dylan
Recorded Sept 1974 and released on Blood on the Tracks (1975)
Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem
Album version (New York, Sept 1974)
Open D/E tuning
[E]I've seen love go [Emaj7]by my door
It's [A]never been this close before
[E]Never been so [Emaj7]easy or so [B11]slow.
Been [E]shooting in the [Emaj7]dark too long
When [A]somethin's not right it's wrong
E B11 E . . .
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.
Dragon clouds so high above
I've only known careless love,
It always has hit me from below.
But this time around it's more correct
Right on target, so direct,
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.
Purple clover, Queen Anne lace,
Crimson hair across your face,
You could make me cry if you don't know.
Can't remember what I was thinkin' of
You might be spoilin' me too much, love,
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go
[B11]Flowers on the hillside, bloomin' [E]crazy,
[B11]Crickets talkin' back and forth in [E]rhyme,
[F#] Blue river runnin' slow and lazy,
A'
I could stay with you forever
B'
And never realize the time.
Situations have ended sad,
Relationships have all been bad.
Mine have been like Verlaine's and Rimbaud.
But there's no way I can compare
All them scenes to this affair,
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.
Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm doin',
Stayin' far behind without you.
Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm sayin',
Yer gonna make me give myself a good talkin' to.
I'll look for you in old Honolulu,
San Francisco, Ashtabula,
Yer gonna have to leave me now, I know.
But I'll see you in the sky above,
In the tall grass, in the ones I love,
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.
Live version, Fort Worth, TX, May 16 1976
