Bye and Bye  Bob Dylan

For this song I believe in a capo on the 1st fret, at least in a solo
acoustic tab, since the uncapoed version would be virtually
unplayable. Both versions are included, though, with a list of
suggested chords at the end.
A . Bbo . Bm7 . E E7
A . Bbo . Bm7 . E
Eo E7
By and by,
A . . . | . . Co
I'm breathing a lover's sigh.
. Bm7 Bbo
Well, I'm sitting on my watch
So I can [Bm7]be on [E7]time
I'm [A7/G]singing love's [D/F#]praises
With [Dm/F]sugar-coated [E]rhyme.
Eo E7
By and by,
A . . . | . . Co
On you I'm casting my eye.
. E7
I'm paintin' the town,
Swingin' my partner around
Well, I know who I can depend on,
I know who to trust
I'm watchin' the roads,
I'm studying the dust
I'm paintin' the town
A /C# Co E7/B A . G#7
Making my last go round.
. C#7 G#7
Well, I'm scuffling, and I'm shuffling
And I'm[C#7] walking on b[A7]riars[G#7]
[C#] I'm not even ac[G#7]quainted
C# G#/B# E7/B . E7
with my own desires *)
I'm roamin' slow,
I'm doing all I know.
I'm telling myself
I've found true happiness,
That I've still got a dream
that hasn't been repossessed.
I'm roamin' slow
Going where the wild roses grow.
 
 A Co E9

 Well, the....

Well, the future for me
Is already a thing of the past
You were my first love
And you will be my last.
Papa gone mad,
Mama, she's feeling sad.
Well, I'm gonna baptize you in fire
So you can sin no more
I'm gonna establish my rule
Through civil war,
Gonn' make you see
Just how loyal and true a man can be!
(instrumental, fade out)
*) As You Like It, Act 1, Scene 1, Line 41:
If with myself I hold intelligence,
Or have acquaintance with mine own desires (...)
this is spoken by Rosalind who, about twenty lines earlier says "oh how full of briers is this working-day world". she and Celia then discuss the nature of the briers and walking on paths lined with such briers for the next ten lines or so (found and submitted by Nick Dorman).

Chords:
Here's a tab of what the bass plays during the bridge. I've written it
relative to the capo of the rest of the tab, for clarity. The bass
obviously doesn't use a capo, though, and the (*) denotes the tone
right below the capo... (i.e. the open, lowest string).
