Here's to the lone and wayward son!
For to love is to live, for to roll like a [G]rolling [C]stone
I [D]fell in with [Am]men who were [G]wicked in the [C]end
As we [Bb]roll, by and [A]by, so these [F]crimes multi[C]ply
Yeahh[B7]hhhhhh[E]
[Am]See this wayward [D]son, boy
[G]Will you live to ru[F#7]n another da[B]yyyyyy[A]y
[E]Dark is the heart and [C]dreams [G]will [F#]come
To the [Bm]swift and the [D]dead, to the [A]poor and the [G]wayward [C]son
My [D]love can't you [Am]see, just what's [G]happening to [C]me
All I [Bb]touch turns to [A]sand slipping [F]down through my [C]hand
Yeahh[B7]hhhhhh[E]

Now a [Bm]serpent spoke to me[G]
F C D (see tab A below lyrics)
He was hanging from a pale and nameless tree
On the bla[A]de, where the [D]guys are all ins[A]ane
His [C]voice was like the [Bb]wind that blows
A [G#]thousand crows all [D#]rising into fl[Bb]ight
Upon the n[G#]ight, [F#]alr[E]ight[D]
Woah, look out! ---> (see Tab B for solo and rhythm guitars)
[---]  
So I [Bm]left him in his tr[G]ee
Score some [F]horses, took the [C]road that runs in [D]circles to the se[A]a
But the [D]snake he followed m[A]e
So I [C]hopped a ship, a [Bb]silver seed
Past [G#]galaxies and [D#]stars with speed
To [Bb]end this planet's [G#]world's [F#]a... [E]void (sorry, hard to determine lyrics here)
