Mr. Tambourine Man - Bob Dylan

Refrain) 

Hey! Mr. tambourine Man, play a song for me 

I´m not sleepy and there is no place I´m going to 

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me 

In the jingle jangle morning I´ll come following you 

 

Strophe) 

Though I know that evenings empire has returned into sand 

Vanished from my hand 

Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping 

My weariness amazes me, I´m branded on my feet 

I have no one to meet 

And the ancient empty street´s too dead for dreaming 

 

 

Refrain) 

Hey! Mr. tambourine Man, play a song for me 

I´m not sleepy and there is no place I´m going to 

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me 

In the jingle jangle morning I´ll come following you 

 

Strophe) 

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling shop 

My senses have been stripped, my hands can´t feel to grip 

My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels 

To be wandering 

I´m ready to go anywhere, I´m ready for to fade 

Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way 

I promise to go under it 

 

Refrain) 

Hey! Mr. tambourine Man, play a song for me 

I´m not sleepy and there is no place I´m going to 

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me 

In the jingle jangle morning I´ll come following you 

 

Strophe) 

Though you might hear laughing, spinning, swinging madly across the sun 

It´s not aimed at anyone, it´s just escaping on the run 

And but for the sky there are no fences facing 

And if you hear vague traces of skipping reels of rhyme 

To your tambourine in time, it´s just a ragged clown behind 

I wouldn´t pay it any mind, it´s just a shadow you´re 

Seeing that he´s chasing 

 

Refrain) 

Hey! Mr. tambourine Man, play a song for me 

I´m not sleepy and there is no place I´m going to 

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me 

In the jingle jangle morning I´ll come following you 

 

Bridge) 

Then take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind 

Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves 

The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy  beach

Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow 

Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free

Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands 

With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves 

Let me forget about today until tomorrow 

 

Refrain) 

Hey! Mr. tambourine Man, play a song for me 

I´m not sleepy and there is no place I´m going to 

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me 

In the jingle jangle morning I´ll come following you ......
