Chorus:
Gb        Ab               Db               Gb  
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        Db                Gb               Ab         
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Gb          Ab               Db             Gb  
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
       Db             Gb                 Ab         Db   
In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Verse:
         Gb                 Ab          Db             Gb  
Though i know the evenings empire has returned into sand
Db                Gb  
Vanished from my hand
        Db               Gb         Ebm        Ab
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
   Gb         Ab             Db             Gb  
My weeriness amazes me, im branded on my feet
Db                Gb  
I have no one to meet
        Db             Gb           Ebm       Ab 
And the ancient empty streets too dead for dreaming

Chorus:
Gb        Ab               Db               Gb  
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        Db                Gb               Ab         
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Gb          Ab               Db             Gb  
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
       Db             Gb                 Ab         Db   
In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Verse:
Gb            Ab              Db              Gb  
Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship
   Db                Gb            Db                   Gb  
My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip
   Db                Gb          Db                Gb  
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels 
      Ab
To be wanderin'
Gb              Ab           Db            Gb  
Im ready to go anywhere im ready for to fade
  Db           Gb               Db                Gb  
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way
Ebm              Ab
I promise to go under it

Chorus:
Gb        Ab               Db               Gb  
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        Db                Gb               Ab         
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Gb          Ab               Db             Gb  
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
       Db             Gb                 Ab         Db   
In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Verse:
           Gb                    Ab
Though you might hear laughing, spinning 
         Db                Gb  
Swinging madly across the sun,
        Db           Gb               Ebm            Gb  
Its not aimed at anyone, its just escaping on the run
        Db                  Gb      Ebm     Ab
And but for the sky, there are no fences facing
    Gb                 Ab         Db                 Gb  
And if you hear vague traces of skipping reels of rhyme
        Db             Gb                Db            Gb  
To your tambourine in time, its just a ragged clown behind
           Db          Gb                Db
I wouldn't pay it any mind, its just a shadow you're
Ebm               Ab
Seeing that he's chasing

Chorus:
Gb        Ab               Db               Gb  
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        Db                Gb               Ab         
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Gb          Ab               Db             Gb  
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
       Db             Gb                 Ab         Db   
In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

Verse:
     Gb             Ab                  Db                 Gb  
Then take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind
         Db              Gb         Db               Gb  
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves 
Db                       Gb          Db            Gb  
Ther haunted frightened trees, out to the windy beach
    Db                Gb        Ebm    Ab
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
        Gb                 Ab                Db               Gb  
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
      Db            Gb            Db             Gb  
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
         Db          Gb            Db                Gb   
With all memory and fate, driven deep beneath the waves,
           Db          Ebm         Ab 
Let me forget about today until tommorow

Chorus:
Gb        Ab               Db               Gb  
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
        Db                Gb               Ab         
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Gb          Ab               Db             Gb  
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
       Db             Gb                 Ab         Db   
In the jingle-jangle morning I'll come followin' you.

  1. Any way you can display chords for left-handed players?

  2. Does anyone know the strumming pattern? It would be really helpful. Thanks.

  3. Can you edit the line “its just escaping on the run” I think its supposed to be an F not Gm.

  4. Christiaan

    This sounds great, and is very easy to play!

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
