Dirty Lies

Written by Bob Dylan

Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem (lyrics from “The Wicked Messenger” #1489 via Olof's files)


Bm           Bm/a G    F#
Sometime she said  I'm slow
Bm            Bm/a             G           F#
 She said it about me but it's too soon to know
Bm         Bm/a     G         F#
Don't mind leaving, wondering why
Bm [n.c.]
Whosoever told it, told a dirty lie

Well, I'll tell you one more to
Take what is you with you when you go
Now I'll tumble, tumble and die
Whosoever told it, told a dirty lie
G
Already seen your dirty mate
Bm
Sure find it harder to concentrate
G
I'll be beloved, times too slow
F#                                  G        F#
But make sure you take her with you when you go
I'll love it and leave it, the sun go down
Pray for the rain for miles around
I'll never leave it to wonder why
Whosoever told you, told a dirty lie

[instrumental verses]
Oh, they time you and I'm telling you
I'd be watching, baby no matter what you do
And I'll leave alone, you're far too slow
Just make sure you take her with you when you go
I want to leave, my feet's soaking wet
I long to leave but I ain't found you yet
And I know baby, telling you why
Whosoever told me, told a dirty lie
