Went to See the Gypsy

Words and music Bob Dylan
Released on New Morning (1970)
Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem

Piano song. I shamelessly suggest a capo on the 3rd fret (sounding key Bb major).
Quite complicated, being such a simple (dull?) song.


G    Am    G   Am

Am               G
 Went to see the gypsy,
Am                  G
 Stayin' in a big hotel.
   Am                    G
He smiled when he saw me coming,
             Am                   D
And he said, "Well, well, well."
                      G
His room was dark and crowded,
Am                  G
Lights were low and dim.
        C     G/b Am     G
How are you?" he said to me,
  Am
I said it back to him.

D             G
  I went down to the lobby
Am                    G
 To make a small call out.
Am
 A pretty dancing girl was there,

And she began to shout,
       D               G
"Go on back to see the gypsy.
       Am           (Bm) G     [piano bass line: c  b  a  g]
He can move you from the rear,
C         G/b  Am   G
Drive you from your fear,
C         G/b     Am  G
Bring you through the mirror.
   C      G/b    Am G
He did it in Las Vegas,
    Am
And he can do it here."

F                             G
Outside the lights were shining
       F        F
On the river of tears,
  F                     G
I watched them from the distance
     C           Am
With music in my ears.

       D               G
I went back to see the gypsy,
       Am     D     G
It was nearly early dawn.
    Am               G
The gypsy's door was open wide
        Am
But the gypsy was gone,
         D              G
And that pretty dancing girl,
Am               G
She could not be found.
     C            G/b      Am
So I watched that sun come rising
G         Am
From that little Minnesota town,
          D                G
From that little Minnesota town.
