I'm Your Teenage Prayer

Words and music Bob Dylan (I presume)
Sung (if that's what it's called) by Dylan and the Band in the Basement, 1967
Tabbed and transcribed by Eyolf Østrem

Capo 2nd fret (sounding key D major)

Words in parentheses ( ) are the mostly spoken interjections of the Band (is it Richard Manuel?).
Words in brackets [ ] are Dylan's spoken words.
I haven't written out the laughter, because it's all over the place.
