Seven Days

Words and music Bob Dylan
Performed during the Rolling Thunder Revue II (1976)
Released in a live version from Tampa, Florida, Apr 21, 1976 on The Bootleg Series 1-3 (1991)
Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem

It's hard to tell from the live version what he's actually singing in the bridge. The suggestion below has the one advantage that it rhymes. If you come up with something better, give me a hint.

Go to bobdylan.com for the official lyrics, which differ on one or two places.


      Em    C                         G
Seven days, seven more days she'll be comin'
        B7             Em      Am
I'll be waiting at the station for her to arrive
                 B7                   Em
Seven more days, all I gotta do is survive.

She been gone ever since I been a child
Ever since I seen her smile, I never forgotten her eyes.
She had a face that outshine the sun in the skies.

I been good, I been good while I been waitin'
Maybe guilty of hesitatin', But I've been hangin' on
Seven more days, all that'll be gone.
        D
There's kissing in the valley,
A
Thieving in the alley,
B7                         Em
Fighting every inch of the way.
D
Trying to get a lead on
    A
somebody to beat [?] on
          B7
Well, the nights are always sadder than the day.
  B7

 day                                        Seven days
Seven days, seven more days that are connected
Just like I expected, she'll be comin' on forth,
My beautiful comrade from the north.
There's fighting in the valley,
Thieving in the alley,
Fighting every inch of the way.
Trying to get a lead on
somebody new to beat on
the nights are always sadder than the day.
