I Want You

Bob Dylan

4:4 Key:F

[F]The guilty undertaker sighs,
The [Am]lonesome organ grinder cries,
The [Dm]silver saxophones say I should[C] refuse you.
The [Bb]cracked bells and washed-out horns
[C]Blow into my face with scorn,
But it's [Dm]not that way,
I wasn't born to [C]lose you.
I [F]want you, I [Am]want you,
I [Dm]
want you so [C]bad,
Honey, I want [F]you.

The [F]drunken politician leaps
U[Am]pon the street where mothers weep
And the [Dm]saviors who are fast asleep,
They[C] wait for you.
And I [Bb]wait for them to interrupt
[C]Me drinkin' from that broken cup
And [Dm]ask me to
Open up the [C]gate for you.
I [F]want you, I [Am]want you,
I [Dm]want you so [C]bad,
Honey, I want [F]you.

Now [Am]all my fathers, they've gone down,
[Dm]True love they've been without it.
But [Am]all their daughters put me down
'Cause [Bb]I don't think about[C] it.

[F]Well, I return to the Queen of Spades
And [Am]talk with my chambermaid.
[Dm]She knows that I'm not afraid
To [C]look at her
[Bb]She is good to me
[C]And there's nothing she doesn't see.
She [Dm]knows where I'd like to be
[C]But it doesn't matter.
I [F]want you, I [Am]want you,
I [Dm]want you so [C]bad
Honey, I [F]want you.

[F]Now your dancing child with his Chinese suit,
He [Am]spoke to me, I took his flute.
[Dm]No, I wasn't very cute to him,
[C]Was I?
But I [Bb]did it, though, because he lied
[C]Because he took you for a ride
And [Dm]because tine was on his side
And [C]because I...
I [F]want you, I [Am]want you,
I [Dm]want you so [C]bad
Honey, I [F]want you.
