Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me

Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

  1. Mr. Tambourine Man
  2. Boots Of Spanish Leather
  3. Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right

Though I know that evening’s empire has returned into sand
Vanished from my hand
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
My weariness amazes me, I’m branded on my feet
I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty street’s too dead for dreaming

Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

Though you might hear laughing, spinning, swinging madly across the sun
It’s not aimed at anyone
It’s just escaping on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences facing
And if you hear vague traces of skipping reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time
It’s just a ragged clown behind
I wouldn’t pay it any mind
It’s just a shadow you’re seeing that he’s chasing

Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

And take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time
Far past the frozen leaves
The haunted frightened trees
Out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky
With one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea
Circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate
Driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow

Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

  1. Memory lane is getting crowded in this old troubadours mind by all the marvelous flashes from the past presented in these most recent blogs. Jon James who owns the Shedd Studio out here in Grand Junction, Colorado and I have made a video of Mr. Tambourine Man which chronicles in song and pictures the feel of the times I experienced while living there and some of the major personalities of The Village in the early 1960’s. Lots of pictures of a young Bob Dylan and others like Peter Paul and Mary, Simon and Garfunkel, Maria Muldaur, Tom Paxton, Phil Ochs, the regular en mass’ Sunday Hootenannies in Washington Square, The Gaslight and especially The Cafe Wha where Bobby made many of his first appearances. Even though that was over half a century ago the memories still burn bright
