/ Bob Dylan / Love and Theft (2001) / Bye and Bye guitar tab

Bye And Bye
Words by Bob Dylan. Music based on 'Having Myself a Time' by Leo Robin & Ralph Rainger,
sung by Billie Holiday (thanks to Trev for notifying me)
Released on Love And Theft (2001)
Tabbed by Eyolf ěstrem

For this song I believe in a capo on the 1st fret, at least in a solo acoustic tab,
since the uncapoed version would be virtually unplayable. Both versions are included,
though, with a list of suggested chords at the end.

Eo     E7
By and by,
                         A  .  .  .  | .  .  Co
I'm breathing a lover's sigh.
      .   Bm7               Bbo
Well, I'm sitting on my watch
         Bm7   E7
So I can be on time
    A7/g           D/f#
I'm singing love's praises
     Dm/f         E
With sugar-coated rhyme.
Eo     E7
By and by,
                      A  .  .  .  | .  .  Co
On you I'm casting my eye.

    .            E7
I'm paintin' the town,
Swingin' my partner around
Well, I know who I can depend on,
I know who to trust
I'm watchin' the roads,
I'm studying the dust
I'm paintin' the town
                  A   /c#  Co  E7/b   A  .  G#7
Making my last go round.


      .   C#7                G#7
Well, I'm scuffling, and I'm shuffling
       C#7          A7   G#7
And I'm walking on briars
C#              G#7
 I'm not even acquainted
       C# G#/b#   E7/b .  E7
with my own     desires

I'm roamin' slow,
I'm doing all I know.
I'm telling myself
I've found true happiness,
That I've still got a dream
that hasn't been repossessed.
I'm roamin' slow
Going where the wild roses grow.

                  Well, the....

Well, the future for me
Is already a thing of the past
You were my first love
And you will be my last.

Papa gone mad,
Mama, she's feeling sad.
Well, I'm gonna baptize you in fire
So you can sin no more
I'm gonna establish my rule
Through civil war,
Gonn' make you see
Just how loyal and true a man can be!
