Mr. Tambourine Man lyrics

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 followin' you

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 followin' you

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship
My senses have been stripped, my hands can't feel to grip
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels
To be wanderin'

I'm ready to go anywhere
I'm ready for to fade into my own parade
Cast your dancing spell my way
I promise to go under it

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 followin' you

Though you might hear laughin'
Spinnin', swingin' madly through the sun
It's not aimed at anyone, it's just escapin' on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences facin'

And if you hear vague traces of skippin' 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 seein' 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 followin' you

Then take me disappearin' 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 followin' you
