Lonesome River Edge

Performed by Bob Dylan on the so-called Banjo tape, recorded in the basement of Gerde's folk city Feb 8, 1963, with Happy Traum
Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem

The guitar is slightly low on this one, perhaps as much as a semitone.
It's hard to tell if the Em on "good-bye" is a mistake or just an intentional short Em like the at "lips".


I held her hand
     C           G
on a cobblestone corner,
             Em G
I kissed her lips
       C     G
by the river bridge
           (Em) G
I said good-bye
      C            G
with a night train rolling
              C D
on a lonesome day
                C     G
by the lonesome river edge.

No, that's not the one I was thinking of.
