I Want You

Song Author Bob Dylan Lyrics by: Bob Dylan Performer: Bob Dylan Submitted by: cazteclo
The [C]guilty undertaker sighs,
The [Em]lonesome organ grinder cries,
The [Am]silver saxophones say I should re[G]fuse you.
The [F]cracked bells and washed-out horns
[G]Blow into my face with scorn,
But it's [Am]not that way,
I wasn't born to [G]lose you.
I [C]want you, I [Em]want you,
I [Am]want you so [G]bad,
Honey, I [C]want you.

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

Now [Em]all my fathers, they've gone down
True [Am]love they've been without it.
But [Em]all their daughters put me down
'Cause [F]I don't think a[G]bout it.

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

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

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

The drunken politician leaps
Upon the street where mothers weep
And the saviors who are fast asleep,
They wait for you.
And I wait for them to interrupt
Me drinkin' from my broken cup
And ask me to
Open up the gate for you.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
Honey, I want you.

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

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

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