A          C#m  G             Bm        A    C#m G Bm
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed.
A          C#m  G             Bm        A    C#m G Bm
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed.
E        F#m             A             *
Whatever colors you have in your mind.
E              F#m               A               *
I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine.
A          C#m  G             Bm             C#m G Bm
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed.


A           C#m   G              Bm         A C#m G Bm
Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile.
A                C#m G          Bm               A      
Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile.

C#m G Bm

E               F#m               A                *
His clothes are dirty but his his hands are clean.
E              F#m             A          *
And you're the best sting he's ever seen.
A           C#m   G              Bm          A C#m G Bm
Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile.


C#m          E              F#m        A    *               
Why wait any longer for the world to begin?
C#m                               A
You can have your cake and eat it too.
C#m          E              F#m     A     *
Why wait any longer for the one you love?
C#m                            Bm
When he's standing in front of you.

A          C#m  G             Bm             A C#m G Bm
Lay, lady, lay, lay across my big brass bed.
A           C#m   G              Bm              A
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead.

C#m G Bm

E         F#m            A              *
I long to see you in the morning light.
E         F#m           A             *
I long to reach for you in the night.
A           C#m   G              Bm              A
Stay, lady, stay, stay while the night is still ahead.

Bob Dylan rocks. The recording I have has a bit of a country
feel to it. It has a steel guitar, and besides the drum kit,
there's percussion in the background that sound like the
percussion that they used in the 1950's at Sun Records. This
give it a bit of a country feel to it.
