Words and Music by Bob Dylan
   From his `66 Album "Blonde On Blonde"

G   / G    / C/G  D/ G C/G / G   /

          G                          C                   D               G      C/G  G
Ain't it just like the night to play tricks when you're tryin' to be so quiet ?
                                     C             D         G     C/G  G
 We sit here stranded, though we're all doing our best to deny it
         D                                              G     C/G  G
 And Louise holds a handful of rain, tempting you to defy it
         C                         G
 Lights flicker from the opposite loft
     C                             G
 In this room the heat pipes just cough
       C                          G
 The country music station plays soft
                                            D   Dsus4  D
 But there's nothing really nothing to turn off
          G            C   D    G       C/G  G
 Just Louise and her lover so entwined
            C              G/B      D         G     C/G
 And these visions of Johanna that conquer my mind.

/ G   / C  D / G  C/G  / G  C/G  /

C/G            G                     C               D             G         C/G  G
 In the empty lot where the ladies play blindman's bluff with the key chain
                                C            D                G        C/G   G
 And the all-night girls they whisper of escapades out on the D-train
 We can hear the night watchman click his flashlight
                                               G  C/G   G
 Ask himself if it's him or them that's really insane
       C                              G
 Louise she's all right she's just near
          C                          G
 She's delicate and seems like the mirror
               C                                G
 But she just makes it all too concise and too clear
                     D   Dsus4 D
 That Johanna's not here
       G                   C            D            G     C/G   G
 The ghost of electricity howls in the bones of her face
              C             C/B           D        G     C/G
 Where these visions of Johanna have now taken my place.

  /G    /C  D /G  C/G /G  C/G  /

 C/G   G                   C                 D    G   C/G  G
 Now, little boy lost, he takes himself so seriously
                             C              D      G   C/G  G
 He brags of his misery, he likes to live dangerously
 And when bringing her name up
                                 G  C/G  G
 He speaks of a farewell kiss to me
       C                G      C                  G
 He's sure got a lotta gall to be so useless and all
          C                   G                     D   Dsus4  D
 Muttering small talk at the wall while I'm in the hall
 Oh, how can I explain ?
  C       D          G   C/G  G
 It's so hard to get on
             C            C/B              D            G    C/G
 And these visions of Johanna they kept me up past the dawn.

/G    /C  D /G  G/G /G  C/G  /

C/G              C             D          G   C/G  G
 Inside the museums, Infinity goes up on trial
                                C            D            G      C/G  G
 Voices echo this is what salvation must be like after a while
 But Mona Lisa musta had the highway blues
                              G     C/G  G
 You can tell by the way she smiles
          C                    G
 See the primitive wallflower frieze
           C                     G
 When the jelly-faced women all sneeze
           C                           G
 Hear the one with the mustache say, "Jeeze
                  D      Dsus4   D
 I can't find my knees."
      G                     C             D           G    C/G   G
 Oh, jewels and binoculars hang from the head of the mule
             C            G/B               D            G     C/G
 But these visions of Johanna, they make it all seem so cruel.

/G   /C  D /G   C/G /G  C/G /

C/G    G                        C                 D          G            C/G  G
 The peddler now speaks to the countess who's pretending to care for him
                                             C               D             G    
 Saying, "Name me someone that's not a parasite and I'll go out and say a prayer for
      C/G  G 
 But like Louise always says "Ya can't look at much, can ya man."
 As she, herself prepares for him
       C                          G
 And Madonna, she still has not showed
              C               G
 We see this empty cage now corrode
            C                          G
 Where her cape of the stage once had flowed
              C                    G
 The fiddler, he now steps to the road
             C                                   G
 He writes everything's been returned which was owed
         C                           G
 On the back of the fish truck that loads
 While my conscience explodes
         G                 C       D            G    C/G  G
 The harmonicas play the skeleton keys and the rain
            C              G/B        D            G    C/G
 And these visions of Johanna are now all that remain.
