Buckets of rain (Bob Dylan, Blood on the tracks)
G6 D G6 D
Buckets of rain, buckets of tears,
G6 D G6 D
got all them buckets comin' out of my ears.
Buckets of moonbeams in my hand,
A G F#m A7/E D
I got all the love, honey baby, you can stand.
I been meek and hard like an oak,
I seen pretty people disappear like smoke.
Friends will arrive, friends will disappear,
if you want me, honey baby, I'll be here.
Like your smile and your fingertips,
like the way that you move your lips.
I like the cool way you look at me,
everything about you is bringing me misery.
Little red wagon, little red bike,
I ain't no monkey but I know what I like.
I like the way you love me strong and slow,
I'm taking you with me, honey baby, when I go.
Life is sad, life is a bust,
all you can do is do what you must.
You do what you must do and you do it well,
I'll do it for you, honey baby, can't you tell.
Hope this helps, Peter.

NOTE: I'm not really that sure about this one, I just know it sounds
much better than playing it in standard version. This is just a general
outline— listen to the record to really get it. Also, it's hard to
explain, but you need to slide on and off the 000102 and 000304 shapes
when they appear.
