The Wind Cries Mary
Jimi Hendrix

I love Dylan. I only met him once, about three years ago, back at the Kettle of Fish on MacDougal Street. That was before I went to England. I think both of us were pretty drunk at the time, so he probably doesn't remember it.   [Jimi Hendrix]

C             Bb                 F
After all the jacks are in their boxes
C       Bb          F
And the clowns have all gone to bed
C      Bb            F
You can hear happiness staggering on down the street
G         Bb         Eb E F
Footsteps dressed in red
        G    Bb       Eb E F  Eb E F
And the wind whispers Mary

C          Bb       F
A broom is drearily sweeping
C       Bb          F
Up the broken peices of yesterday's life
C           Bb       F
Somewhere a queen is weeping
G           Bb          Eb E F
Somewhere a king has no wife
        G    Bb    Eb E F  Eb E F
And the wind cries Mary

C       Bb     F
The traffic lights turn blue tomorrow
C       Bb         F
And shine the emptyness down on my bed
C               Bb   F
The tiny island sags downstream
G   Bb       Eb E F
Cause the life that lived is dead
        G    Bb      Eb E F  Eb E F
And the wind screams Mary

C             Bb     F
Will the wind ever remember
CBb           F
The names it has blown in the past
C        Bb           F
With its crutch, its old age, and its wisdom
G         Bb     Eb E F
It whispers no, this will be the last
        G    Bb    Eb E F  Eb E F  Eb E F  Eb E F
And the wind cries Mary
