THE MIGHTY QUINN - Bob Dylan

 G                 D            G
Come all without, come all within
D C G
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn
G D G
Come all without, come all within
D C G
You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

G C G C
Ev'rybody's building ships and boats
G C G C
Some are building monuments, others jotting down notes.
G C G C
Ev'rybody's in despair, ev'ry girl and boy
G D
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here,
C G
Ev'rybody's gonna jump for joy.
Come all without...

G C G C
I like to go just like the rest, I like my sugar sweet
G C G C
But jumping queues and making haste, just ain't my cup of meat.
G C G C
Ev'ryone's beneath the trees, feeding pigeons on a limb
G D
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here,
C G
All the pigeons gonna run to him.
Come all without...

G C G C
Let me do what I wanna do, I can recite 'em all
G C G C
Just tell me where it hurts and I'll tell you who to call.
G C G C
Nobody can get no sleep, there's someone on ev'ryone's toes.
G D
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here,
C G
Ev'rybody's gonna wanna doze.
