[Intro]
C  Fmaj7/C  C  Fmaj7/C  C  Fmaj7/C  C  Fmaj7/C   x2
 
[Verse 1]
C                 Dm
 Once upon a time, dressed so fine
Em                     F              G
 Threw the bums a dime, in your prime, didn't you?
C                  Dm
 People call, say "Doll, you're bound to fall"
Em                          F  G
 You thought they were all...   kiddin' you
 
[Pre-Chorus]
F             G
 You used to... laugh about
F                    G
 Everybody that was... hangin' out
F             Em  Dm         C
 Now you don't... talk so loud
F             Em  Dm          C
 Now you don't... seem so proud
 Dm                            F               G
About having to be scrounging... for your next meal.
 
[Chorus]
              C   Fmaj7/C   G
How does it feel
              C   Fmaj7/C   G
How does it feel
             C   Fmaj7/C   G
To be on you own
                  C   Fmaj7/C   G
With no direction home
             C    Fmaj7/C   G
A complete unknown
               C    Fmaj7/C   G
Like a rolling stone
 
[Verse 2]
G             C           Dm                      Em
Aaaaa, you've gone to the finest schools all right, Lil' Miss Lonely
        F         G
But you only got... juiced in it
       C                        Dm          Em
See, nobody has ever taught you how to live out on the street
    F                              G
And now you know you gotta to get... used to it
 
[Pre-Chorus]
F                      G
 You said you'd never... compromise
F                                    G
 With the mystery tramp, but now you... realize
F              Em        Dm  C
 He's just not selling no alibis
F                      Em        Dm     C
 As you stare into the vacuum... of his eyes
    Dm                  F        G
And say do you want to... make a deal?
 
[Chorus]
              C   Fmaj7/C   G
How does it feel
              C   Fmaj7/C   G
How does it feel
              C   Fmaj7/C   G
To be on your own
                  C   Fmaj7/C   G
With no direction home
             C    Fmaj7/C   G
A complete unknown
               C    Fmaj7/C   G
Like a rolling stone
 
[Verse 3]
G           C                      Dm
Ohhh... You never turned around to see the frowns
Em                       F                         G
 On the jugglers and the clowns when they all came down and did their... tricks for you
C                    Dm                Em
 You never understood that it ain't no good
    F                                     G
You shouldn't let other people get their... kicks for you
 
[Pre-Chorus]
F                                                G
 You used to ride on the chrome horse with your... diplomat
F                               G
 Who carried on his shoulder a... Siamese cat
F         Em           Dm       C
 Ain't it hard when you discover that
F          Em        Dm         C
 He really wasn't... where it's at
Dm                     F                   G
After he took from you everything he could steal.
 
[Chorus]
              C   Fmaj7/C   G
How does it feel
              C   Fmaj7/C   G
How does it feel
                  C   Fmaj7/C   G
To be out on your own
                  C   Fmaj7/C   G
With no direction home
                  C    Fmaj7/C   G
Like a complete unknown
               C    Fmaj7/C   G
Like a rolling stone
 
G   G   G   G
 
[Interlude]
C   Dm   Em   F   G   G
C   Dm   Em   F   G   G
 
[Verse 4]
C                Dm      Em
 Princess on the steeple  all the pretty people
F                           G
 They're thinkin' drinkin'... that they got it made
C               Dm             Em
 Exchanging all precious gifts
                    F             G
Ya better take that diamond ring... you better pawn it babe
 
[Pre-Chorus]
F                G
 You used to be... so amused
F                                         G
 With Napoleon in rags and all the clever language that he used
F              Em                    Dm          C
 Go ahead now, he calls you, now you can't refuse
F                Em           Dm             C
 Now that you realize you got nothing to lose
          Dm          F                         G
 You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal.
 
[Chorus]
              C   Fmaj7/C   G
How does it feel
                C   Fmaj7/C   G
How does it feel
              C   Fmaj7/C   G
To be on your own
                  C   Fmaj7/C   G
With no direction home
                  C    Fmaj7/C   G
Like a complete unknown
               C    Fmaj7/C   G
Like a rolling stone
 
[Outro]
