Roger McGuinn             Up To Me        written by Bob Dylan

E                                  A

Every thing went from bad to worse money never changed a thing
E                                        A
Death kept following  trackin us down at least I heard your bluebird
    Abm               E                              A
Now somebody's got to show their hand time is but an enemy
A E  B C#m         E    A                        E  A E A  *

I know you're long gone I guess it must be up to me
If I'd  thought about it I never would have done it

I guess I would a let it slide

If I'd a pay  attention to what others were thinking

This heart inside of me would have died
Abm                        E

I was just too stubborn to ever be governed

By enforced insanity
A       E      B             C#m   E      A                  E A E A

Someone had to reach for the risin star I guess it was up to me
         E                                   A

Well the Union Central is pullin out and the orchids are in bloom
     E                                       A

I've only got me one good shirt left and it smells like stale perfume
   Abm                  E                                      A

In fourteen months I've only smiled once  I didn't  do it consciously
    E      B      C#m       E           A                        E A E
Somebody's got to find your trail and I guess it had to be up to me
       E                          A

It was like a revelation when you betrayed me with your touch
         E                                 A
I'd  had just about convinced myself  that nothing had changed that
       Abm              E                                  A
The old rounder in the iron mask he slipped me the master key
    E     B     C#m         E         A                 E  A  E  A *
Somebody had to unlock your heart  he said it was up to me
        E                                 A
Well I watched you slowly disappear  down into the officer's club
   E                                        A
I would have followed you in the door but I didn't have a ticket stub
     Abm                            E
So I waited all night long till the break of day  hoping one of us
would get
         E         B        C#m  E         A                 E A E A *
When the dawn came over the river bridge I knew it was up to me
         E                            A
Well the only decent thing I did was when I worked as a postal clerk
        E                                  A
Was to haul your picture down off the wall near the cage where I use
             Abm          E                     A
work I was a fool  not to try to protect your idenity
     E          B         C#m     E
You looked a little burned out my friend
  A                         E A E A  *
I thought it might be up to me
       E                            A
When I met somebody face to face  I had to remove my hat
      E                                A
She's everything I need and love but I can't be swayed by that
   Abm              E                                A
It frightens me the awful truth   how sweet life can be
        E      B      C#m    E      A                      E A E A *
But she ain't a gonna make a move I guess it must be up to me
    E                                  A
We heard the sermon on the mount and I knew it was too complex
          E                                   A
It didn't amount to anything more than what a broken glass reflects
         Abm,               E                        A
When you bite off more than you can chew you pay the penalty
E          B      C#m      E      A                      E A E A *
Somebody's got to tell the tale I guess it must be up to me
      E                              A
Well Dupree came a pimping tonight  to the Thunderbird Cafe
E                                A
Crystal  wanted to talk to him I had to look the other way
    Abm                E                                 A
Now I  just can't rest without your  love I need your company
    E      B           C#m         E   A                      E A E A
But you ain't a gonna cross the line I guess it must be up to me
          E                               A
There's a note left in the bottle you can give it to Estelle
          E                                       A
She's the one you've been wondering about there's really nothin much

   Abm               E                          A
We both heard voices for awhile now the rest is history
E         B       C#m      E       A                      E A E A *
Somebody's got to cry some tears I guess it must be up to me
   E                               A
So go on boys and play your hands life is but a pantomine
    E                                        A
The ringleaders from the county seat say you don't have all that much
        Abm           E                              A
And the girl with me behind the shades she ain't my property
E              B     C#m    E        A                     E A E A
One of us has got to hit the road I guess it must be up to me
          E                 A
And if we never meet again baby remember me
        E                                    A
How my lone guitar played sweet for you that old time melody
        Abm          E                                    A
And the rickenbacker around my leg I played it for you for free
         E  B     C#m        E       A                 E A E A  E
No one else could play that tune you know it was up to me
