                              Words and Music by
                                  Bob Dylan

This is my version of Dylan's "Senor", as played by the Jerry Garcia Band
on the JGB double disc set.  It's probably pretty true to Dylan's version,
though, although there may be about 1000 more verses that Dylan wrote and
Jerry didn't sing (Dylan is a rather loquacious songwriter).  Each chord
is 1/2 measure (two beats) except for the [F-Em] figure which is 1/2 measure
total.  I originally thought that each chord would be one full measure, but
when I listened to it again, I realised that the actual beat was half as 
fast as I thought it was.  Listen to the recording if you've got it and
see if you agree.  Just for reference, I counted the recording at about
55-60 bpm.

Also, if anybody can fill me in on the spots where I've got ???'s instead
of lyrics, I'd most appreciate it.
