Ballad of a Thin Man - chords, tab and comments

From "Highway 61 Revisited" (1965) the thin man "Mr. Jones" appears as a clueless person who cannot face the real world. Dylan himself once identified him as Max Jones, a former Melody Maker critic. Probably because that certain Mr. Jones - among other critics - slaughtered Dylans surreal songs of the sixties. Well, who cares?
Am                      Am/G#
You walk into the room with your pencil in your hand
Am/G                    Am/F#
You see somebody naked and you say "who is that man?"
Am/F                 Dm
You try so hard but you just don't understand
C                 E                Am
Just what you will say when you get home
C                      G
Because something is happening here
         Am                  F                 Am
And you don't know what it is, do you, Mister Jones

Am                      Am/G
You have many contacts among the lumberjacks
F                                             Am
To get you facts when someone attacks your imagination
Am                          Am/G
But nobody has any respect, anyway they already expect you
F                      Dm                          G     G7
To all give a check to tax-deductable charity organizations
