Desolation Row is just E A B

For intro and in between verses play an open E and and hit the A (2nd fret G) string with your pinky
Also bar 7th fret with your index finger (E) and hamer 7th fret B string with middle and 8th fret D string with ring finger to hit the A. Slide that A up and its a B
Love how they play this and hold that B going into the last line to resolve it

Rock on -

E---A---E

E
They're selling postcards of the hanging
A -----------------------------------E
They're painting the passports brown
B
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
A--------------- E
The circus is in town
E
And in walks the blind commissioner
A------------------------E
They've got him in a trance
B
One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker
A ------------------ E
The other is in his pants
-----------A
And the riot squad they're restless
E---------------------------A
They need somewhere to go
---E ------------------B
So Lady of the night look out tonight
---A-------------E ----- E A E
on Desolation Row.
