D 125 capo2 dropD (rel C)

| B- | D | A | A |

1
There's really no reason why
I should be standing right in front of you
as if I have something new to say

cause there ain't no feeling that I
haven't felt to way that you have
nothing else to say

| D | G | A | A |
dancing around like a
naked child in the sunshine
everyone wants to feel that free
hanging around waiting
for the perfect moment to come
and the best way to be

inst B-

2
there's really no reason why we
can't all get it together some day
and solve out misery
but we hold onto what we
have and what we think we know is true
only to become history

CHORUS

3
there's really no reason why you're
standing here in front of me
probably have something better to do
like crawl inside an introverted shell
that we all hide in
especially since that's not what we wanna do

and these waves and these files
for then all to decide,

Track Name: A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall
A HARD RAIN'S A GONNA FALL bob dylan

E waltz ballad capo2 drop D (rel D)

1
Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard

And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall

2
Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what did you see, my darling young one?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin'
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin'
I saw a white ladder all covered with water
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children

And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall

3
And what did you hear, my blue-eyed son?
And what did you hear, my darling young one?
I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warnin'
Heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world
Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were all blazin
Heard ten thousand whispering and nobody listenin
Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin'
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall

4
Oh, who did you meet, my blue-eyed son?
Who did you meet, my darling young one?
I met a young child beside a dead pony
I met a white man who walked a black dog
I met a young woman whose body was burning
I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow
I met one man who was wounded in love
I met another man who was wounded with hatred
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall

4
Oh, what'll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what'll you do now, my darling young one?
I'm a-goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a-fallin'
I'll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest
Where the people are many and their hands are all empty
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison
Where the executioner's face is always well-hidden
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten
Where black is the color, where none is the number
And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it
Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin'
But I'll know my song well before I start singin'
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall
