Every time I thought I'd got it made
F
G
It seemed the taste was not so sweet
Cmaj7

So I turned myself to face me

But I've never caught a glimpse
Cmaj7

And these children that you spit on
Dm7

As they try to change their worlds
Cmaj7

Em7
Ebm7
Are immune to your consultations

They're quite aware of what they're going through

Song For Bob Dylan

A
G#m
Hear this Robert Zimmerman
F#m
E
I wrote this song for you
A
G#m
About a strange young man called Dylan
F#m
E
With a voice like sand and glue
G#m
C#m7
Some words in truthful vengeance
B
A
Could pin us to the floor
F#m
G#m
Brought a few more people on
A
B
Put the fear in a whole lot more
A
D
Oh, here she comes, here she comes, here she comes again
A
E
The same old painted lady from the brow of the superbrain
F#m
G
She'll scratch this world to pieces as she comes on like a friend
A
E
But a couple of songs from your old scrapbook could send her home again
G
But a couple of songs from your old scrapbook could send her home again
Gave your heart to every bedsit room At least a picture on my wall And you sat behind a million pair of eyes And told them how they saw Then we lost your train of thought Your paintings are all your own While troubles are rising, we'd rather be scared Together than alone Oh, here she comes...
Solo over intro chords
Now hear this, Robert Zimmerman Though I don't suppose we'll meet Ask your good friend Dylan If he'd gaze a while down the old street Tell him we've lost his poems So we're writing on the walls Give us back our unity Give us back our family You're every nation's refugee Don't leave us with their sanity Oh, here she comes...
A
D
Here she comes, here she comes Here she comes

Oh God I could do better than that!
She's an old time ambassador of sweet talking, night walking games And she's known in the darkest clubs for pushing ahead of the dames If she says she can do it, then she can do it, she don't make false claims For she's a queen and such are queens that your laughter is sucked in their brains
E

But now she's leading him on and she'll lay him right down
C

Now she's leading him on and she'll lay him right down

She's so swishy in her satin and tat In her frock coat and bipperty-boppity hat Oh God I could do better than that!
