DIGNITY- Bob Dylan
TUNING: D A D F# A D
 
D                                   G D                                  D7
Fat man lookin' in a blade of steel,    thin man lookin' at his last meal
G			        D                     G  D
Hollow man lookin' in a cottonfield for dignity
Wise man lookin' in a blade of grass, young man lookin' in the shadows that pass
Poor man lookin' through painted glass for dignity
CHORUS #1:
A
Somebody got murdered on New Year's Eve
G                             D
Somebody said dignity was the first to leave
G                     F#m
I went into the city, went into the town
Em					   A    A(2)
Went into the land of the midnight sun
Searchin' high, searchin' low, searchin' everywhere I know
Askin' the cops wherever I go, "Have you seen Dignity?"
Blind man breakin' out of a trance, puts both his hands in the pocket of chance
Hopin' to find one circumstance of dignity
I went to the wedding of Mary-lou, she said I don't want nobody see me talkin to you
Said she could get killed if she told me what she knew about dignity
CHORUS #2:
I went down where the vultures feed
I would've gone deeper, but there wasn't any need
Heard the tongues of angels and the tongues of men, wasn't any difference to me
Chilly wind sharp as a razor blade, house on fire, debts unpaid
Gonna stand at the window, gonna ask the maid, "Have you seen dignity?"
Drinkin' man listens to the voice he hears
In a crowded room full of covered up mirrors
Lookin' into the lost forgotten years for dignity
Met Prince Phillip at the home of the blues
Said he'd give me information if his name wasn't used
He wanted money up front, said he was abused by dignity
CHORUS #3:
Footprints runnin' cross the silver sand, steps goin' down into tatoo land
I met the sons of darkness and the sons of light, in the bordertowns of despair
Got no place to fade, got no coat, I'm on the rollin' river in a jerkin' boat
Tryin' to read a note somebody wrote about dignity
Sick man lookin' for the doctor's cure, lookin' at his hands for the lines that were
And into every masterpiece of literature for dignity
Englishman stranded in the blackheart wind
Combin his hair back his future looks thin
Bites the bullet and he looks within for dignity
CHORUS #4:
Someone showed me a picture and I just laughed, dignity never been photographed
I went into the red, went into the black, into the valley of dry bone dreams
So many roads, so much at stake, so many dead ends, I'm at the edge of the lake
Sometimes I wonder what it's gonna take to find dignity

   		Have you seen Dignity?
               (et al.)=7F
Blind man breakin' out of a trance
Puts both his hands in the pocket of chance
Hopin' to find one circumstance
Of dignity
I went to the wedding of Mary-lou
She said " I don't want nobody see me talkin' to you"
Said she could get killed if she told me what she knew
About dignity
I went down where the vultures feed
I would've gone deeper, but there wasn't any need
Heard the tongues of angels and the tongues of men
Wasn't any difference to me
Chilly wind sharp as a razor blade
House on fire, debts unpaid
Gonna stand at the window, gonna ask the maid
Have you seen dignity
Drinkin' man listens to the voice he hears
In a crowded room full of covered up mirrors
Lookin' into the lost forgotten years
For Dignity
Met Prince Phillip at the home of the blues
Said he'd give me information if his name wasn't used
He wanted money up front, said he was abused
By dignity
=09
Footprints runnin' cross the silver sand
Steps goin' down into tatoo land
I met the sons of darkness and the sons of light
In the bordertowns of despair
Got no place to fade, got no coat
I'm on the rollin' river in a jerkin' boat
Tryin' to read a note somebody wrote
About dignity
Sick man lookin' for the doctor's cure
Lookin' at his hands for the lines that were
And into every masterpiece of literature=7F
For dignity
Englishman stranded in the blackheart wind
Combin' his hair back, his future looks thin
Bites the bullet and he looks within
For dignity
Someone showed me a picture and I just laughed
Dignity never been photographed
I went into the red, went into the black
Into the valley of dry bone dreams
So many roads, So much at stake
So many dead ends, I'm at the edge of the lake
Sometimes I wonder what it's gonna take
To find dignity
