Here is, without a doubt, the most accurate tab of A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall
by Bob Dylan. All the other tabs on this site and throughout the net are
absolutely god awful wrong! I mean not even close! And you'd be a fool if you can't hear
off they are. I got so tired of, one of, if not my favorite Dylan song being abused and
to people wrong. So I'm here as your salvation! Here we go, A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall 

To start

Tuning: Standard EADGBE

***: Here you can either stay in Eb for the first hard, or what I like to do
and I've seen Bob do, is just simply hit G on E (thickest string) and strum down
Eb, it's your choice.

As you can see, easy easy easy!
Now played properly

Intro: Eb, Ab

Eb                          Fm7
Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?

Eb                                        Bb   Bbsus4  Bb
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?

Ab/F                         Bb/F         Eb
I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains,

Ab/F                            Bb/F        Eb
I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways,

Ab/F                          Bb/F      Eb
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests,

Ab/F                        Bb/F       Eb
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans,

Ab/F                                Bb/F       Eb
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard,

           ***              Bb  Bbsus4        Eb
And it's a hard, and it's a hard,      it's a hard, and it's a hard,

           Eb            Bb Bbsus4              Eb
Ab  Eb(for next verse)
And it's a hard raaaaaaiiiiiiiiin's     a-gonna fall.
