FOR GEMMA :) xxxx Artist : Emmy The Great Song: Dylan Time: 3:00 approx. 90 % correct at least ;) you'll notice that the majority of this song is written in barre chords. the transitions between chords (the F#'s and G#'s) between F-G and G-Am make the song a lot better. this song should be played staccato (mostly). the C barre and Am barre were bastards to work out from listening to the song. CHORD INDEX: (Most Barre Chords are muted as power chords at some point - bear this in mind) Am - x0221x Am (barre) - 577555 C - x3201x C (barre)- x355xx F (barre)- 1332xx Fmaj7 - x3321x F# - 2443xx G - 32003x G (barre)- 3554xx --intro-- Am x 5 --Verse 1-- Am G I pray for rain because I'm trying Am G To find god and make him cry, C G Because I'm dying in a fire beneath my covers. Am G And somewhere out across the way, Am G You ask for salt across a plate, C And you can't find a word to say G To your own brother. --Bridge-- Fmaj7 G And you could call me over now, Fmaj7 G And we could fix this with our mouths, G But you don't buy the farm, Am If you can't afford the cow. --Chorus-- Fmaj7 And you say Dylan is a sentiment That you don't want to share, F# C (barre) And you say you looked back in anger And it rose to meet your stare, F (barre) And you say I am not the one Who puts the bullet to your gun Am (barre) And makes it flare. Fmaj7 F# G (barre) And you say Dylan is a sentiment to you, Am (barre) And you don't want to share. --Verse 2-- Am G You say you're looking for the truth, Am G Like you got rifles in your books, C But up above your parents' roof G I saw no star tonight, Am G Only the black from whence you came, Am G And where they'll send you back again, C And no blue plaque will keep your name G From falling out of sight. --Bridge-- Fmaj7 G And you can wage this war of one, Fmaj7 G And I am still the only one Am Who will remember you when you are gone. --Chorus-- C (barre) And you say Dylan is a sentiment That you don't want to share, And you say you looked back in anger And it rose to meet your stare, F (barre) And you say I am not the one Who puts the bullet to your gun Am (barre) And makes it flare. Fmaj7 F# G (barre) And you say Dylan is a sentiment to you, Am (barre) And you don't want to share. --Break-- C (barre) Oh and all the things you talk about But never say to me, Am (barre) And all the things to talk about That I could say to you, C (barre) Like reading an Italian book From the 13th century, G (barre)Am (barre) Is not that hard to do. F (barre) F# (barre) G (barre) --Altern. Chorus-- F (barre) And I am not the kind F# G (barre) Who puts their toe against the line Am (barre) And makes it tear, F (barre) But this could be the thing G (barre) That puts the blood into your skin Am (barre) And keeps it there. --Chorus-- F (barre) And you say Dylan is a sentiment C (barre) That no one else will ever understand. F (barre) G (barre) And you say Dylan is a sentiment to you, G (barre) Am (barre) But you are only just a man. --Outro-- Am (barre) x 5 staccato in quick succession.
