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.

--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.
