A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall

Bob Dylan

4:4 Key:F

[F][Bb][F]
Oh, [F]where have you been, my [Bb]blue-eyed [F]son?
And [F]where have you been, my darling young [C]one?
I've [Bb]stumbled on the side of [C]twelve misty [F]mountains,
I've [Bb]walked and I've crawled on [C]six crooked [F]highways,
I've [Bb]stepped in the middle of [C]seven sad [F]forests,
I've [Bb]been out in front of a [C]dozen dead [F]oceans,
I've been [Bb]ten thousand miles in the [C]mouth of a [F]graveyard,

And it's a [F]hard, and it's a [C]hard, it's a [F]hard, and it's a [Bb]hard,
And it's a [F]hard rai-[C]-ain's a-gonna [F]fall [Bb][F]

Oh, [F]what did you see, my [Bb]blue-eyed [F]son?
Oh, [F]what did you see, my darling young [C]one?
I saw a [Bb]newborn babe with [C]wild wolves all a-[F]round it
I saw a [Bb]highway of diamonds with [C]nobody [F]on it,
I [Bb]saw a black branch with [C]blood that kept [F]drippin',
I saw a [Bb]room full of men with their [C]hammers a[F]bleedin',
I [Bb]saw a white ladder all [C]covered with [F]water,
I saw [Bb]ten thousand talkers whose [C]tongues were all [F]broken,
I saw [Bb]guns and sharp swords in the [C]hands of young [F]children,

And it's a [F]hard, and it's a [C]hard, it's a [F]hard, and it's a [Bb]hard,
And it's a [F]hard rai-[C]-ain's a-gonna [F]fall [Bb][F]

And [F]what did you hear, my [Bb]blue-eyed [F]son?
And [F]what did you hear, my darling young [C]one?
I heard the [Bb]sound of a thunder, it [C]roared out a [F]warnin',
Heard the [Bb]roar of a wave that could [C]drown the whole [F]world,
Heard [Bb]one hundred drummers, their [C]hands were a[F]-blazin',
Heard [Bb]ten thousand whisperin' and [C]nobody [F]listenin',
Heard [Bb]one person starve, I heard [C]many people [F]laughin',
Heard the [Bb]song of a poet who [C]died in the [F]gutter,
Heard the [Bb]sounds of a clown who [C]cried in the [F]alley,
Heard the [Bb]sound of one person who [C]said he was [F]human,

And it's a [F]hard, and it's a [C]hard, it's a [F]hard, and it's a [Bb]hard,
And it's a [F]hard rai-[C]-ain's a-gonna [F]fall [Bb][F]

Oh, [F]who did you meet, my [Bb]blue-eyed [F]son?
[F]Who did you meet, my darling young [C]one?
I [Bb]met a young child be-[C]side a dead [F]pony,
I [Bb]met a white man who [C]walked a black [F]dog,
I [Bb]met a woman whose [C]body was [F]burning,
I [Bb]met a young girl, she [C]gave me a [F]rainbow,
I [Bb]met one man who was [C]wounded in [F]love,
I [Bb]met another man who was [C]wounded in hatred,

And it's a [F]hard, and it's a [C]hard, it's a [F]hard, and it's a [Bb]hard,
And it's a [F]hard rai-[C]-ain's a-gonna [F]fall [Bb][F]

And [F]what'll you do now, my [Bb]blue-eyed [F]son?
Oh, [F]what'll you do now, my darling young [C]one?
I'm a-[Bb]goin' back out 'fore the [C]rain starts a-[F]fallin',
I'll [Bb]walk to the depths of the [C]deepest black [F]forest,
Where the [Bb]people are many and their [C]hands are all [F]empty,
Where the [Bb]pellets of poison are [C]flooding their [F]waters,
Where the [Bb]home in the valley meets the [C]damp dirty [F]prison,
Where the [Bb]executioner's face is [C]always well [F]hidden,
Where [Bb]hunger is ugly, where [C]souls are for-[F]gotten,
Where [Bb]black is the color, where [C]none is the [F]number,
And I'll [Bb]tell it and think it and [C]speak it and [F]breathe it,
And re-[Bb]flect from the mountain so [C]all souls can [F]see it,
Then I'll [Bb]stand on the ocean un-[C]til I start [F]sinkin',
But I'll [Bb]know my song well be-[C]fore I start [F]singin',

And it's a [F]hard, and it's a [C]hard, it's a [F]hard, and it's a [Bb]hard,
And it's a [F]hard rai-[C]-ain's a-gonna [F]fall [Bb][F]
