Bob Dylan guitar chords    

(Thanks to Stephen Hoch for the lyrics)

Johnny's in the basement mixin up the medicine
I'm on the pavement thinkin bout the goverment
man in a trenchcoat badge out laid off
says he's got a bad cough 
want's to get it paid off
look out kid somthin ya did
god knows when
but your doin it again
better duck down the alleyway
lookin for a new friend
man in a coonskin cap and a pigpen
11 dollar bills
you only got ten
maggie comes fleet foot 
face full of black soot
talkin that the heat put
plants in the bed but
phoned tapped anyway 
maggie says that many say
must bust in early May 
orders from the DA
look out kid your gonna get hit
by losers, cheaters, six time users
hangin round the theaters
girl by the whirlpool
lookin for a new fool 
don't follow leaders 
watch your parkin meters
get sick get well
hang around the ink well
hang bell(?)
hard to tell
if anything is going to sell
try hard, get barred
get back, ride rail
get jailed, jump bail
join the army if you fail
look out kid don't matter what ya did
better walk on your tip toes 
don't tie no bows
better stay away from those
who carry around a fire hose
keep a clean nose
watch the plain clothes
you don't need a weather man 
to know which way the wind blows
get born keep warm short pants romance
learn to dance get dressed get blessed 
try to be a success
please her please him
buy gifts don't steal don't lift
20 years of schoolin' and they put ya on the dayshift
look out kid they keep it all hid
better jump down a manhole
light yourself a candle
don't wear sandles
try to avoid the scandles
don't wanna be a bum
ya better chew gum
the pump don't work cause the vandals took the handles
