DIRGE                         BOB DYLAN

Capo 3rd Fret

Em   Am   Em   Am ( x 2 )

Bm                       Em   Bm                         Em
I hate myself for lovin' you, and the weakness that it showed 
Bm              Em                 Bm               F#m
You were just a painted face on a trip down Suicide Road.
G                      Bm                      Em
The stage was set, the lights went out all around the old hotel
G                        C              G        Am        Em
I hate myself for lovin' you, and I'm glad the curtain fell.

Em   Am   Em   Am

Bm                  Em             Bm                    Em
I hate that foolish game we played and the need that was expressed
Bm                     Em              Bm                 F#m
And the mercy that you showed to me -  whoever would have guessed
G                   Bm              Em
I went out on Lower Broadway, and I felt that place within
     G                  C                G      Am        Em
That hollow place where martyrs weep and angels play with sin

Em   Am   Em   Am

Bm                  Em      Bm              Em
Heard your songs of freedom and man forever stripped
Bm             Em               Bm            F#m
Acting out his folly, while his back is being whipped
G               Bm         Em
Like a slave in orbit he's beaten 'til he's tame
G                  C                G      Am     Em
All for a moment's glory, and it's dirty, rotten shame

Em   Am   Em   Am ( x 2 )

Bm                          Em          Bm             Em
There are those who worship loneliness, I'm not one of them
Bm             Em         Bm                  F#m
In this age of fiberglass I'm searching for a gem
G                          Bm           Em
The crystal ball up on the wall hasn't shown me nothing yet
G                      C                G        Am     Em
I've paid the price of solitude but at least I'm out of debt

Em   Am   Em   Am ( x 2 )

Bm             Em           Bm               Em
Can't recall a useful thing you ever did for me
Bm                  Em            Bm               F#m
'Cept pat me on the back one time when I was on my knees
G                           Bm        Em
We stared into each other's eyes, til one of us would break
G         C               G          Am       Em
No use to apologize what difference would it make

Em   Am   Em   Am ( x 2 )

Bm                     Em           Bm          Em
So sing your praise of progress and of the Doom Machine
Bm                 Em           Bm                 F#m
The naked truth is still taboo whenever it can be seen
G             Bm                Em
Lady Luck who shines on me will tell you where I'm at
G                 C                G          Am   Em
I hate myself for lovin' you but I should get over that

Em   Am   Em   Am ( x 2 )
Bm             Em           Bm               Em
Bm                  Em            Bm               F#m
G                           Bm        Em   ....... (fade)
