[Verse] 1
Oh, [D]where have you been, my [G/D]blue-eyed [D]son?
Oh, [D]where have you been, my darling young [A]one?
I’ve [G/D]stumbled on the side of [A/D]twelve misty [D]mountains
I’ve [G/D]walked and I’ve crawled on [A/D]six crooked [D]highways
I’ve [G/D]stepped in the middle of [A/D]seven sad [D]forests
I’ve [G/D]been out in front of a [A/D]dozen dead [D]oceans
I’ve been [G/D]ten thousand miles in the [A/D]mouth of a [D]graveyard
And it’s a [D]hard, and it’s a [A]hard, it’s a [D]hard, and it’s a [G]hard
It’s a [D]hard rai-[A]rai---n’s a-gonna [[D]]fall
 
 
[Verse] 2
Oh, [D]what did you see, my [G]blue-eyed [D]son?
And [D]what did you see, my darling young [A]one?
I saw a [G/D]newborn baby with wild [A/D]wolves all a[D]around it
I saw a [G/D]highway of diamonds with [A/D]nobody [D]on it
I [G/D]saw a black branch with [A/D]blood that kept [D]drippin’
I saw a [G/D]room full of men with their [A/D]hammers a-[D]a-bleedin’
I [G/D]saw a white ladder all [A/D]covered with [D]water
I saw [G/D]ten thousand talkers whose [A/D]tongues were all [D]broken
I saw [G/D]guns and sharp swords in the [A/D]hands of young [D]children
And it’s a [D]hard, and it’s a [A]hard, it’s a [D]hard, and it’s a [G]hard
And it’s a [D]hard rai-[A]rai---n’s a-gonna [[D]]fall
 
 
[Verse] 3
And [D]what did you hear, my [G]blue-eyed [D]son?
And [D]what did you hear, my darling young [A]one?
I heard the [G/D]sound of a thunder that [A/D]roared out a [D]warnin’
I heard the [G/D]roar of a wave that could [A/D]drown the whole [D]world
I heard [G/D]one hundred drummers whose [A/D]hands were a-[D]a-blazin’
I heard [G/D]ten thousand whisperin’ and [A/D]nobody [D]listenin’
I heard [G/D]one person starve, I heard [A/D]many people [D]laughin’
I heard the [G/D]song of a poet who [A/D]died in the [D]gutter
I heard the [G/D]sound of a clown who [A/D]cried in the [D]alley
And it’s a [D]hard, it’s a [A]hard, it’s a [D]hard, it’s a [G]hard
It’s a [D]hard rai-[A]rai---n’s a-gonna [[D]]fall
 
[Verse] 4
Oh, [D]who did you meet, my [G]blue-eyed [D]son? [Dylanactuallysings"whatdidyoumeet"]
[D]Who did you meet, my darling young [A]one?
I [G/D]met a young child be[A/D]beside a dead [D]pony
I [G/D]met a white man who [A/D]walked a black [D]dog
I [G/D]met a young woman whose [A/D]body was [D]burning
I [G/D]met a young girl, she [A/D]gave me a [D]rainbow
I [G/D]met one man who was [A/D]wounded in [D]love
I [G/D]met another man who was [A/D]wounded in [D]hatred
And it’s a [D]hard, it’s a [A]hard, it’s a [D]hard, it’s a [G]hard
It’s a [D]hard rai-[A]rai---n’s a-gonna [[D]][Verse] 5

And, what’ll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
And, [D]what’ll you do now, my darling young [A]one?
I’m a-[G/D]a-goin’ back out ’fore the [A/D]rain starts a-[D]a-fallin’
I’ll [G/D]walk to the depths of the [A/D]deepest dark [D]forest
Where the [G/D]people are many and their [A/D]hands are all [D]empty
Where the [G/D]pellets of poison are [A/D]flooding their [D]waters
Where the [G/D]home in the valley meets the [A/D]damp dirty [D]prison
And the [G/D]executioner’s face is [A/D]always well h[D]hidden
Where [G/D]hunger is ugly, where the [A/D]souls are for[D]forgotten
Where [G/D]black is the color, where [A/D]none is the [D]number
And I’ll [G/D]tell it and speak it and [A/D]think it and [D]breathe it
And [G/D]reflect from the mountain so [A/D]all souls can [D]see it
Then I’ll [G/D]stand on the ocean un[A/D]until I start [D]sinkin’
But I’ll [G/D]know my song well be[A/D]before I start [D]singin’
And it’s a [D]hard, it’s a [A]hard, it’s a [D]hard, and it’s a [G]hard
It’s a hard[D] rai---n’[A]s a-gonna fall[[D]]
