The Times They Are A Changin'

Bob Dylan

G Em C G
                     G                     Em               C             G
           Come gather 'round people wherever you roam
                       G                 Am         C                        D
           And admit that the waters around you have grown
                      G                 Em                  C                        G
           And accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
                       Am                            D
           If your time to you is worth savin'
                                        D                                                 D7
                        Then you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone
                                    G                C        D      G     G Em C G
                        For the times they are a-changin'

           Come writers and critics who prophecize with your pen
           And keep your eyes wide the chance won't come again
           And don't speak too soon for the wheel's still in spin
           And there's no tellin' who that it's namin'
                        For the loser now will be later to win
                        For the times they are a-changin'

           Come senators, congressmen please heed the call
           Don't stand in the doorway, don't block up the hall
           For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled
           There's a battle outside and it's ragin'
                        It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
                        For the times they are a-changin'

           Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
           And don't criticize what you don't understand
           Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
           Your old road is rapidly agin'
                        Please get out of the new one if you can't lend a hand
                        For the times they are a-changin'

           The line it is drawn the curse it is cast
           The slow one now will later be fast
           As the present now will later be past
           The order is rapidly fadin'
                        And the first one now will later be last
                        For the times they are a-changin'
