A Hard Rains Gonna Fall

George Harrison

 EAE
 Oh, where have you been, my blue eyed son?
 EB
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
 AE
I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
 AE
I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways
 AE
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
 AE
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
 AE
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard
 EBEA
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
 EBEAE
And it's a hard rain's a gonna fall     

 EAE
Oh, what did you see, my blue eyed son?   
 EB
Oh, what did you see, my darling young one?
 AE
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
 AE
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it
 AE
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin'
 AE
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a bleedin'
 AE
I saw a white ladder all covered with water
 AE
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken
 AE
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children
 EBEA
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
 EBEAE
And it's a hard rain's a gonna fall     

 EAE
And what did you hear, my blue eyed son?
 EB
And what did you hear, my darling young one?
 AE
I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warnin'
 AE
Heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world
 AE
Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a blazin'
 AE
Heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin'
 AE
Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin'
 AE
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter
 AE
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley
 EBEA
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
 EBEAE
And it's a hard rain's a gonna fall     

 EAE
Oh, who did you meet, my blue eyed son? 
 EB
Who did you meet, my darling young one?
 AE
I met a young child beside a dead pony
 AE
I met a white man who walked a black dog
 AE
I met a young woman whose body was burning
 AE
I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow
 AE
I met one man who was wounded in love
 AE
I met another man who was wounded with hatred
 EBEA
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
 EBEAE
And it's a hard rain's a gonna fall     

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

Enjoy!
