The Times They are A-Changing

Bob Dylan

In 3/4 waltz time
 GEmCG
Come gather 'round people wher-ever you roam
 GAmCD
And ad-mit that the waters ar-ound you have grown,
 GEmCG
And ac-cept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone,
 GAmD
If your time to you is worth saving,
 D7Gmaj7D
Then you'd better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone,
 GCDG
For the times they are a-chang-ing!

 GEmCG
Come writers and critics who prophe-size with your pen,
 GAmCD
And keep your eyes wide, the chance won't come a-gain.
 GEmCG
And don't speak too soon, for the wheel's still in spin,
 GAmD
And there's no telling who that it's naming.
 D7Gmaj7D
For the loser now will be later to win,
 GCDG
For the times they are a-chang-ing!

 GEmCG
Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call,
 GAmCD
Don't stand in the doorway, don't block up the hall.
 GEmCG
For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled,
 GAmD
There's a battle out-side and it's raging.
 D7Gmaj7D
It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls,
 GCDG
For the times they are a-chang-ing!

 GEmCG
Come mothers and fathers, through-out the land,
 GAmCD
And don't criti-cize what you can't under-stand.
 GEmCG
Your sons and your daughters are be-yond your com-mand,
 GAmD
Your old road is rapidly aging.
 D7Gmaj7D
Please get out of the new one if you can't lend your hand,
 GCDG
For the times they are a-chang-ing!

 GEmCG
The line it is drawn, the curse it is cast,
 GAmCD
The slow one now will later be fast.
 GEmCG
As the present now will later be past,
 GAmD
The order is rapidly fading.
 D7Gmaj7D
And the first one now will later be last,
 GCDG
For the times they are a-changing!
