The Times They are A-Changing  Bob Dylan

In 3/4 waltz time
Come [G]gather 'round [Em]people wher-[C]ever you [G]roam
And ad-[G]mit that the [Am]waters ar-[C]ound you have [D]grown,
And ac-[G]cept it that [Em]soon you'll be [C]drenched to the [G]bone,
If your [G]time to [Am]you is worth [D]saving,
Then you'd [D7]better start swimming or you'll [Gmaj7]sink like a [D]stone,
For the [G]times they [C]are a-[D]chang-[G]ing!

Come [G]writers and [Em]critics who prophe-[C]size with your [G]pen,
And [G]keep your eyes [Am]wide, the chance [C]won't come a-[D]gain.
And [G]don't speak too [Em]soon, for the [C]wheel's still in [G]spin,
And there's no [G]telling [Am]who that it's [D]naming.
For the [D7]loser now will be [Gmaj7]later to [D]win,
For the [G]times they [C]are a-[D]chang-[G]ing!

Come [G]senators, [Em]congressmen, [C]please heed the [G]call,
Don't [G]stand in the [Am]doorway, don't [C]block up the [D]hall.
For [G]he that gets [Em]hurt will be [C]he who has [G]stalled,
There's a [G]battle out-[Am]side and it's [D]raging.
It'll [D7]soon shake your windows and [Gmaj7]rattle your [D]walls,
For the [G]times they [C]are a-[D]chang-[G]ing!
Come [G]mothers and [Em]fathers, through-[C]out the [G]land,
And [G]don't criti-[Am]cize what you [C]can't under-[D]stand.
Your [G]sons and your [Em]daughters are be-[C]yond your com-[G]mand,
Your [G]old road is [Am]rapidly [D]aging.
Please get [D7]out of the new one if you [Gmaj7]can't lend your [D]hand,
For the [G]times they [C]are a-[D]chang-[G]ing!
The [G]line it is [Em]drawn, the [C]curse it is [G]cast,
The [G]slow one [Am]now will [C]later be [D]fast.
As the [G]present [Em]now will [C]later be [G]past,
The [G]order is [Am]rapidly [D]fading.
And the [D7]first one now will [Gmaj7]later be [D]last,
For the [G]times they [C]are a-[D]chang[G]ing!
