I pity the poor Immigrant  Bob Dylan

I p[G]ity the poor im[C]migrant who wi[D7]shes he would have stayed h[G]ome
Who uses a[G]ll his power to do e[C]vil but in the [D7]end is always left so al[G]one
That [Em]man whom with his f[Bm]ingers cheats, who li[C]es with every b[G]reath
Who pass[G]ionately ha[C]tes his life and like[D7]wise fears his d[G]eath

I pity the poor immigrant who tramples thru the mud
Who fills his mouth with laughing & who builds his town with blood
Who eats but is not satisfied, who hears but does not see
Who falls in love with wealth itself and turns his back on me

I pity the poor immigrant whose strength is spent in vain
Whose heaven is like ironsides, whose tears are like rain
Whose visions in the final end, must shatter like the glass
I pity the poor immigrant when his gladness comes to pass
