Man in the Long Black Coat

Bob Dylan

 EmGDEm
 EmGDBm
 Crickets are chirpin' the water is high
 EmGDEm
There's a soft cotton dress on the line hangin' dry
 EmGDBm
 Windows wide open African trees
 EmGDEm
 Bent over backwards from a hurricane breeze
 D
 Not a word, a goodbye, not even a note
 EmGDEm
She gone with the man in the long black coat

Somebody seen him hangin' around
At the old dance hall on the outskirts of town
He looked into her eyes when she stopped him to ask
If he wanted to dance he had a face like a mask
Somebody said, from the Bible he quote
There was dust on the man in the long black coat

Preacher was talkin' there's a sermon he gave
He said every man's conscience is vile and depraved
You cannot depend on him to be your guide
And it's you who must keep it satisfied
It ain't easy to swallow, it sticks in the throat
To give her heart to the man in the long black coat

 There are no mistakes in life some people say
 EmDEm
And it's true sometimes you can see it that way
 CG
 People don't live or die, people just float
 EmDEm
She went with the man in the long black coat

There's smoke on the water its been there since June
Tree trunks uprooted neath the high passing moon
Feel the pulse and vibrations and the rumblin' force
Somebody is out there beating on a dead horse
She never said nothin', there was nothin' she wrote
She went with the man in the long black coat
