Dirge

Bob Dylan

 GmCmGmCm
 DmGmDmGm
 I hate myself for lovin' you  And the weakness that I showed ...
 DmGmDmAm
 You were just a painted face  On a trip down Suicide Road.
 BbDmGm
 The stage was set, the lights went out  All around the old hotel
 BbEbBbCmGm
 I hate myself for lovin' you  And I'm glad the curtain fell.

 DmGmDmGm
 I hate that foolish game we played  And the need that was expressed
 DmGmDmAm
 And the mercy that you showed to me Whoever would have guessed
 BbDmGm
 I went out on Lower Broadway  And I felt that place within
 BbEbBbCmGm
That hollow place where martyrs weep  And angels play with sin

 DmGmDmGm
 Heard your songs of freedom  And man forever stripped
 DmGmDmAm
 Acting out his folly  While his back is being whipped
 BbDmGm
 Like a slave in orbit  He's beaten 'til he's tame
 BbEbBbCmGm
 All for a moment's glory  And it's dirty, rotten shame

 DmGmDmGm
 There are those who worship loneliness  I'm not one of them
 DmGmDmAm
 In this age of fiberglass  I'm searching for a gem
 BbDmGm
 The crystal ball up on the wall  Hasn't shown me nothing yet
 BbEbBbCmGm
 I've paid the price of solitude  But at least I'm out of debt

 DmGmDmGm
 Can't recall a useful thing  You ever did for me
 DmGmDmAm
 'Cept pat me on the back one time  When I was on my knees
 BbDmGm
 We stared into each other's eyes  'Til one of us would break
 BbEbBbCmGm
 No use to apologize  What diff'rence would it make

 DmGmDmGm
 So sing your praise of progress  And of the Doom Machine
 DmGmDmAm
 The naked truth is still tabu  Whenever it can be seen
 BbDmGm
Lady Luck who shines on me Will tell you where I'm at
 BbEbBbCmGm
 I hate myself for lovin' you  But I should get over that
