Dirge  Bob Dylan



-------------------

[Gm]     [Cm]     [Gm]     [Cm]                      
[Dm]I hate myself for lovin' [Gm]you  [Dm]And the weakness that I showed [Gm]...
[Dm]You were just a [Gm]painted face  On a trip [Dm]down Suicide Road[Am].
[Bb]The stage was set, the [Dm]lights went out  All arou[Gm]nd the old hotel
[Bb]I hate myself for lovin' [Eb]you  And I'm gl[Bb]ad the cu[Cm]rtain fell[Gm].
[Dm]I hate that foolish [Gm]game we played  [Dm]And the need that was [Gm]expressed
[Dm]And the mercy that you [Gm]showed to me [Dm]Whoever would have [Am]guessed
[Bb]I went out on Lower [Dm]Broadway  And I [Gm]felt that place within
That [Bb]hollow place where [Eb]martyrs weep  And [Bb]angels [Cm]play with [Gm]sin
[Dm]Heard your songs of [Gm]freedom  [Dm]And man forever [Gm]stripped
[Dm]Acting out his [Gm]folly  While his [Dm]back is being [Am]whipped
[Bb]Like a slave in [Dm]orbit  He's [Gm]beaten 'til he's tame
[Bb]All for a moment's [Eb]glory  And it's [Bb]dirty, [Cm]rotten [Gm]shame
[Dm]There are those who worship [Gm]loneliness  [Dm]I'm not one of [Gm]them
[Dm]In this age of [Gm]fiberglass  [Dm]I'm searching for a [Am]gem
[Bb]The crystal ball up on the [Dm]wall  Hasn't [Gm]shown me nothing yet
[Bb]I've paid the price of [Eb]solitude  But at [Bb]least I'm [Cm]out of [Gm]debt
[Dm]Can't recall a [Gm]useful thing  [Dm]You ever did for [Gm]me
[Dm]'Cept pat me on the [Gm]back one time  [Dm]When I was on my [Am]knees
[Bb]We stared into each other's [Dm]eyes  'Til [Gm]one of us would break
[Bb]No use to [Eb]apologize  What [Bb]diff'rence [Cm]would it [Gm]make
[Dm]So sing your praise of [Gm]progress  And [Dm]of the Doom [Gm]Machine
[Dm]The naked truth is [Gm]still tabu  [Dm]Whenever it can be [Am]seen
[Bb]              [Dm]                   [Gm]    
Lady Luck who shines on me Will tell you where I'm at
[Bb]I hate myself for [Eb]lovin' you  But I [Bb]should get [Cm]over [Gm]that
