Life Is Hard  Bob Dylan

Some playing suggestions:
The chords in the beginning of the verses can be expanded to follow
the melody:
Ebmaj7 . . Eb6 | Dm7 . Eaug E
The record has the chromatic descent beginning at ‘I’m always
…’ played both in the bass line and in a higher
register. It is probably best to choose one of them;
see chord suggestions below.
The chords to that descent could be conceived of (and played)
either as notated below, or as Am Ammaj7 C/G D9/F#.
Bb . A7 . Dm . D7 .
Gm . C7 . F . . .
[Ebmaj7] The evening winds are still
[Dm7] I've lost the [E7]way and will
[Am] Can't tell you [D7]where they went
[Gm] I just know [C7]what they meant
[Am]I'm always [Ammaj7/G#]on my guard
[Am7/G]Admitting [Am6/F#]life is hard
[Gm] Wit[C7]hout you [F]near me
The friend you used to be
So near and dear to me
You slipped so far away
Where did we go astray
I passed the old school yard
Admitting life is hard
Without you near me
[Bb] Ever since the [A7]day
The [Dm]day you went a[D7]way
[Gm]I felt that emp[C7]tiness so [F]wide
[Bb]I don't know what's [A7]wrong or right
I [Dm]just know I need [D7]strength to fight
[Gm] Strength to [C7]fight that world out[Am]side
Since we've been out of touch
I haven't felt that much
From day to barren day
My heart stays locked away
I walk the boulevard
Admitting life is hard
Without you near me
The sun is sinking low
I guess it's time to go
I feel a chilly breeze
In place of memories
My dreams are locked and barred
Admitting life is hard
Without you near me
[Bb] [A7] [Dm] [D7]  
[Gm] With[C7]out you [F]near me
