Lend a Hand  Jakob Dylan

Intro: Dm Gm Dm A7
[Dm] [Gm] [A] [Dm]  
[Dm]Blackbird sitting on an[Gm] open gate
[Dm]Cattle out walking the pl[A7]ains
[Dm]West wind blowing in w[Gm]aist-high wheat
[A]Sideways in the ra[Dm]in
[Dm]Bloodhound spent, can't g[Gm]et no trail
[Dm]Ain't no sign of [A7]man
Wanna g[Dm]et ourselves on the str[Gm]aight and the narrow
Gonna ne[A]ed a better p[Dm]lan
[Dm]Roll your sleeves up
Hold back the da[Gm]m
Fil[Dm]l these bags with sa[A7]nd
Every [Dm]young boy, woman
And e[Gm]very man
Has g[A]ot to lend a [Dm]hand
[Dm]It ain't no old wives tale, it a[Gm]in't no fable
[Dm]Payback is coming aro[A7]und
[Dm]The hourglass is sitting t[Gm]here on the table
Fi[A]lled on both sides [Dm]now
[Dm]The work is potluck, gr[Gm]ab a hatchet
[Dm]Wear any glove that f[A7]its
[Dm]You can't take a punch, well [Gm]you might as well quit
Won't [A]matter how hard you[Dm] hit
[Dm]Roll your sleeves up
Shovel the l[Gm]and
R[Dm]ise up and learn how to [A7]stand
Now, you're a too[Dm]thless woman
Or [Gm]a one armed man
You t[A]oo got to lend a [Dm]hand
(Solo, fill inn: Dm Gm Dm A7 Dm Gm A Dm)
[C]We're losing daylight, you got to be swift
[Dm]You ain't got brains that you can lift
[C]Be an optimist and see the glass half full
[A7]You don't got to like what you've got in it
[Dm]When your father gets home he's gonna [Gm]turn on the lights
[Dm]We're up to our throats in k[A7]nifes
[Dm]His eyes will flash and his tee[Gm]th will grind
He'll say, [A]"You're on your own, look a[Dm]live!"
[Dm]Suppose I quit you, my [Gm]wayward tribe
[Dm]Whatever would you [A7]do?
Now t[Dm]ake me to Hades, or [Gm]take me to Memphis
Just don't[A] take me for one of[Dm] you
[Dm]Roll your sleeves up
The fat lady s[Gm]ang
[Dm]Grab your buckets and [A7]cans
Come [Dm]over the border
Your [Gm]papers in order
You [A]too got to lend a [Dm]hand
[Dm]Roll your sleeves up
Hold back the [Gm]dam
[Dm]Fill these bags with s[A7]and
Every [Dm]young boy, woman
And every [Gm]tired old man
You [A]too got to lend a[Dm] hand
