Not Dark Yet  Bob Dylan

Sorry, I had it in the wrong key earlier. It's actually in E. The
lead is in c#m pentatonic (9th fret root):

E c#m A/E E
Shadows are falling and I been here all day
c#m A/E E
It's too hot to sleep and time is running away
B B/A A E c#m
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I've still got the [E]scars that the [A]sun didn't [E]heal
B B/A A E c#m
There's not even room enough to be anywhere
It's not dark [E]yet,[A] but it's getting [E]there
Well my sense of humanity is going down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing, there's been some kind of pain
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writin' what was in her mind
I just don't see why I should even care
It's not dark yet, but it's getting there
Well I been to London and I been to gay Paris
I followed the river and I got to the sea
I've been down to the bottom of a world full of lies
I ain't lookin for nothin' in anyone's eyes
Sometimes my burden is more than I can bear
It's not dark yet, but it's getting there
I was born here and I'll die here, against my will*)
I know it looks like I'm movin' but I'm standin' still
Every nerve in my body is so naked and numb
I can't even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Don't even hear the murmur of a prayer
It's not dark yet, but it's getting there
