Bob Dylan.
Album: John Wesley Harding.
Capo 2

 	 Am7/G  302013

Intro: G Am7/G (play throughout when not playing another chord)


G Am7/G                                   C/G     G Am7/G
"Oh, help me in my weakness," I heard the drifter say,
G Am7/G                                                 C/G G Am7/G
As they carried him from the courtroom, and were taking him away.
G Am7/G                                             C/G    G Am7/G
"My trip hasn't been a pleasant one, and my time it isn't long,
G Am7/G                                   C/G       G Am7/G
And I still do not know, what it was that I've done wrong."


G Am7/G                                              C/G    G Am7/G
Well, the judge, he cast his robe aside, a tear came to his eye,
G Am7/G                                          C/G  G Am7/G
"You fail to understand," he said, "Why must you even try?"
G Am7/G                                            C/G      G Am7/G
Outside, the crowd was stirring, you could hear it from the door
G Am7/G                                             C/G       G Am7/G
Inside, the judge was stepping down, while the jury cried for more.


G Am7/G                                          C/G     G Am7/G
"Oh, stop that cursed jury," Cried the attendant and the nurse,
G Am7/G                                C/G       G Am7/G
"The trial was bad enough, but this is ten times worse."
G Am7/G                                              C/G    G Am7/G
Just then a bolt of lightning, struck the courthouse out of shape,
G Am7/G                                        C/G G Am7/G
And while everybody knelt to pray, the drifter did escape.
