I Pity The Poor Immigrant.
Bob Dylan.
Album: John Wesley Harding.
Capo 5.

Intro: C F/C G C F G C
C                   F
I pity the poor immigrant,
    Gmaj7                     C
Who wishes he would've stayed home,
Who uses all his power to do evil,
           G                     C    G C
But in the end is always left so alone,
     Am                Em
That man whom with his fingers cheats,
        F               C      G C
And who lies with every breath,
Who passionately hates his life,
    Gmaj7               C    F G C
And likewise, fears his death.

C                   Fmaj7
I pity the poor immigrant,
      G                    C   G Ca
Whose strength is spent in vain,
Whose heaven is like Ironsides,
      G              C    G C
Whose tears are like rain,
    Am              Cmaj7
Who eats but is not satisfied,
    F              Dm7 C   G C
Who hears but does not see,
                       Dm7    Fmaj7
Who falls in love with wealth itself,
    Gmaj7             C  F G C
And turns his back on me.

C               Dm7  F
I pity the poor immigrant,
    G                    C
Who tramples through the mud,
Who fills his mouth with laughing,
        Gmaj7                C
And who builds his town with blood,
      Am             Cmaj7
Whose visions in the final end,
     F            Dm7 C
Must shatter like the glass,
I pity the poor immigrant,
          Gmaj7            C    F G C
When his gladness comes to pass.

F G C Am Em F C F G C
