Dylan Chords No Capo; 
(Verse; F#m A E C#m7 E F#m A E F#m)
(Chorus; D A F#m A E F#m)

Em           G             D        Bm7             
Crickets are chirpin', the water is high, 
          Em          G            D            Em
There's a soft cotton dress on the line hangin' dry.
Em          G     D       Bm7    
Window wide open, African trees, 
Em        G                D         Em      
Bent over backwards from a hurricane breeze. 	   
 	   D                                     
Not a word of goodbye, not even a note, 
    Em            G          D          Em
She gone with the man in the long black coat.

Em       G        D       Bm7     
Somebody seen him hangin' around, 
   Em            G           D            Em
At the old dance hall on the outskirts of town.
Em                 G             D              Bm7
He looked into her eyes when she stopped him to ask,
      Em        G               D           Em
If he wanted to dance, he had a face like a mask. 
D                                 
Somebody said from the bible he'd quote,
          Em          G          D          Em
There was dust on the man in the long black coat.

Em           G                  D         Bm7
Preacher was talking, there's a sermon he gave,
        Em          G             D          Em
He said every man's conscience is vile and depraved.
Em         G               D       Bm7
You cannot depend on it to be your guide, 
          Em           G    D  Em
When it's you who must keep it satisfied.
   D
It ain't easy to swallow, it sticks in the throat
             Em           G          D          Em                 
She gave her heart to the man in the long black coat.
      
      C                                   G
There are no mistakes in life some people say, 
      Em       G              D          Em 
It is true sometimes, you can see it that way,
    C                                    G
But people don't live or die people just float, 
    Em           G           D          Em 
She went with the man in the long black coat.

Em                   G           D                Bm7
There's smoke on the water, it's been there since June,
Em          G                   D             Em
Tree trunks uprooted 'neath the high crescent moon.
Em                 G             D            Bm7          
Feel the pulse and vibration and the rumbling force,
Em          G                 D         Em
Somebody is out there beating on a dead horse.
    D
She never said nothing, there was nothing she wrote,
    Em            G          D          Em
She gone with the man in the long black coat.
