Song For Dylan.
David Bowie.
Album: Hunky Dory.

Intro: A Abm F#m E A Abm F#m B
    A                      Abm
Oh, hear this Robert Zimmerman,
  F#m              E
I wrote a song for you,
        A                         Abm
About a strange young man, called Dylan,
       F#m                 E
With a voice like sand and glue,
    Abm               C#m
His words of truthful vengeance,
           B             A
They could pin us to the floor,
F#m                Abm
Brought a few more people on,
            A                   B
And put the fear in a whole lot more.

    A
Ah, here she comes, here she comes,
D              A
Here she comes again,
A
The same old painted lady,
         E
From the brow of a super brain,
       F#m
She'll scratch this world to pieces,
       G
As she comes on like a friend,
      A
But a couple of songs,
A
From your old scrapbook,
      E     
Could send her home again.

    A                        Abm
You gave your heart to every bedsit room,
           F#m           E
At least a picture on my wall,
        A                    Abm
And you sat behind a million pair of eyes,
    F#m                E
And told them how they saw,
    Abm           C#m
Then we lost your train of thought,
    B                      A
The paintings are all your own,
      F#m
While troubles are rising,
     Abm               A             B
We'd rather be scared, together than alone.

    A
Ah, here she comes, here she comes,
D              A
Here she comes again,
A
The same old painted lady,
         E
From the brow of a super brain,
       F#m
She'll scratch this world to pieces,
       G
As she comes on like a friend,
      A
But a couple of songs,
A
From your old scrapbook,
      E     
Could send her home again, oh,


Break: A Abm F#m E A Abm F#m B

    A                     Abm
Now hear this Robert Zimmerman,
         F#m                 E
Though I don't suppose we'll meet,
    A                Abm
Ask your good friend Dylan,
               F#m                 E
If he'd gaze a while, down the old street,
Abm                     C#m
Tell him we've lost his poems,
           B              A
So they're writing on the walls,
F#m              Abm
Give us back our unity,
A                B
Give us back our family,
       F#m            Abm
You're every nation's refugee,
      A                   B
Don't leave us with their sanity.

    A
Ah, here she comes, here she comes,
D              A
Here she comes again,
A
The same old painted lady,
         E
From the brow of a super brain,
       F#m
She'll scratch this world to pieces,
       G
As she comes on like a friend,
      A
But a couple of songs,
A
From your old scrapbook,
      E     
Could send her home again,
    G
Oh, couple songs from your old scrapbook,
                    A
Could send her home again,
A            D
Oh, here she comes, ooh,
         A                   D
Here she comes, oh, here she comes,
A    Abm F#m E A Abm F#m B E
Ooh...
