    Bob Dylan - When the Deal Goes Down (C) - 3/3 - harp C(maybe F)

    
           C            E7            F               Dm7
    In the still of the night, in the world's ancient light
          C      G7          C      G
    Where wisdom grows up in strife
         C        E7     F        Dm7
    My bewildered brain, toils in vain
                C               G7          C      C7
    Through the darkness on the pathways of life
    
           F       Dm7              C
    Each invisible prayer is like a cloud in the air
      F            C        D7      G7
    Tomorrow keeps turning around
       C           E7      F        Dm7
    We live and we die, we know not why
                C                 G7        C
    But I'll be with you when the deal goes down
    
    
    We eat and we drink, we feel and we think                  C E7 F Dm7
    Far down the street we stray                               C G7 C G
    I laugh and I cry and I'm haunted by                       C E7 F Dm7
    Things I never meant nor wished to say                     C G7 C C7
    
      The midnight rain follows the train                      F Dm7 C
    We all wear the same thorny crown                          F C  D7 G7
    Soul to soul, our shadows roll                             C E7 F Dm7
    And I'll be with you when the deal goes down               C G7 C
    
        [guitar solo - 2 lines(or more)]
    
    The moon gives light and it shines by night                C E7 F Dm7
    Well, I scarcely feel the glow                             C G7 C G
    We learn to live and then we forgive                       C E7 F Dm7
    O'er the road we're bound to go                            C G7 C C7
    
      More frailer than the flowers, these precious hours      F Dm7 C
    That keep us so tightly bound                              F C  D7 G7
    You come to my eyes like a vision from the skies           C E7 F Dm7
    And I'll be with you when the deal goes down               C G7 C
    
    
    Well, I picked up a rose and it poked through my clothes   C E7 F Dm7
    I followed the winding stream                              C G7 C G
    I heard the deafening noise, I felt transient joys         C E7 F Dm7
    I know they're not what they seem                          C G7 C C7
    
      In this earthly domain, full of disappointment and pain  F Dm7 C
    You'll never see me frown                                  F C  D7 G7
    I owe my heart to you, and that's sayin' it true           C E7 F Dm7
    And I'll be with you when the deal goes down               C G7 C
