Dark Eyes

Bob Dylan

         G D7 G C D G D7 G D7sus4 G              

D7  G/D C   D           G        D7      G/D    D7sus4/C G/D
Oh, the gentlemen are talking and the midnight moon is on the riverside
        G        D7 G/D C   D       G     D7   G/D D7sus4/C G
They're drinking up and walking and it is time for me to slide.
D7/C G/C       C     D7          D7/C G/C           C
I live in another world where life and death are memorized,
D7        G        D7     G/D  C       D          G     D7  G/D D7sus4 
Where the earth is strung with lovers' pearls and all I see are dark 

A cock is crowing far away and another soldier's deep in prayer,
Some mother's child has gone astray, she can't find him anywhere.
But I can hear another drum beating for the dead that rise,
Whom nature's beast fears as they come and all I see are dark eyes.

They tell me to be discreet for all intended purposes,
They tell me revenge is sweet and from where they stand, I'm sure it is.
But I feel nothing for their game where beauty goes unrecognized,
All I feel is heat and flame and all I see are dark eyes.

Oh, the French girl, she's in paradise and a drunken man is at the wheel,
Hunger pays a heavy price to the falling gods of speed and steel.
Oh, time is short and the days are sweet and passion rules the arrow that flies,
A million faces at my feet but all I see are dark eyes.
