Bob Dylan

   F#m7        E            A
1. Lost John's sittin' on a railroad track
   F                  E
   Something's out of whack
   F#m7       E               A         Bm7
   Blues this mornin' fallin' down like hail
   A                       E   A
   Gonna leave a greasy trail  
   Gon' travel the world is what I'm gonna do
   Then come back and see you.
   All I ever do is struggle and strive.
   If I don't do anybody any harm, I might make it back home alive.
   I'm the oldest son of a crazy man,
   I'm in a cowboy band
   Got a pile of sins to pay for and I ain't got time to hide
   I'd walk through a blazing fire, baby, if I knew you was on the other side

   E  D  A
R: Oh, I miss you, Nettie Moore
   And my happiness is o'er
   E                                 A
   Winter's gone, the river's on the rise
               A             C#7
   I loved you then and ever shall
               D                   A
   But there's no one left here to tell
       A              E               A
   The world has gone black before my eyes

2. Well, the world of research has gone berserk
   Too much paperwork
   Albert's in the graveyard, Frankie's raising hell
   I'm beginning to believe what the scriptures tell
   I've gone where the Southern crosses the Yellow Dog
   Get away from these demagogues
   And these bad-luck women stick like glue
   It's either one or the other or neither of the two
   She says, "Look out, daddy, don't want you to tear your pants
   You can get wrecked in this dance."
   They say whisky'll kill you, but I don't think it will
   I'm ridin' with you to the top of the hill

R: Oh, I miss you, Nettie Moore...

3. Don't know why my baby never looked so good before
   Don't have to wonder no more
   She been cooking all day, gonna take me all night
   I can't eat all that stuff in a single bite
   The judge's coming in, everybody rise
   Lift up your eyes
   You can do what you please, you don't need my advice
   'Fore you call me any dirty names, you'd better think twice
   Gettin' light outside, the temperature dropped
   I think the rain has stopped
   I'm gonna make you come to grips with fate
   When I'm through with you, you'll learn to keep your business straight

R: Oh, I miss you, Nettie Moore...

4. The bright spark of the steady lights
   Has dimmed my sights
   When you're around me all my grief gives 'way
   A life time with you is like some heavenly day
   Everything I've ever known to be right has been proven wrong
   I'll be drifting along
   The woman I'm a-lovin', she rules my heart
   No knife could ever cut our love apart.
   Today I'll stand in faith and raise
   The voice of praise
   The sun is strong, I'm standing in the light
   I wish to God that it were night

R: Oh, I miss you, Nettie Moore...
