When The Deal Goes Down

Bob Dylan

       C            E7            F                  Dm7
In the still of the night, in the world's ancient light
      C/G    G            C    G
Where wisdom grows up in strife 
      C        E7     F        Dm7
My be wildered brain, toils in vain
            C/G             G      G7       C7
Through the darkness on the pathways of Clife  
       F6      Dm7              C
Each invisible prayer is like a cloud in the air
  F            C/E      D7   G7sus4  (G7)
Tomorrow keeps turning around 
   C           E7      F        Dm7
We live and we die, we know not why
            C/G               G    G7   C
But I'll be with you when the deal goes down

We eat and we drink, we feel and we think
Far down the street we stray
I laugh and I cry and I'm haunted by
Things I never meant nor wished to say
The midnight rain follows the train
We all wear the same thorny crown
Soul to soul, our shadows roll
And I'll be with you when the deal goes down

The moon gives light and it shines by night
Well, I scarcely feel the glow
We learn to live and then we forgive
O'er the road we're bound to go
More frailer than the flowers, these precious hours
That keep us so tightly bound
You come to my eyes like a vision from the skies
And I'll be with you when the deal goes down

Well, I picked up a rose and it poked through my clothes
I followed the winding stream
I heard the deafening noise, I felt transient joys
I know they're not what they seem
In this earthly domain, full of disappointment and pain
You'll never see me frown
I owe my heart to you, and that's sayin' it true
And I'll be with you when the deal goes down
