G             Em 
Come gather 'round people 
    C        G 
Wherever you roam 
      G            Am 
And admit that the waters 
 C              D 
Around you have grown 
      G            Em 
And accept it that soon 
          C               G 
You'll be drenched to the bone. 
        G       Am 
If your time to you 
         D 
Is worth savin' 
         G            D 
Then you better start swimmin' 
          C           D 
Or you'll sink like a stone 
        G     C          D   G 
For the times they are a-changin'. 



G             Em 

Come writers and critics 
C        G 

Who prophesize with your pen 
G            Am 
And keep your eyes wide 
C              D 

The chance won't come again 
G            Em 

And don't speak too soon 
C               G 

For the wheel's still in spin 
G       Am 

And there's no tellin' who 
D 

That it's namin'. 
G            D 

For the loser now 
C           D 

Will be later to win 
G     C          D   G 
For the times they are a-changin'. 



G             Em 

Come senators, congressmen 
C        G 

Please heed the call 
G            Am 
Don't stand in the doorway 
C              D 

Don't block up the hall 
G            Em 

For he that gets hurt 
C               G 

Will be he who has stalled 
G       Am 

There's a battle outside 
D 

And it is ragin'. 
G            D 

It'll soon shake your windows 
C           D 

And rattle your walls 
G     C          D   G 
For the times they are a-changin'. 




G             Em 

Come mothers and fathers 
C        G 

Throughout the land 
G            Am 
And don't criticize 
C              D 

What you can't understand 
G            Em 

Your sons and your daughters 
C               G 

Are beyond your command 
G       Am 

Your old road is 
D 

Rapidly agin'. 
G            D 

Please get out of the new one 
C           D 

If you can't lend your hand 
G     C          D   G 
For the times they are a-changin'. 



G             Em 

The line it is drawn 
C        G 

The curse it is cast 
G            Am 
The slow one now 
C              D 

Will later be fast 
G            Em 

As the present now 
C               G 

Will later be past 
G       Am 

The order is 
D 

Rapidly fadin'. 
G            D 

And the first one now 
C           D 

Will later be last 
G     C          D   G 
For the times they are a-changin'.
