THE TIMES THEY ARE A'CHANGIN' by Bob Dylan
As recorded by Peter, Paul & Mary

In 3/4 time

Intro:  G       Em      D       D/C     D/B     D/A

     G             Em         C        G
Come gather 'round people wherever you roam,
      G            Am      C              D
And admit that the waters around you have grown,
      G            Em             C               G
And accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone,
        G       Am           D
If your time to you is worth savin'
         D            D/C                D/B         D/A
Then you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone
        G      C          D   G
For the times, they are a'changin'

Come writers and critics who "prophecize" with your pen
And keep your eyes, the chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon, for the wheel still it spins
And there's no tellin' who that it's namin'
For the loser now will be later to win
For the times, they are a'changin'

Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt will be he who has gall
There's a battle outside and it ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times, they are a'changin'

Come mothers and father throughout the land
And don't criticize if you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin'
Please get outta the new one if you can't lend your hand
For the times, they are a'changin'

The line it is drawn, the curse it is cast
The slow one now will later be fast
As the present now will later be past
The order is rapidly fading
And the first one now will later be last
For the times, they are a'changin'
