		Words and Music By Bob Dylan

	Capo 1

		Fat man lookin' in a blade of steel

		Thin man lookin' at his last meal
		G			        D
		Hollow man lookin' in a cottonfield
			        G  D
		For dig-ni-ty

		Wise man lookin' in a blade of grass

		young man lookin' in the shadows that pass
		G                                D
		poor man lookin' through painted glass
		            G  D
		For dignity

			Somebody got murdered on New Year's Eve
			G                             D
			Somebody said dignity was the first to leave
			G                     F#m
			I went into the city, went into the town
			Em					   A
			went into the land of the midnight sun

		Searchin' high, searchin' low

		Searchin' everywhere I know
		Askin' the cops wherever I go
					 G  D
   		Have you seen Dignity?

               (et al.)=7F

		Blind man breakin' out of a trance
		Puts both his hands in the pocket of chance
		Hopin' to find one circumstance
		Of dignity

		I went to the wedding of Mary-lou
		She said " I don't want nobody see me talkin' to you"
		Said she could get killed if she told me what she knew
		About dignity

			I went down where the vultures feed
			I would've gone deeper, but there wasn't any need
			Heard the tongues of angels and the tongues of men
			Wasn't any difference to me

		Chilly wind sharp as a razor blade
		House on fire, debts unpaid
		Gonna stand at the window, gonna ask the maid
		Have you seen dignity

		Drinkin' man listens to the voice he hears
		In a crowded room full of covered up mirrors
		Lookin' into the lost forgotten years
		For Dignity

		Met Prince Phillip at the home of the blues
		Said he'd give me information if his name wasn't used
		He wanted money up front, said he was abused
		By dignity
			Footprints runnin' cross the silver sand
			Steps goin' down into tatoo land
			I met the sons of darkness and the sons of light
			In the bordertowns of despair

		Got no place to fade, got no coat
		I'm on the rollin' river in a jerkin' boat
		Tryin' to read a note somebody wrote
		About dignity

		Sick man lookin' for the doctor's cure
		Lookin' at his hands for the lines that were
		And into every masterpiece of literature=7F
		For dignity

		Englishman stranded in the blackheart wind
		Combin' his hair back, his future looks thin
		Bites the bullet and he looks within
		For dignity

			Someone showed me a picture and I just laughed
			Dignity never been photographed
			I went into the red, went into the black
			Into the valley of dry bone dreams

		So many roads, So much at stake
		So many dead ends, I'm at the edge of the lake
		Sometimes I wonder what it's gonna take
		To find dignity
