 Eb  Ab  Bb   Fm

Fat man lookin in a blade of steel

Thin man lookin at his last meal
Ab                     Eb
Hollow man lookin in a cottonfield
             Ab  Eb
For dignity

Wise man lookin in a blade of grass
Young man lookin in the shadows that pass
Ab                       Eb
Poor man lookin through painted glass
            Ab Eb
For dignity

Blind man breakin out of a trance

Puts both his hands in the pockets of chance
Ab                       Eb                Ab Eb
Hopin' to find one circumstance of dignity

I went to the wedding of Mary-Lou

She said I dont want nobody see me talkin to you
Ab                                       Eb
Said she could get killed if she told me what she knew
              Ab Eb
About dignity

I went down where the vultures feed
Ab                                          Eb
I would've gone deeper, but there wasnt any need
         Ab                         Eb             Fm
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
Ab                                         Eb
Gonna stand at the window, gonna ask the maid
                       Ab Eb
Have you seen dignity?

Ab  Eb   Ab Eb

Drinkin' man listens to the voice he hears

In a crowded room full of covered up mirrors
Ab                           Eb
Lookin into the lost forgotten years
             Ab Eb
For dignity

Met Prince Phillip at the home of the blues

Said hed give me information if his name wasn't used
Ab                                   Eb
He wanted money up front, said he was abused
           Ab Eb
By dignity

Footprints runnin cross the silver sand
Ab                            Eb
Steps goin down into tattoo land
Ab                                       Eb     Fm
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
Ab                               Eb
Tryin' to read a note somebody wrote
              Ab Eb
About dignity

Ab Eb Ab Eb

Sick man lookin' for the doctors cure

Lookin' at his hands for the lines that were
Ab                                  Eb
And into every masterpiece of literature
            Ab Eb
For dignity

Englishman stranded in the blackheart wind

Combin' his hair back, his future looks thin
Ab                            Eb
Bites the bullet and he looks within
           Ab Eb
For dignity

Someone showed me a picture and I just laughed
Ab                              Eb
Dignity never been photographed
    Ab              Eb                Fm
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
Ab                                Eb
Sometimes I wonder what its gonna take 
             Ab Eb 
To find Dignity
