Bob Dylan - Foot Of Pride: chords

          B
Like the lion tears the flesh off of a man
So can a woman who passes herself off as a male
They sang "Danny Boy" at his
funeral and the Lord's Prayer
The preacher talked about Christ betrayed
               E
It's like the earth just opened and swallowed him up
He reached too high, was thrown back to the ground
           B
You know what they say about bein' nice
to the right people on the way up
Sooner or later you gonna meet them comin' down

Chorus:
            B        G#m
Yeah, there ain't no goin' back
           E
when your foot of pride come down
          B
Ain't no goin' back

Hear ya got a brother named James,
don't forget faces or names
Sunken cheeks, and his blood is mixed
He looked straight into the sun
and said revenge is mine, huh.
But he drinks, and drinks can be fixed
Sing me one more song,
about your love-me-to-the-morning stranger
And your fall by
the sword love affair with Erroll Flynn
in these times of compassion
when conformity's in fashion
Say one more stupid thing to me
before the final nail is driven in.

Chorus:
Well, there ain't no goin' back
when your foot of pride come down
Ain't no goin' back

There's a retired businessman named Red,
cast down from Heaven and he's out of his head
He feeds off of everyone that he can touch
He said he only deals in cash
or sells tickets to a plane crash
He's not somebody that you play around with much
Miss Delilah is his,
a Philistine is what she is
She'll do wondrous works with your fate
Feed you coconut bread,
spiced buns in bed
If you don't mind sleepin'
with your head face down in a grave.

Chorus:
Well, there ain't no goin' back
when your foot of pride come down
Ain't no goin' back

Well they'll choose a man for you to meet tonight
You'll play the fool
and learn how to walk through doors
How to enter into the gates of paradise? No!
How to carry a burden too heavy to be yours.
Yeah, from the stage they'll be
tryin' to get water outta rocks
A whore will pass the hat,
collect a hundred grand and say thanks
They like to take all this money from sin,
build big universities to study in
Sing "Amazing Grace" all the way to the Swiss banks

Chorus:
Well, there ain't no goin' back
when your foot of pride come down
Ain't no goin' back

They got some beautiful people out there, man
They can be a terror to your mind
and show you how to hold your tongue
They got "Mystery" written all over their forehead
They kill babies in the crib
and say only the good die young
They don't believe in mercy
Judgment on them is something that you'll never see
They can exalt you up or bring you down main route
Turn you into anything that they want you to be

Chorus:
Well, there ain't no goin' back
when your foot of pride come down
Ain't no goin' back

Yes, I guess I loved him too, I can
still see him in my mind, climbin' that hill
Did he make it to the top,
well he probably did and dropped
Struck down by the strength of the will.
Ain't nothin' left here, partner,
just the dust of a plague that
has left this whole town afraid
From now on, this'll be where you're from
Let the dead bury the dead. Your time will come
Let hot iron blow as you raise the shade

Chorus:
Well, there ain't no goin' back
when your foot of pride come down
Ain't no goin' back
