Bob Dylan - Man Gave Names to All the Animals: chords

Chorus:
Em
Man gave names to all the animals
          B                 Em
In the beginning, in the beginning.
Em
Man gave names to all the animals
          B                   Em
In the beginning, long time ago.

Em                               B
He saw an animal that liked to growl,
B                              Em
Big furry paws and he liked to howl,
Em                              A
Great big furry back and furry hair.
B                         Em
"Ah, think I'll call it a bear."

Chorus

He saw an animal up on a hill
Chewing up so much grass until she was filled.
He saw milk comin' out but he didn't know how.
"Ah, think I'll call it a cow."

Chorus

He saw an animal that liked to snort,
Horns on his head and they weren't too short.
It looked like there wasn't nothin' that he couldn't pull.
"Ah, think I'll call it a bull."

Chorus

He saw an animal leavin' a muddy trail,
Real dirty face and a curly tail.
He wasn't too small and he wasn't too big.
"Ah, think I'll call it a pig."

Chorus

Next animal that he did meet
Had wool on his back and hooves on his feet,
Eating grass on a mountainside so steep.
"Ah, think I'll call it a sheep."

Chorus

He saw an animal as smooth as glass
Slithering his way through the grass.
Saw him disappear by a tree near a lake .
