Bob Dylan - Nettie Moore: chords

G#m       F#/A#         B
Lost John sitting on a railroad track
 G                  F#
Something's out of wack
G#m        F#/A#            B         C#m7
Blues this morning falling down like hail
 B                     F#  B
Gonna leave a greasy trail

Gonna travel the world is what I'm gonna do
Then come back and see you
All I ever do is struggle and strive
If I don't do anybody any harm,
I might make it back home alive

I'm the oldest son of a crazy man,
I'm in a cowboy band
Got a pile of sins to pay for and
I ain't got time to hide
I'd walk through a blazing fire, baby,
if I knew you was on the other side

Chorus:
F#  F#7 B
Oh, I  miss you Nettie Moore
        E
And my happiness is o'er
 F#                                B
Winter's gone, the river's on the rise
                          D#7
I loved you then and ever shall
             E                          B
But there's no one here that's left to tell
     B              F#               B
The world has gone black before my eyes

Well, the world of research has gone berserk
Too much paperwork
Albert's in the graveyard, Frankie's raising hell
I'm beginning to believe what the scriptures tell

I'm goin' where the Southern crosses the Yellow Dog
Get away from these demagogues
And these bad-luck women stick like glue
It's either one or the other or neither of the two

She say, "Look out, daddy,
don't want you to tear your pants
You could get wrecked in this dance."
They say whisky'll kill you, but I don't think it will
I'm ridin' with you to the top of the hill

Chorus:
Oh, I miss you, Nettie Moore
And my happiness is o'er
Winter's gone, the river's on the rise
I loved you then and ever shall
But there's no one left here to tell
The world has gone black before my eyes

The bright spark of the steady lights
Has dimmed my sights
When you're around me all my grief gives way
A life time with you is like some heavenly day

Everything I've ever known to be right
has been proven wrong
I'll be drifting along
The woman I'm a-lovin', she rules my heart
No knife could ever cut our love apart.

Today I'll stand in faith and raise
The voice of praise
The sun is strong, I'm standing in the light
I wish to God that it were night

Chorus:
Oh, I miss you, Nettie Moore
And my happiness is o'er
Winter's gone, the river's on the rise
I loved you then and ever shall
But there's no one here left to tell
The world has gone black before my eyes
