Bob Dylan - Too Late: chords

G
Whether there was a murder
D                     Em
I don't know, I can't say,
       C                    G   C/G G C/G
I was visiting a friend in jail.

           G
There were only two women
         D
at the scene at the time
Em                          C
Neither one of them saw a thing,
                   G           C/G  G
both of them were wearing veils

                    C           Csus4
They said it was a natural situation
         C
that he reached too high,
           Csus4      C
tumbled back to the ground
                    D
You know what they say about
                    Dsus4       D
being nice to people on the way up,
                           G                Am
sooner or later you might meet them coming down.

            G                     Em
Well, it's too late to bring him back
           C
Too late, too late, too late,
 D                      G           C/G G C/G
Too late, too late to bring him back

           G
He had a brother named Paul
         D                 Em
hangin' out at the Café Royal
               C              G
where all the company is mixed

G
Pretty to look at,
    D
he wants someone to throw the book at
Em
but you know he drinks,
      C                 G
and drinks can be fixed.

        C
Sing me one more song
           Csus4
about your summer romance
    C
Or maybe that one about your
Csus4
one-night stand with Errol Flynn
          D
In these times of compassion
        Dsus4
when conformity's in fashion
 D
Say one more stupid thing to me
   G              Am
before the final nail's driven in

               G                     Em
You know it's too late to bring him back
 C                   D                     G
Too late, Too late, Too late to bring him back

     G
Dr. Silverspoon
         D
from the Ecstasy Ballroom
Em              C
He's a retired businessman
              G
who feeds off everyone he's touched
          G
He gives money to the church,
        E
to foundations of research
Em
He's not someone you can
C                     G
play around with too much

           C
There's a Rosetta Blake
      Csus4                      C
who's been to both sides of the lake
she's rough to look at but she's fit
                 D                 Dsus4
She'll feed you coconut bread and spiced buns in bed
         D
and you won't have to worry about
D7                Am
sleepin' with you head face down in the plate.

          G                     Em
But it's too late to bring him back
 C                   D
Too late, Too late, Too late,
               G
it's too late to bring him back

      G                 D
Gonna arrange to see a man tonight
      Em                     C
He'll tell you some secret things
                           G
that you think might open some doors
       G                      D
How to enter in the gates of paradise?
    Em
No, not really.
      C                     G
More like going crazy from carrying
               C/G              G C/G
a burden never meant to be yours

           C                         Csus4          C
From the stage they'll be doing the bumps and the grinds
A whore will pass the hat, collect a hundred grand
say "Well, boys - thanks!"
              D                        Dsus4
They like to take all this money from sin,
       D
build big castles to study in,
               D7          Am                           D7
They'll sing Amazing Grace all the way to the Swiss bank
            G                     Em
Well, it's too late to bring him back
 C                   D
Too late, Too late, Too late,
                   G           C/G G C/G
it's too late to bring him back
