"I PITY THE POOR IMMIGRANT" by BOB DYLAN from John Wesley Harding - 1967 NOTES: - The V7 works just fine for the third chord (AM) but in the recording I hear a clean major. - I indicated the lyric syllable each chord change occurs on to the nearest beat, though occasional Dylan's phrasing is slightly different; I've notated for clarity. - The previous chord tab for this song mysteriously left out the G after the F#m in the second half of the verse, but here it's present and thus order is restored to the universe. (Capo 3rd fret) Key of D major INTRO: D, G, A, D (x2) VERSE 1: D G I pity the poor immigrant A D Who wishes he would've stayed home G Who uses all his power to do evil A D But in the end is always left so alone Bm F#m That man whom with his fingers cheats G D And whom lies with every breath G Who passionately hates his life A D And likewise fears his death HARMONICA 1: D, G, A, D VERSE 2: D G I pity the poor immigrant A D Whose strength is spent in vain G Whose heaven is like Ironsides A D Whose tears are like rain Bm F#m Who eats but is not satisfied G D Who hears but does not see G Who falls in love with wealth itself A D And turns his back on me HARMONICA 2: D, G, A, D VERSE 3: D G I pity the poor immigrant A D Who tramples through the mud G Who fills his mouth with laughing A D And who builds his town with blood Bm F#m Whose visions in the final end G D Must shatter like the glass G I pity the poor immigrant A D When his gladness comes to pass OUTRO: D, G, A, D D, G, A, D Bm, F#m, G, D D, G, A, D NO CAPO: I: D = F iii: F#m = Am IV: G = Bb V: A = C vi: Bm = Dm
