Every Grain Of Sand chords  acoustic 
Bob Dylan 1981 

Capo I

C F 4x

       C             F               C                  F
In the time of my confession, in the hour of my deepest need
         C               F             G
When the pool of tears beneath my feet flood every newborn seed
          C               F     C                F
There's a dying voice within me reaching out somewhere
C              F                 G 
Toiling in the danger and in the morals of despair.

      G                            C              G
Don't have the inclination to look back on any mistake
                                       C                 G
Like Cain, I now behold this chain of events that I must break
       C           F            C                F
In the fury of the moment I can see the master's hand
   C               F            G     F        C
In every leaf that trembles, in every grain of sand.

        C               F             C              F
Oh, the flowers of indulgence and the weeds of yesteryear
     C                    F                    G
Like criminals, they have choked the breath of conscience and good cheer
    C              F                C                 F
The sun beat down upon the steps of time to light the way 
   C                F                G
To ease the pain of idleness and the memory of decay.

  G                        C                  G
I gaze into the doorway of temptation's angry flame
                                 C              G
And every time I pass that way I always hear my name
     C            F         C            F
Then onward in my journey I come to understand
     C             F             G     F        C
That every hair is numbered like every grain of sand.


       C                 F             C             F
I have gone from rags to riches in the sorrow of the night
       C             F                      G
In the violence of a summer's dream, in the chill of a wintry light
       C               F          C           F
In the bitter dance of loneliness fading into space
       C                F            G
In the broken mirror of innocence on each forgotten face.

  G                                   C             G
I hear the ancient footsteps like the motion of the sea
                                               C               G
Sometimes I turn, there's someone there, other times it's only me
     C              F              C          F
I am hanging in the balance of the reality of man
     C             F             G     F        C
Like every sparrow falling, like every grain of sand.
