[Verse 1]

     G             Em         C        G
Come gather 'round people wherever you roam
      G            Am      C              D
And admit that the waters around you have grown
      G            Em             C               G
And accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
        G       Am           D
If your time to you is worth savin'
         D            D7                 Gmaj7/D     D
Then you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone,
        G                 C    D  G
For the times, they are a chang - in'

[Verse 2]

     G           Em                C              G
Come writers and critics who prophesize with your pen
    G              Am              C           D
And keep your eyes wide the chance won't come again
    G               Em           C                G
And don't speak too soon for the wheel's still in spin
            G          Am            D
And there's no tellin' who that it's namin'
        D     D7          Gmaj7/D  D
For the loser now will be later to win
        G                 C    D  G
For the times they are a-changin'

[Verse 3]

     G           Em      C              G
Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
    G          Am            C          D
And don't criticize what you don't understand
     G             Em              C            G
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
     G           Am      D
Your old road is rapidly agin'
           D          D7             Gmaj7/D      D
Please get out of the new one if you can't lend a hand
        G                 C    D  G
For the times they are a-changin'

[Verse 3]

     G         Em          C               G
Come senators, congressmen please heed the call
      G            Am             C            D
Don't stand in the doorway, don't block up the hall
    G            Em           C          G
For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled
          G         Am            D
There's a battle outside and it's ragin'
      D               D7          Gmaj7/D     D
It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
        G                 C    D  G
For the times they are a-changin'

[Verse 4]

    G          Em        C           G
The line it is drawn the curse it is cast
    G        Am       C        D
The slow one now will later be fast
       G       Em       C        G
As the present now will later be past
    G        Am      D
The order is rapidly fadin'
        D         D7       Gmaj7/D  D
And the first one now will later be last
        G                 C    D  G
For the times they are a-changin'

Kickass tab man! my only problem was that Gmaj7 sounds better and less forced when played as normal g.

other than that, awesome tab man!

I think that line where Bob sings "you'll sink like a stone follows a progression more like this:


I just found the D7 and the Gmaj7 didn't seem to fit as well.
