Title: The Times They Are A-Changin'
By: Bob Dylan
Meter: 3/8

[Intro]
G     G     G


[Verse 1]
     G             Em         C2       G      G
Come gather 'round people Wherever you roam
      G              Em      C2             D
And admit that the waters   Around you have grown
      G            Em             C2                  G     G
And accept it that soon You'll be drenched to the bone
        G           Am            D      D
If your time to you   is worth savin' 
         D               C2                G/B          D/A
Then you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone
        G         G            D       G
For the times they     are a-chang - in' 


[Interlude]
G       Em      C2     G      G    G    G


[Verse 2]
     G             Em         C2                    G     G
Come writers and critics Who prophesize with your pen
      G            Em              C2            D
And keep your eyes wide The chance won't come again
      G                Em           C2              G     G
And don't speak too soon For the wheel's still in spin
             G             Am            D       D
And there's no tellin' who   that it's namin'
         D        C2             G/B         D/A
For the loser now      will be later  to    win
        G        C2       D     G
For the times they are a-changin'


[Interlude]
Em    C2    G     G      D     C2     C2    D     D     D     D


[Verse 3]
       G          Em          C2             G      G
Come senators, congressmen Please heed the call
      G              Em             C2          D
Don't stand in the doorway Don't block up the hall
    G                Em         C2          G       G
For he that gets hurt Will be he who has stalled
          G          Am              D      D
There's a battle outside and it is ragin'
         D               C2          G/B         D/A
It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
        G        C2       D     G
For the times they are a-changin'


[Interlude]
G      D     C2    D    G      G


[Verse 4]
     G             Em             C2       G     G
Come mothers and fathers Throughout the land
        G        Em            C2          D
And don't criticize What you can't understand
      G                Em           C2              G      G
Your sons and your daughters Are beyond your command
     G             Am        D     D
Your old road is rapidly agin'
           D            C2             G/B            D/A
Please get out of the new one if you can't lend your hand
        G        C2       D      G
For the times they are a-changin'

[Interlude]
G     Em     C2    G     G     D    C2    C2    D   D    G   Em    C2   G    G    G   G


[Verse 5]
     G            Em          C2          G       G
The line it is drawn    The curse it is cast
     G          Em        C2       D
The slow one now   Will later be fast
       G          Em        C2        G     G
As the present now   Will later be past
     G         Am         D     D
The order is rapidly fadin'
         D            C2         G/B        D/A
And the first one now    will later be   last
        G        C2       D     G
For the times they are a-changin'


[Outro]
G     Em     C2    G     G     C2    D    G

Sorry, but the varying interludes are there as early as version 6 ...

Maguri, when I posted this version in Feb, 2016, yours (version 6) wasn't even close to this. Perhaps you edited it since? I had to re-post mine recently for some reason, I have no idea why, but someone was able to reject mine 4 months after it was posted and properly accepted. Mine is straight up good with a lot of care on the accuracy. Hope you enjoy it everyone.

Thank you. The use of C2 and the sequence of D C2 G/B D/A sound wonderful. I do not usually consider tabs that have no rating, but liked none of the others sets, especially at that progression. Love this one.
Some variations for the cords, especially the Am:
G 320022
Em7 022033
Cadd9 x32030 [or x32033]
Am7 x02213
