VERSE 1:
E
I dreamed I saw St. Augustine,
A               E
Alive as you or me.

Tearing through these quarters,
       F#7        A
In the utmost misery.
       E            
With a blanket underneath his arm,
      A
And a coat of solid gold.
E                 C#m   
Searching for the very souls,
       A               E
Whom already have been sold.


VERSE 2:
E
"Arise, arise", he cried so loud,
A                    E
With a voice without restraint.

"Come out ye gifted kings and queens,
         F#7        A
And hear my sad complaint.
          E
No martyr is among ye now,
         A  
Whom you can call your own.
E                 C#m   
So go on your way accordingly,
    A               E
But know you're not alone".

VERSE 3:
E
I dreamed I saw St. Augustine,
A                    E
Alive with fiery breath.

And I dreamed I was amongst the ones,
         F#7        A
That put him out to death.
         E
Oh, I awoke in anger,
         A
So alone and terrified.
E                C#m      
I put my fingers against the glass,
    A                 E
And bowed my head and cried.

NOTES:
1.  This version just captures the basic chords and omits the lead artistry. 
2.  In a 2005 poll of artists published by Mojo, "I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine" was listed as the 
#76 greatest Bob Dylan song of all time.
3.  Dylan played the song live, in a slow waltz arrangement, at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1969,
a performance included on Isle of Wight Live, part of the 4-CD deluxe edition of The Bootleg Series 
Vol. 10: Another Self Portrait (1969–1971). He also played the song live on the Rolling Thunder Revue 
in the 1970s and with the Heartbreakers in the 1980s, but has rarely performed the song live since.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Dreamed_I_Saw_St._Augustine.
4.  This pattern also works for transposition to Capo 4, in C.
