[Intro]
D  Bm  D  Bm   D

[Verse 1]
Bm
Turning and turning
G                  D
Within the widening gyre
Bm                A      G       D
The falcon cannot hear the falconer
Bm
Things fall apart
    G             D
The center cannot hold
      Bm           G
And a blood dimmed tide
     A               D
Is loosed upon the world

Bm
Nothing is sacred
G            D
The ceremony sinks
Bm            A
Innocence is drowned
G         D
In anarchy
    Bm          
The best lack conviction
A                   D
Given some time to think
        Bm                  G
And the worst are full of passion
        A   D
Without mercy

[Refrain]
G                D           Bm
Surely some revelation is at hand
  
Surely it's the second coming
                  A              D
And the wrath has finally taken form
G                       A
For what is this rough beast
Bm               A
Its hour come at last
Bm               G               D
Slouching toward Bethlehem to be born
Bm               G               D
Slouching toward Bethlehem to be born

[Verse 2]
Bm
Hoping and hoping
   G                 D
As if by my weak faith
Bm                  A
The spirit of this world
       G       D      
Would heal and rise
Bm
Vast are the shadows
     G            D
That straddle and strafe
   Bm               A
And struggle in the darkness
G             D
Troubling my eyes

Bm
Shaped like a lion
           G         D
It has the head of a man
       Bm       A
With a gaze as blank
    G               D
And pitiless as the sun
         Bm 
And it's moving its slow thighs
           G       D
Across the desert sands
         Bm        A
Through dark indignant
    G         D
Reeling falcons

[Refrain]
G                D           Bm
Surely some revelation is at hand
  
Surely it's the second coming
                  A              D
And the wrath has finally taken form
G                       A
For what is this rough beast
Bm               A
Its hour come at last
Bm               G               D
Slouching toward Bethlehem to be born
Bm               G               D
Slouching toward Bethlehem to be born

[Verse 3]
Bm
Raging and raging
    G              D
It rises from the deep
Bm 
Opening its eyes
A        G         D
After twenty centuries
Bm
Vexed to a nightmare
A        G       D
Out of a stony sleep
Bm            A
By a rocking cradle
G             D
By the Sea of Galilee

[Refrain]
G                D           Bm
Surely some revelation is at hand
  
Surely it's the second coming
                  A              D
And the wrath has finally taken form
G                       A
For what is this rough beast
Bm               A
Its hour come at last
Bm               G               D
Slouching toward Bethlehem to be born
Bm               G               D
Slouching toward Bethlehem to be born
