Positively 4th Street chords
Bob Dylan *

G         Am
You got a lotta nerve
   C              G
To say you are my friend
When I was down
C        Em          D      
You just stood there grinning

G         Am
You got a lotta nerve
   C                             G
To say you got a helping hand to lend
D                   C
You just want to be on
    Em          D      
The side that's winning

G         Am
You say I let you down
C                      G
You know it's not like that
If you're so hurt
C        Em        D      
Why then don't you show it

G           Am
You say you lost your faith
C                         G
But that's not where it's at
    D      C        Em
You had no faith to lose
And you know it

G          Am
I know the reason
C                       G
That you talk behind my back
  D           C        Em
I used to be among the crowd
You're in with

G                  Am
Do you take me for such a fool
C                    G
To think I'd make contact
         D       C        Em
With the one who tries to hide
What he don't know to begin with

G          Am
You see me on the street
C                 G
You always act surprised
          D                   C
You say, "How are you?" "Good luck"
    Em        D      
But you don't mean it
G                Am
When you know as well as me
             C          G
You'd rather see me paralyzed
D             C             Em
Why don't you just come out once
And scream it

G            Am
No, I do not feel that good
C                                G
When I see the heartbreaks you embrace
D                 C
If I was a master thief
   Em       D      
Perhaps I'd rob them

G                        Am
And now I know you're dissatisfied
          C                 G
With your position and your place
D              C
Don't you understand
     Em     D      
It's not my problem

G               Am
I wish that for just one time
C                         G
You could stand inside my shoes
    D                 C
And just for that one moment
Em      D      
I could be you

G                    Am
Yes, I wish that for just one time
C                         G
You could stand inside my shoes
D                 C       Em
You'd know what a drag it is
To see you

About the artist behind Positively 4th Street Chords:

Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, author, musician, and a poet who has been a major figure in popular music for five decades. Much of Dylan's most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he became an informal chronicler and a reluctant figurehead of American unrest. A number of his songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'",[1] became anthems of the anti-war and civil rights movements. His most recent studio album, Modern Times, released on August 29, 2006, entered the U.S. album chart at number one, and that same year was named Album of the Year by Rolling Stone magazine.[2]

Dylan's early lyrics incorporated politics, social commentary, philosophy and literary influences, defying existing pop music conventions and appealing widely to the counterculture. While expanding and personalizing musical styles, he has shown steadfast devotion to many traditions of American song, from folk and country/blues to gospel, rock and roll and rockabilly, to English, Scottish and Irish folk music, and even jazz and swing.[3][4]

Dylan performs with the guitar, keyboard and harmonica. Backed by a changing lineup of musicians, he has toured steadily since the late 1980s on what has been dubbed the "Never Ending Tour". Although his accomplishments as performer and recording artist have been central to his career, his songwriting is generally regarded as his greatest contribution.[5]

Over many years, Dylan has been recognized and honored for his songwriting, performing, and recording. His records have earned Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy Awards, and he has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 1999, Dylan was included in TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people of the 20th century, and in 2004, he was ranked number two in Rolling Stone magazine's list of "Greatest Artists of All Time", second only to The Beatles.[6] In January 1990, Dylan was made a Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres by French Minister of Culture Jack Lang; in 2000, he was awarded the Polar Music Prize by the Royal Swedish Academy of Music;[7] and in 2007, Dylan was awarded the Prince of Asturias Award in Arts in Spain by the Fundación Príncipe de Asturias. He has been nominated several times for the Nobel Prize in Literature.[8][9][10]

In 2008, Dylan was awarded a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation for his "profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power."[11] Previous recipients of this award include Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane.[12]
