Bob Dylan 1981

Capo I

D G 4x

D             G               D                  G
In the time of my confession, in the hour of my deepest need
         D               G             A
When the pool of tears beneath my feet flood every newborn seed
          D               G     D                G
There's a dying voice within me reaching out somewhere
D              G                 A 
Toiling in the danger and in the morals of despair.

A                            D              A
Don't have the inclination to look back on any mistake
                                       D                 A
Like Cain, I now behold this chain of events that I must break
       D           G            D                G
In the fury of the moment I can see the master's hand
   D               G            A     G        D
In every leaf that trembles, in every grain of sand.

D               G             D              G
Oh, the flowers of indulgence and the weeds of yesteryear
     D                    G                    A
Like criminals, they have choked the breath of conscience and good cheer
    D              G                D                 G
The sun beat down upon the steps of time to light the way 
   D                G                A
To ease the pain of idleness and the memory of decay.

A                        D                  A
I gaze into the doorway of temptation's angry flame
                                 D              A
And every time I pass that way I always hear my name
     D            G         D            G
Then onward in my journey I come to understand
     D             G             A     G        D
That every hair is numbered like every grain of sand.

break

D                 G             D             G
I have gone from rags to riches in the sorrow of the night
       D             G                      A
In the violence of a summer's dream, in the chill of a wintry light
       D               G          D           G
In the bitter dance of loneliness fading into space
       D                G            A
In the broken mirror of innocence on each forgotten face.

A                                   D             A
I hear the ancient footsteps like the motion of the sea
                                               D               A
Sometimes I turn, there's someone there, other times it's only me
     D              G              D          G
I am hanging in the balance of the reality of man
     D             G             A     G        D
Like every sparrow falling, like every grain of sand.

About the artist behind Every Grain Of Sand Acoustic 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]
