Shelter From the Storm

This one was pretty easy to figure out. The first tab I posted was messed up but
I think I got this one right. 
Any questions, just email me at [email protected]

The main chord progression is E A E B7 A E

Strum an E chord for the intro for 4 measures with 4 beats to each measure.

E                          A
'Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
E                    B7             A                E  
When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud
                               A                  E
I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form.
         
"Come in," she said,
            B7 A                E
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."

(Transfer): E A E A E
E                             A                  E
And if I pass this way again, you can rest assured
                           B7      A              E
I'll always do my best for her, on that I give my word
                                                A              E
In a world of steel-eyed death, and men who are fighting to be warm.

"Come in," she said,
           B7  A                E
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."

E A E

A                     E
Not a word was spoke between us, there was little risk involved
                      B7             A             E
Everything up to that point had been left unresolved.
                                 A               E
Try imagining a place where it's always safe and warm.

"Come in," she said,
           B7  A                E
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."

E A E A

E                                 A             E
I was burned out from exhaustion, buried in the hail,
                B7         A                E
Poisoned in the bushes an' blown out on the trail,
                         A
Hunted like a crocodile, ravaged in the corn.
 
"Come in," she said,
           B7  A                E
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."

E A E A E

E                            A                E
Suddenly I turned around and she was standin' there
                      B7                A                 E
With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair.
                       A                                    E
She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns.

"Come in," she said,
           B7  A                E
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."

E A E A E

E                              A                      E
Now there's a wall between us, somethin' there's been lost
                    B7       A              E
I took too much for granted, got my signals crossed.
                                     A                 E
Just to think that it all began on a long-forgotten morn.

"Come in," she said,
           B7  A                E
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."

E A E A E

E                                            A                E
Well, the deputy walks on hard nails and the preacher rides a mount
                   B7                 A                    E
But nothing really matters much, it's doom alone that counts
                             A
And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn.

"Come in," she said,
           B7  A                E
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."

E A E A E
 
E                                 A               E
I've heard newborn babies wailin' like a mournin' dove
                 B7           A                E
And old men with broken teeth stranded without love.
                                    A                        E
Do I understand your question, man, is it hopeless and forlorn?

"Come in," she said,
           B7  A                E
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."

E A E E A E

E                            A                   E
In a little hilltop village, they gambled for my clothes
                   B7              A                   E
I bargained for salvation an' they gave me a lethal dose.
                              A
I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn.

"Come in," she said,
           B7  A                    E
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."

E A E E A E

E                                             A                  E
Well, I'm livin' in a foreign country but I'm bound to cross the line
               B7            A                    E
Beauty walks a razor's edge, someday I'll make it mine.
                                            A                E
If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born.

"Come in," she said,
           B7  A                E
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."

About the artist behind Shelter From The Storm 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]
