A Hard Rains A Gonna Fall Chords (ver 2) - Bob Dylan


 
A Hard Rains A Gonna Fall Chords
This is a great song with awsome lyrics.  Bob plays with his pinky finger throughout
the song, especially on the "D" and "A" chords, so do the same.  The version tabbed is
off his album "Bob Dylan Live in 1964."  Place a cappo on the third fret for accuracy.
I couldn't find the name for the "A" chord at the end of the pre-verse so I just called
it "A2."  The chord goes like this:

A2:  x02230

The "Dsus4" goes like this:

Dsus4:  xx0233

Just drop your pinky on the "A" chord to hit this chord easily.  Do the same with
the "Dsus4" chord. If I need to show you the other chords, you should shouldn't play
this song. Have fun and enjoy!  

Intro
D    Dsus4     D

Pre-Verse
D                           A      D

Verse
D                             A                   D    Dsus4     D
I stumbled on the sides of twelve misty mountains
D                            A                  D     Dsus4      D
I walked and I crawled on six crooked highways
D                               A               D     Dsus4      D
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
D                            A              D 
I been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
  
Chorus
             D
And it's a hard
               A
And it's a hard
               D
And it's a hard
               A
And it's a hard
             D     G               D     Dsus    D
And it's a hard rain's a gonna fall

Follow this pattern for the whole song and don't forget to place the cappo on the third
fret or the it won't sound similar.  Enjoy!

About the artist behind A Hard Rains A Gonna Fall 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]
