Capo 2

[Verse 1]

C                                              Am
It's a mighty hard row that my poor hands have hoed
C                                      Am
My poor feet have traveled a hot dusty road
C                                     Am
Out of your Dust Bowl and Westward we rolled
C                                                 Am
And your deserts were hot and your mountains were cold


[Verse 2] 

C                                   Am
California, Arizona, I harvest your crops
C                                          Am
Well its North up to Oregon to gather your hops
C                                                        Am
Dig the beets from your ground, cut the grapes from your vine
C                                         Am
To set on your table your light sparkling wine


[Verse 3a] - On Minnesota Tapes

C                                        Am
I worked in your orchards of peaches and prunes
C                                         Am
I slept on the ground in the light of the moon
C                                         Am
Every state in the Union us migrants have been
                   C                             Am
We'll work in this fight and we'll fight till we win

[Verse 3b] - On Gaslight Recording

C                                         Am
I slept on the ground in the light of the moon
C                                        Am
I worked in your orchards of peaches and prunes
C                                         Am
Wherever your crops are, I'll lend you my hand
C                                       Am
I'll ramble all over your green growing land


[Verse 4]

C                                        Am
Green pastures of plenty from dry desert ground
C                                              Am
From the Grand Coulee Dam where the waters run down
C                                         Am
Every state in the Union us migrants have been
C                                        Am
We come with the dust and we go with the wind


[Verse 5]

C                                      Am
It's always we rambled, that river and I
C                                               Am
All along your green valley, I will work till I die
C                                        Am
This land I'll defend with my life if need be
         C                                 Am
Cause my pastures of plenty must always be free

About the artist behind Pastures Of Plenty 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]
