VERSE 1:
E
I dreamed I saw St. Augustine,
A               E
Alive as you or me.

Tearing through these quarters,
       F#7        A
In the utmost misery.
       E            
With a blanket underneath his arm,
      A
And a coat of solid gold.
E                 Cm   E
Searching for the very souls,
       A               E
Whom already have been sold.


VERSE 2:
E
"Arise, arise", he cried so loud,
A                    E
With a voice without restraint.

"Come out ye gifted kings and queens,
         F#7        A
And hear my sad complaint.
          E
No martyr is among ye now,
         A  
Whom you can call your own.
E                 Cm   E
So go on your way accordingly,
    A               E
But know you're not alone".

VERSE 3:
E
I dreamed I saw St. Augustine,
A                    E
Alive with fiery breath.

And I dreamed I was amongst the ones,
         F#7        A
That put him out to death.
         E
Oh, I awoke in anger,
         A
So alone and terrified.
E                Cm      E
I put my fingers against the glass,
    A                 E
And bowed my head and cried.

NOTES:
1.  This version just captures the basic chords and omits the lead artistry. 
2.  In a 2005 poll of artists published by Mojo, "I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine" was listed as the 
#76 greatest Bob Dylan song of all time.
3.  Dylan played the song live, in a slow waltz arrangement, at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1969,
a performance included on Isle of Wight Live, part of the 4-CD deluxe edition of The Bootleg Series 
Vol. 10: Another Self Portrait (1969"1971). He also played the song live on the Rolling Thunder Revue 
in the 1970s and with the Heartbreakers in the 1980s, but has rarely performed the song live since.

He is one of the most successful musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries,[1] garnering an unprecedented three inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (The Yardbirds, Cream, and solo). Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time[2], Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"[3] and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[4]

Clapton is credited as an innovator in several phases of his career, which have included blues-rock (with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds) and psychedelic rock (with Cream). Clapton has also achieved great chart success in genres ranging from Delta blues (Me and Mr. Johnson) to pop ("Change the World") and reggae (Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff"). Clapton also achieved fame with Derek and the Dominos through the hit song "Layla".
