Lyrics From

BOB DYLAN Dignity Lyrics, singer by BOB DYLAN

Fat man lookin� in a blade of steel
Thin man lookin� at his last meal
Hollow man lookin� in a cotton field
For dignity

Wise man lookin� in a blade of grass
Young man lookin� in the shadows that pass
Poor man lookin� through painted glass
For dignity

Somebody got murdered on New Year�s Eve
Somebody said dignity was the first to leave
I went into the city, went into the town
Went into the land of the midnight sun

Searchin� high, searchin� low
Searchin� everywhere I know
Askin� the cops wherever I go
Have you seen dignity?

Blind man breakin� out of a trance
Puts both his hands in the pockets of chance
Hopin� to find one circumstance
Of dignity

I went to the wedding of Mary Lou
She said, �I don�t want nobody see me talkin� to you�
Said she could get killed if she told me what she knew
About dignity

I went down where the vultures feed
I would�ve gone deeper, but there wasn�t any need
Heard the tongues of angels and the tongues of men
Wasn�t any difference to me

Chilly wind sharp as a razor blade
House on fire, debts unpaid
Gonna stand at the window, gonna ask the maid
Have you seen dignity?

Drinkin� man listens to the voice he hears
In a crowded room full of covered-up mirrors
Lookin� into the lost forgotten years
For dignity

Met Prince Phillip at the home of the blues
Said he�d give me information if his name wasn�t used
He wanted money up front, said he was abused
By dignity

Footprints runnin� �cross the silver sand
Steps goin� down into tattoo land
I met the sons of darkness and the sons of light
In the bordertowns of despair

Got no place to fade, got no coat
I�m on the rollin� river in a jerkin� boat
Tryin� to read a note somebody wrote
About dignity

Sick man lookin� for the doctor�s cure
Lookin� at his hands for the lines that were
And into every masterpiece of literature
For dignity

Englishman stranded in the blackheart wind
Combin� his hair back, his future looks thin
Bites the bullet and he looks within
For dignity

Someone showed me a picture and I just laughed
Dignity never been photographed
I went into the red, went into the black
Into the valley of dry bone dreams

So many roads, so much at stake
So many dead ends, I�m at the edge of the lake
Sometimes I wonder what it�s gonna take
To find dignity
