Born Bob Dylan

Verse: C – D – Em

If I don’t say anything it’s wrong

if I said it, it wouldn’t come out right

It’s been keeping me up all night

 

Half my life I’ve been told to shut up

so how am I gonna open up

wish you could just read my mind

 

Pre-chorus:

If I shared all of me would you run away

if I sugar coated what I had to say

in poetry would it make you stay

 

 

Chorus:

I wish I was born Bob Dylan

Had all the words to speak my feelings

I wish I stood up like Rosa Parks

and followed my heart

unafraid of the truth

even if I stood alone

I didn’t know how it was gonna go

even if the water was cold I’d take a deep breath

and get it off my chest

and hope for the best

 

Verse 2:

They say either way you win

if it’s mutual why hold it in

and it’s not meant to be

and you tell the truth it will set you free

 

but all their wisdom doesn’t help me now

I’m scared and I gotta find out

how to speak my mind

without metaphors and prose and rhymes

and still make you mine

 

Pre chorus 2:

I hope you know what I mean when I’m acting mean

cuz I don’t say what I mean when I’m caught in-between

and I’m afraid

the real you is eluding me

 

Chorus:

1 x D – Am – C – G

2 x D – Em – C – G

1 x D – Em – C

I wish I was born Bob Dylan

Had all the words to speak my feelings

I wish I stood up like Rosa Parks

and followed my heart

unafraid of the truth

even if I stood alone

I didn’t know how it was gonna go

even if the water was cold I’d take a deep breath

and get it off my chest

 

Bridge:

And hope you will catch

me when I fall

and love me back

when I show you my all

Fill in the blanks

if I’m not making sense

be patient with me

 

Chorus:

1 x D – Am – C – G

2 x D – Em – C – G

1 x D – Em – C

I wish I was born Bob Dylan

Had all the words to speak my feelings

I wish I stood up like Rosa Parks

and followed my heart

unafraid of the truth

even if I stood alone

I didn’t know how it was gonna go

even if the water was cold I’d take a deep breath

and get it off my chest

and hope for the best

 

Even if I stood alone

didn’t know how it was gonna go

gotta get it off my chest

and hope for the best

 

if I don’t say anything it’s wrong if I said it it wouldn’t come out right
