VERSE 1:
 D                                   
Fat man lookin’ in a blade of steel,
 D 
Thin man lookin’ at his last meal.
 G D 
Hollow man lookin’ in a cottonfield,
             G D 
For dignity.


VERSE 2:
 D 
Wise man lookin’ in a blade of grass,
 D 
Young man lookin’ in the shadows that pass.
 G D 
Poor man lookin’ through painted glass,
             A D 
For dignity.


CHORUS 1:
 A 
Somebody got murdered on New Year’s Eve,
 G D 
Somebody said dignity was the first to leave.
 G D 
I went into the city, went into the town,
 Em A A D 
Went into the land of the midnight sun.


VERSE 3:
 D 
Searchin’ high, searchin’ low,

Searchin’ everywhere I know.
 G D 
Askin’ the cops wherever I go,
                        G D 
Have you seen dignity?


VERSE 4:
 D 
Blind man breakin’ out of a trance,
 D 
Puts both his hands in the pockets of chance.
 G D 
Hopin’ to find one circumstance,
            G D 
Of dignity.


VERSE 5:
 D 
I went to the wedding of Mary Lou,
 D 
She said, “I don’t want nobody see me talkin’ to you”.
 G D 
Said she could get killed if she told me what she knew,
               G D 
About dignity.


CHORUS 2:
 A 
I went down where the vultures feed,
 G D 
I would’ve gone deeper, but there wasn’t any need.
 G D 
Heard the tongues of angels and the tongues of men,
 Em A A D 
Wasn’t any difference to me.


VERSE 6:
 D G 
Chilly wind sharp as a razor blade,
 D 
House on fire, debts unpaid.
 G D 
Gonna stand at the window, gonna ask the maid
                        G D 
Have you seen dignity?


BRIDGE 1:
| D G D | D G D |


VERSE 7:
 D 
Drinkin’ man listens to the voice he hears,
 D 
In a crowded room full of covered-up mirrors.
 G D 
Lookin’ into the lost forgotten years,
             G D 
For dignity.


VERSE 8:
 D 
Met Prince Phillip at the home of the blues,
 D 
Said he’d give me information if his name wasn’t used.
 G D 
He wanted money up front, said he was abused.
            G D 
By dignity.


CHORUS 3
 A 
Footprints runnin’ ’cross the silver sand,
 G D 
Steps goin’ down into tattoo land.
 G D 
I met the sons of darkness and the sons of light,
 Em A A D 
In the bordertowns of despair.


VERSE 9:
 D 
Got no place to fade,
